Meanwhile, Ranveer Singh is happy to play the role of Dharam in this rom-com. “It (Befikre) has got nothing to do with the film (No Strings Attached). It is purely an original content written by Aditya Chopra. There is a dearth of original scripts in Indian cinema and I am proud to say this is definitely written from the heart and soul of Adi Chopra,” Ranveer said in an interview with indianexpress.com.
“In Indian cinema, romcom doesn’t stay romcom. By the end of the interval, there is a twist which would decide the flow of the second half. After a while, people will be dealing with heavy emotions and drama. Befikre is true to the genre. Our attempt with this film is to present the true romantic Hindi comedy, which brings freshness,” Ranveer added.
For the first time ‘Befikre’ brings Vaani Kapoor and Ranveer Singh together. It was Vaani’s second film after she debuted in YRF’s ‘Shudh Desi Romance’ three years back. Looking at the long wait, it is concluded that the film is very important for Vaani. Extensively shot in Paris, ‘Befikre’ marks the return of Aditya Chopra after seven long years. He last directed ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ starring Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma.
‘Befikre’ is a story that celebrates being carefree in love. A quintessential Delhi boy Dharam (Ranveer Singh) comes to Paris for work in search of an adventure. Just when he was about to embark on this journey of his life he bumps into a wild, free spirited, French born Indian girl Shyra (Vaani Kapoor). A feisty romance ensues between the two in which both of their personalities- one being an equal match for the other are tested to the limit. Battling their ups and downs, both realize that love is a leap of faith that can only be taken by those who dare to love.
