Today:- “Haider” star Shahid Kapoor says his actor father Pankaj bonded so well with actress Alia Bhatt on the sets of their upcoming film “Shaandaar” that he felt “jealous” when his son used to interact with her.
Director Vikas Bahl’s “Shaandaar” will bring together father-son pair – Pankaj Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor – on the screen for the first time, where the veteran actor plays Alia’s father.
The story of “Shaandaar” revolves around the wedding of Alia’s elder sister, where Shahid plays the wedding planner.
“Alia and my father had some connection. They used to have long conversation and they bonded over food. My father was jealous when I was talking to Alia…
“He was in his character from the film… In the movie he plays Alia’s father and thinks no one is good for his daughter,” the 34-year-old actor said.
The film’s trailer, which was unveiled yesterday, is being appreciated for not only the young on-screen couple’s great chemistry but also for a natural, quirky camaraderie between the actor and his father.
“While shooting, we both got along well. I had great time and it is because of ‘Shaandaar’ that I got to work with my dad. Even my sister Sana is there in the film,” the “Jab We Met” star said.
“There was a scene where we are doing bungee jumping and I got tired waiting for long, putting that harness. But my dad did not remove it even once …I removed it twice,” Shahid recalled a scene with Pankaj.
The “Vivah” actor was directed by his father in 2011 romantic saga “Mausam”.
“He is a natural actor. When I first shot with dad there were three four retakes. I felt I was overacting. The most beautiful moment was that I got an opportunity to act with my Dad… standing in the same frame with him,” Shahid said.
“Shaandaar”, produced by Phantom Films, Dharma Productions and Fox Star Studios, will hit the screens on October 22.
