Mumbai: Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor says his father Pankaj Kapoor was jealous when he was interacting with co-star Alia Bhatt.
Director Vikas Bahl’s ‘Shaandaar’ will for the first time bring together father-son pair – Pankaj Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor – on the screen, where Pankaj plays the role of Alia’s 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.
The story of ‘Shaandaar’ revolves around the wedding of Alia’s elder sister, where plays Shahid the wedding planner.
The trailer shows great chemistry between Alia and Shahid, and more so between Shahid and Pankaj Kapoor.
“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 relationship with the format of the film. As in the film he plays Alia’s father and thinks no one is good for his daughter,” the 34-year-old actor said.
The ‘Haider’ star had great time shooting some scenes with his father. “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,” he added.
The ‘Vivah’ actor has earlier been directed by his father in ‘Mausam’ (2011) .
“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’ will hit the screens on October 22.
