Alia Bhatt and Shahid Kapoor recently started shooting the first schedule of their upcoming film, "Shandaar" in London.

The film directed by Vikas Bahl from "Queen" fame, is based on a destination wedding. Both the actors in the film are said to portray characters suffering from insomnia and it is the sleepless nights that bring them closer. 

Bhatt who is busy with her shoots along with the other casts of the film, took to social media sites, Twitter and Instagram, to post a picture from the sets of "Shandaar".

Both Shahid and pretty Bhatt looks charming in the picture with a wedding set in the backdrop. The pair looks good together and the plot of the film appears to be promising.

"Shandaar" is Bhatt's first film with the "Jab We Met" actor. The movie also features the "Kaminey" actor's father Pankaj Kapoor and marks the debut of his sister Sanah Kapur. Lyricist and writer Anvita Dutt Guptan has been roped in to pen down the dialogues and songs for "Shandaar".

On the other hand, Bhatt who has delivered superhits like "Student of The Year", "Highway", "2 States" and "Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya" within a short span of her career, has another big project under her belt after "Shandaar".
