Here's Ishaan and Malavika's look from the film.
Ishaan said that before signing Beyond The Clouds, he discussed the project with mother Neelima Azeem, Shahid and also filmmaker Karan Johar, who is producing his Hindi film Dhadak. "Because I stay with my mom and spend most of my time with her so obviously I spoke to her. The first person after that I would go to would be my brother. I felt strongly about the film. I am doing another film with Karan Johar (Dhadak). At that time we were in talks about starting that film as my first film so I spoke to him (Karan) as well and he was gracious, he let me go ahead and do this film first. These were the first three people I spoke to," he said, PTI reported.
Ishaan's Dhadak, a remake of Marathi blockbuster Sairat, also starrs Sridevi and Boney Kapoor's daughter Janhvi. It will Janhvi's debut Bollywood film. Dhadak is directed by Shashank Khaitan and is scheduled to hit the screens this July.
