Anil Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Neetu Kapoor and Kiara Advani began filming Jug Jugg Jeeyo last month. The actors celebrated Diwali together this year in Chandigarh. Here's what Anil Kapoor shared on Diwali.
On the first day of the shoot, Neetu Kapoor posted a picture of herself getting ready for a sequence and wrote: "Back on set after so many years. To new beginnings and the magic of the movies. I feel YOUR love and presence. From mom, to Kapoor Sahab (Rishi Kapoor), to Ranbir (Kapoor) always being with me... now I find myself all by myself, feeling a little scared, but I know you are always with me."
Jug Jugg Jeeyo is being produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions.
