The line 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga' has been immortalised since a song with the same title was featured in the 1994 iconic film '1942: A Love Story', starring Anil Kapoor and Manisha Koirala. The same line has been taken now as a film title, once again starring Anil Kapoor, but this time with his real-life daughter Sonam Kapoor, actress Juhi Chawla and Rajkummar Rao.

Anil Kapoor on Thursday shared the teaser of the film 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga', and the brief video itself gives a hint to the movie. Sonam, earlier on Thursday had introduced her character in the film as "Sweety Chaudhary: Quiet one | Punjabi | Syaapa", but the other characters are yet to be revealed. 

The teaser begins with snippets from 1942: A Love Story and the song 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga', describing it as a simple love story, before switching to 2018, where it's a 'Syaapa' love story.

A voice over from Sonam Kapoor starts the 2018 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga', as she says, "True love ke raaste mein, koi na koi syaapa hota hi hota hai. Agar na ho... toh love story mein feel kaisi aayegi? (In the path of true love, some or the other trouble surely happens, if it doesn't then how will there be feel in the love story?)"

In the teaser, there are glimpses of a wedding celebration, rural fields and the father-daughter relationship shared by real-life father-daughter Anil Kapoor and Sonam. 

Produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani films in association with Fox Star Studios, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga marks the debut of Shelly Chopra Dhar as a director. The film is set to release on October 12.
