Shahid, Alia look good on-screen: Vikas Bahl
Director Vikas Bahl feels his Shaandaar stars Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, who are paired in a film for the first time, look good together. Bahl, who earlier helmed Kangana Ranaut <g data-gr-id="19"><g data-gr-id="23">starrer</g></g> Queen, said they have a good chemistry.
“I always felt that they look good on-screen. They have a good chemistry in the movie,” Vikas told a
<g data-gr-id="24">media</g> person.
In Shaandaar, Shahid is a wedding planner, <g data-gr-id="25">Jagjinder</g> Joginder, who is organising the marriage function of Alia’s sister. Asked if he was not apprehensive to cast Shahid in a fun film post his serious stint in Haider, Vikas said, “There is no pressure like that. He has hardly done intense roles like <g data-gr-id="28">‘Haider’</g> but he is a fun actor. This is his space and he enjoyed doing the film. We had a lot of fun.”
The film also stars Shahid’s real life father Pankaj Kapur, who plays Alia’s dad in the film. His half sister Sanah Kapoor makes her Bollywood debut with the film, playing the bride in the destination wedding drama.
Co-produced by Phantom Films, Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Fox, Shaandaar will hit
theatres on October 22.
