ADITYA CHOPRA TO LAUNCH RAJ KAPOOR’S GRANDSON
After acting as the launch vehicle for the biggest names of Gen-Y, YRF is all set to introduce yet another fresh face to tinsel town. Kareena and Ranbir Kapoor’s cousin Aadar Jain, who is the younger son of Reema Jain and Manoj Jain is gearing up to appear in a romantic drama being helmed by Habib Faisal who had earlier launched Arjun Kapoor in Ishaqzaade. Along with Aadar, the YRF flick will also have a fresh face in female lead Anya Singh.
YRF casting director Shanoo Sharma had earlier launched Aadar’s elder brother Arman Jain in YRF’s Lekar Hum Deewana Dil. In an interview given to a leading daily, Shanoo said, “In the film industry, people from the biggest film families are rejected whereas a boy from nowhere can become a big star. Aadar did not get Habib’s film because he is Raj Kapoor’s grandson, but because this boy has it in him. It has to be the perfect casting.”
On the other hand, speaking on Anya’s casting process, Shanoo said, “Aditya always pushes me to go out and find new talent. When casting for this film, we were trying to get girls from Delhi, Chandigarh and other cities. Anya was the result of the hunt to find the next Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma. We wanted someone to come out of nowhere, lead regular lives and conquer the industry. Anya filled that spot for me. She came out of nowhere and landed a three-film deal with YRF.”
Well, we wish this young pair all the good luck in the world and we hope Bollywood gets two shining stars in the form of Aadar and Anya.
