Bollywood stars are converging in the United Kingdom one after the other. And no, this is not (entirely) about watching the World Cup matches: They are here to shoot for their respective films, and some people connected to these stars are also mixing business with pleasure.
Let’s look at the list: First it was Ranveer Singh, who, along with his ’83 team and director Kabir Khan, came to watch the matches and create hype for his film during the 2019 World Cup. Wife Deepika Padukone has joined him for the shoot as she plays Romi Dev, Kapil Dev’s wife, in the film.
Meanwhile, Kareena Kapoor has already been in London shooting for Angrezi Medium, a film in which she essays a cop’s role. Her husband, Saif Ali Khan, is also here shooting for his film Jawani Jaaneman with Aalia Furniturewala. It is rumoured that Kareena could do a quick cameo in the film. Karena’s sister Karisma, Lolo’s daughter Samaira and mother Babita were also present with them celebrating Karisma’s birthday there.
“The London summer is a good time to shoot there. The rains have started in India and the England rains are over. So it is a good time to be in Old Blighty to shoot for films. One often saw London shoots earlier, but with more locations available, and easier to shoot, people have shifted there. But it will be good to see London on the big screen again,” opines movie analyst Atul Mohan of Editor Complete Cinema.
