It is a well known fact that newbie Arjun Kapoor is Anil Kapoor's nephew whereas Parineeti Chopra is the cousin sister of Priyanka Chopra. However, the two actors, who were seen in the recently released Ishaqzaade probably had no idea how these family connections and the similar sounding names would lead to a hilarious situation while shooting for the movie in a small town near Lucknow.
Director Habib Faisal was quoted saying, "As the word spread that a film unit was shooting, the names of Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra changed to Anil Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra and the entire town descended on the sets to meet them. The excitement level going down on seeing the two newbies was quite palpable!"
Produced by Yash Raj Films and directed by Habib Faisal, Ishaqzaade is a violent love story set in the fictional town of Almor somewhere in North India.
