With Sonam Kapoor heading for Mumbai for the promotion and release of her new film I Hate Luv Storys, shooting for Mausam in Edinburgh slackened up a bit.
The hero Shahid Kapoor, who also happens to be the director’s son, decided to take off for a three-day visit to nearby London. Only father Pankaj Kapoor knew about Shahid’s whereabouts while the rest of the unit was kept in the dark about his visit.
Though Shahid maintained before Sonam’s departure that Pankaj Kapoor had planned solo sequences with him while waiting for Sonam to return, the fact is that the unit was left with very little to do after Sonam’s fleeting return to Mumbai, which was planned well in advance.
"Shahid didn’t have much shooting to do once Sonam left. So he took off for a secret holiday to London for four days," a source said.
A co-actor from the unit let the cat out of the bag. He said: "I don’t know what Shahid told others. But the truth is, without Sonam there was little he could do for the camera. ‘Mausam’ is a love story and 90 percent of the time their scenes are together. With Sonam gone Shahid left for London. For what, we don’t know."
Apparently on his return, Shahid was teased mercilessly about his "secret rendezvous".
