The wait is finally over! Ranveer Singh’s leading lady for Befikre, Aditya Chopra’s comeback directorial, has been finalised. Vaani Kapoor has been confirmed as the heroine of our Bajirao. The actress has shot for a video announcing her deal with Yash Raj Films (YRF), much the same way Ranveer Singh had shot a video in the premises of Yash Raj Studios in Andheri West, Mumbai. Vaani Kapoor had made her debut in YRF’s Shuddh Desi Romance as the ‘other heroine’ opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. She had also starred in the South remake of YRF’s Band Baaja Baaraat that had Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma in the original. The South version was called Aaha Kalyanam and she starred opposite Nani in it. Also Read - Karan Johar is Back on Social Media, Comments on THIS Actor’s Instagram Post
In the video announcing that she is the lead star of Befikre, Vaani, clad in jeans, white top and a checked shirt, speaks of her long wait to act in another Yash Raj project – or any film, for that matter. The pretty Punjabi girl confesses she had thought her Bollywood career would take off really well after Shuddh Desi Romance‘s success, but it didn’t and she really waited for a big opportunity.
