Video: Vaani Kapoor to romance Ranveer Singh in ‘Befikre’

Dream finally comes true for the ‘Shudh Desi Romance’ actress Vaani Kapoor. She has bagged a meaty role opposite Bollywood heartthrob Ranveer Singh in YRF’s ‘Befikre’. Aditya Chopra returns to direction after seven years with “Befikre: Those Who Dare to Love”. He announced the film on his father Yash Chopra’s 83rd birth anniversary on September 27.

Speaking about Vaani, her association with Yash Raj banner is not new. She in fact debuted with YRF’s ‘Shudh Desi Romance’ with Sushant Singh Rajput and over these years waited for next golden opportunity.

Just like Ranveer, Vaani shared the news with fans through an over two-minute-long video on Twitter.

The actor said after her debut film she received few promising newcomer awards and hoped that she would be flooded with offers but “things did not really fall into place” for her.

“But at that time Adi met me and shared undoubting faith in my potential. He asked me if I had faith in myself then I should wait,” she said in a video.

“So, I waited and months of waiting turned into a year.

People started speculating that if my career failed even before it began. After sometime, Adi called me again and said ‘I am penning down a script, which will be directed by someone else and I want you to workshop for it.’ So after one year of wait, I was put onto this intensive round of auditions with Shanoo and it went for six months,” Vaani said.

“I had no idea whether to start jumping around there or break down crying or keep myself composed. It has still not sunk in.”

The actor urged people to believe in their dreams and never give up.

“I am glad that my faith in myself and Adi, and his faith backing me up got me my dream. For all those, who ever think of giving up and give in what others have to say, I would say hold onto your dream and watch it come alive, just like mine.

All I need is your love, support and prayers so that I can work hard and fulfil this dream,” she signed off.
