Set for her dream outing, actor <g data-gr-id="58">Vanai</g> Kapoor has bagged the lead role opposite Ranveer Singh in Aditya Chopra’s first directorial venture in seven years, <g data-gr-id="59">Befikre</g>: Those Who Dare to Love.
The movie was announced by Aditya in a special note on father Yash Chopra’s 83rd birth anniversary on September 27. The actor made her Bollywood debut with Shuddh Desi <g data-gr-id="60">Romance</g> but her career did not turn out the way she wanted as <g data-gr-id="56">Befikre</g> happened after a wait of two years. An overw helmed Vaani shared the news with fans through an over two-minute-long video on Twitter.
The actor said after her debut film he had 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. So, I waited and months of waiting turned into a year. People started speculating that if my career failed even before it began. After <g data-gr-id="64">sometime</g>, 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 <g data-gr-id="61">Shanoo</g> and it went for six months,” Vaani said.
