Watch: Kareena's cousin Armaan in 'Lekar Hum Deewana Dil'


It seems that that the famous ‘Kapoor Khandan’ of Bollywood is ready to give us another performer though with a different surname this time. Armaan Jain, Kareena and Ranbir’s cousin will be shortly making his Bollywood debut in a production of his brother –in- law Saif Ali Khan’s, that will hit the floors soon. The film is titled ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’. Armaan Jain, is the son of Reema Jain, who is Randhir and Rishi Kapoor’s sister.

Saif recently said in a statement, “For starters, I am co-producing a film with Armaan Jain (Kareena Kapoor's cousin). It is being directed by Imtiaz Ali's brother Arif.”  Along with Saif, Dinesh Vijan and Sunil Lulla of Eros films will co-produce it. The film is also slated to launch another newcomer opposite Armaan. Deeksha Seth and Nikita Dutta are some of the names that are being considered.  After the movie was announced last year there was some buzz around it because the title is inspired by the hit song of the same name from Nasir Hussain’s 1973 superhit ‘Yaadon Ki Baaraat’.  

A source close to the film’s production has stated, “Written by Majrooh Sultanpuri, this chartbuster track by Asha Bhosle and Kishore Kumar was a huge hit when put to tune by R.D. Burman. The makers wanted a musical title for their Armaan Jain starrer and penciled in on Lekar Hum Deewana Dil”.   The film was untitled for almost six months. Then the title ‘Dekho Magar Pyaar Se’ was considered before the current title was selected.

Music maestro A.R Rahman has been given the task of creating the music of the film so we can expect some great tunes in the sound track. The source further said, “Imtiaz Ali has earlier worked with Rahman for the music of Rockstar and now that his brother Arif Ali is debuting as a director with Lekar Hum Deewana Dil, it is expected that the outcome would be memorable once again”. Whether the new film’s music matches the success of the original now remains to be seen. The promo of the film is expected to come out in a week.

Armaan has been working hard on his debut. As for his look in the film, he has grown stubble. He first came into notice at Kareena’s wedding reception party.  His handsome looks are already winning him some attention. People are saying that he is hotter than his cousin Ranbeer. Armaan has also assisted Karan Johar and was one of the assistant directors of Kareena Kapoor’s fim ‘ Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’.
