Sonam Kapoor taller than Shahid Kapoor
MUMBAI: Edinburgh in Scotland has been chosen as the location where much of the romance between Shahid Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor will unveil in Pankaj Kapur's Mausam . The picturesque locale has been chosen as a substitute for the Kashmir Valley where shooting would be risky due to security reasons. The unit leaves for Edinburgh on May 1 and will be there till June 30.
Though the film unit initially felt that London would be the ideal place for the dreamy romance, they later had second thoughts as a number of Hindi films have been shot there over the years. Also, the virgin locations of Edinburgh were seen as a good reference point for Sonam's character of an innocent and young Kashmiri girl.
Pankaj Kapur's second wife, the talented Supriya Pathak has also joined the cast of his directorial debut Mausam . She will be playing Sonam's aunt in the film.
A source says, "At first, Supriya Pathak was reluctant. She does very little work these days. She played Ranbir Kapoor's mother in Wake Up Sid after much persuasion. Pankaj and Shahid had a hard time convincing her to be a part of Mausam ."
The unit was in for a surprise when they realized during the workshops, conducted earlier this month, that Sonam is taller than Shahid. At first, there was some concern about the height difference but the matter was soon sorted out.
A source from the Mausam team says, "We had not anticipated this. But it was no problem at all. The height difference was just a small matter and we ended up joking about it. Hasn't Sushmita Sen worked with Salman Khan and Govinda? She's taller than both."
