'Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu' fame Shakun Batra had been waiting to work with Alia Bhatt since the time he shot the internet film 'Alia Genius of The Year' which went viral.
Kapoor & Sons brings Alia Bhatt working for Shakun. The film featuring Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Fawad Khan is produced by Karan Johar. Shooting of the film begins.
"@shakunbatra 's #kapoorandsons kickstarts today!! All the best to the cast and crew!! @S1dharthM @_fawadakhan_ @aliaa08 @chintskap," Johar posted on Twitter.
Sidharth, who was last seen in Ek Villain, asked his fans to wish him luck for their new film.
"Day 1 of #kapoorandsons wish us luck people @shakunbatra @aliaa08 @iFawadKhan @chintskap @karanjohar," he wrote.
The film is a modern family drama with love triangle embedded in it. Batra's directorial debut Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu was also produced by Johar, who even launched Alia and Sidharth in Student Of The Year.
