Shraddha Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor
With the pandemic-induced lockdown disrupting shoots in many states across the country, the schedule of Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor’s yet-untitled film too, has gone awry. The third schedule of the Luv Ranjan-directed rom-com was originally slated for the second week of May. Now, it is heard that the director is planning to call for lights-camera-action from June 20.
A source from the creative team reveals, “The upcoming schedule is important as Luv intends to film the emotional scenes, featuring the leads, and Dimple Kapadia and Boney Kapoor who play Ranbir’s parents. After the schedule was cancelled due to the lockdowns in Noida and Mumbai, Luv and co-producer Ankur Garg went back to the drawing board and reworked everyone’s dates. The June leg will be conducted in either Delhi or Uttar Pradesh, depending on where the restrictions are lifted as they require live locations.”
Even after the team pulls off the upcoming stint, there will be little respite for Kapoor or his director. “Spain forms the backdrop for a small portion of the rom-com. For now, they are planning to head to the European country in September. The team wants to wrap up all the scenes on home turf first, and then head abroad, depending on how the situation unfolds in Spain.” The family drama, which went on floors in Noida earlier this year, is slated for a March 2022 release.
Producers Ranjan and Garg remained unavailable for comment.
