London, Feb 16 (PTI) Veteran actor Shabana Azmi on Tuesday said collaborating with Hollywood star Emma Thompson on filmmaker Shekhar Kapur's 'What's Love Got To Do With It?' was a 'wonderful' experience.

Azmi, 70, who plays a pivotal part in the upcoming film, praised the Academy Award winner for being a 'generous' co-star.

'It's a wrap for #Emma Thompson. What a warm, generous costar she has been. I will cherish the wonderful times we spent together,' she posted alongside a photograph of her and Thompson, 61.

Billed as a cross-cultural romantic-comedy, 'What's Love Got To Do With It?' is set between London and South Asia.

The film marks Kapur's return to feature length directorial after his 2007 Cate Blanchett-starrer drama 'Elizabeth: The Golden Age'.

The project is the filmmaker's first collaboration with Azmi since 1983's acclaimed Hindi-language family drama 'Masoom' .

'What's Love Got To Do With It?' also stars Lily James of 'Baby Driver' fame and 'Star Trek: Discovery' actor Shazad Latif. It is written and produced by Jemima Khan. PTI SHD RDS RDS
