Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor have kick-started the shooting of Luv Ranjan’s next in Delhi recently. Now, reports are rife that the actors, along with their team, are planning to jet off to Europe to shoot romantic songs in the picturesque backdrop of Spanish locales.
According to a report in a news portal, the cast, including Dimple Kapadia and Boney Kapoor who play Ranbir’s parents in the movie, will head to Europe in September. The report also added that apart from shooting for the romantic numbers, the director will do a few scenes with Ranbir and his on-screen parents. Ranjan reportedly wants to wrap up all the portions on home turf first, and then head to Spain, depending on the situation.
Elaborating further, the report added that given the constantly changing scenario, Luv has drawn up a contingency plan as well. According to it, the team will shoot the indoor portions at a Mumbai studio in September, and push the Europe schedule to a later date.
Music director Pritam, who is composing the music for the film, confirmed that the team is currently stationed in the capital. He added that they intend to shoot two to three romantic songs in the foreign schedule. He also spilled the beans on the song tracks. According to him, they are a combination of dance and romance, along the lines of ‘Badtameez Dil’ from ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’. Pritam added that he is always excited to compose for Ranbir’s films and hopes to recreate their magic.
This will be the first time when producer Boney Kapoor will be showing off his acting prowess. He will be playing Ranbir’s on-screen father in the film. Talking about agreeing to the project, Boney exclusively told ETimes, “As a producer, I have to look into everything. I go to the set to see if my cast and crew are comfortable. Here since I was an actor, the production was taking care of me. I was much more relieved as an actor.”
Boney added that when the script was being written, Luv and his team wanted the character of Ranbir’s father to be somebody like Boney Kapoor, and offered him the role. However, he initially turned it down as he was busy with his production ventures.
