Actress Alia Bhatt took a break from shooting Shaandar to pose for a selfie with co-star Shahid Kapoor and his sister Sarah who reportedly has a role in the film. Shahid tweeted the picture, captioning it, “On set #shaandaar night shoot freezing cold group hug selfie mode fun times @aliaa08 and baby sister keeping me warm.”
The makers of Shaandaar have released their first song, titled Gulaabo, featuring Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.
If you are wondering who Gulaabo is, then here’s the answer – Shahid’s half-sister Sanah Kapur, who is making her Bollywood debut.
Shot in a barn-like setting amidst clanking beer tankards and posters of animated femme fatale Jessica Rabbit (we’re guessing it’ll all make sense when the film releases), the dancers in Gulaabo are clad in suits, fedoras and pencil moustaches. Even the women – especially the women. The menswear that Alia is rocking threatens to steal the attention from Shahid’s dance routine, usually the centrepiece of any song he’s part of.
Gulaabo has quirky lyrics by Anvita Dutt , music by Amit Trivedi and vocals by Vishal Dadlani and Anusha Mani.
Produced by Karan Johar, Shaandaar has been directed by Vikas Bahl and also features Pankaj Kapur, Sanjay Kapoor and Anjana Sukhani.
