Report9 : It’s official – Yash Raj Films formally announced the female lead of Aditya Chopra’s next directorial venture Befikre, consequently slacking off all guesstimates.
Vaani, who has been on the dole since her debut appearance in the 2013 Yash Raj Production Shuddh Desi Romance has been roped in as the leading lady opposite Ranveer Singh in the much awaited love story. At the outset, there were reports that Anushka Sharma would team up with Ranveer in the film; however, Vaani cleared the air in a video set in a dingy space, which turned out to be Yash Raj Film’s casting office.

Vani who’s only Bollywood stint has been the 2013 Yash Raj production Shuddh Desi Romance, talked turkey about her “tuff” years following her launch. She revealed that while she expected offers to “flood in” after winning most of the promising awards, the scene was just contrary. Kapoor has also worked in a Telugu movie Aaha Kalyanam in 2014.
Just when she started losing faith in her, came Aditya Chopra to her aid. Chopra had “undoubted faith in my potential” remarked Vaani.
Vaani who is thrilled to bits said that “the feeling hasn’t sunk in yet” that she has been zeroed in for Befikre.
Aditya Chopra potentially one of Bollywood’s most powerful filmmakers, has directed only three films as yet – the romantic masterpiece Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Mohabbatein and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi – all of which starred Shah Rukh Khan.
Mr Chopra calls Befikre his “riskiest” and “youngest” film and is making a comeback to the director’s chair after a hiatus of seven years with it. He announced the news officially on September 27, which was his father and veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra’s 83rd birth anniversary.
While DDLJ lay the foundation for SRK as the King of Romance, only time shall tell us if Aditya Chopra can repeat history with Befikre.
