The Taj Mahal is on every couple’s must-see list. Imran Khan, who tied the knot with girlfriend Avantika Malik earlier this year, is looking forward to his first visit to the monument. But it will be with Katrina Kaif, his Mere Brother Ki Dulhan co-star.



A source associated with the film says, "When director Zafar Ali was discussing the Delhi-Agra outdoor, Imran asked if they’d be shooting at the Taj since he’s never been there before."



Zafar is filming his most romantic track near the famous monument. Says the source, "The idea of the song is to celebrate love. And since most of the film is set in the North, what better backdrop than the Taj Mahal that was built by Shah Jahan in the memory of his queen, Mumtaz."



ImranImran wrapped up a scedule of Shakun Batra’s Short Term Shaadi with Kareena Kapoor this weekend. He’s currently in Delhi to film a couple of scenes and songs with Katrina for Mere Brother Ki Dulhan before heading to Agra.



Says Imran, "Never mind if my first visit to one of the world’s seven wonders is for work. I’m still very excited." However, wife Avantika Malik won’t be around as she doesn’t accompany him on shoots. But the actor plans to return to the Taj Mahal with her some day soon. He says, "I’d sure like to go there with her. But there is too much work for now. We can take a holiday any time later."
