A source close to the development informs that Ranbir’s dad is a rich and confident guy and the writers wanted someone like Boney to play the part. “Boney was their reference point. While the filmmaker had refused the offer, Luv persisted. He asked Arjun Kapoor to convince him and the actor promptly reached out to him, and also got Anshula, Janhvi, and Khushi to do the convincing. Eventually, Boney gave in,” laughs the source, adding that the filmmaker who is shooting in Hyderabad currently, reaches the sets on Monday, January 11.
Dimple Kapadia, who was Ranbir’s father Rishi Kapoor’s leading lady in ‘Bobby’ will play his mother in the romantic comedy. The film was supposed to kick-off with a schedule in Spain but given that the pandemic is far from over, the makers have started shooting in the country itself.
