Trust Yash Raj Films to take making official announcements to the next level.
Aditya Chopra, Yash Raj’s head honcho, is a quiet man, with very rare public appearances. The last we heard, he was working on his next film titled Befikre and was compulsively searching for a suitable cast.
Chopra calls this film his “happiest, youngest and riskiest” one to date, and had been planning to make an announcement on the cast on Tuesday morning.
So here it is: Ranveer Singh will play the male lead in Befikre.
In a candid, emotional video uploaded on YRF’s youtube channel, Ranveer revealed this news, taking us all down memory lane.
The three minute video shot on the fourth floor of Yash Raj Films in Andheri, Mumbai, has Singh revealing that no less than five years ago he was at the same place, having been offered the biggest role of his life (his debut role in Band Baaja Baraat).
Sporting his Bajirao Mastani look, a nostalgic Ranveer tells us how, five years later, Aditya Chopra himself came out of his office to find Ranveer crying in happiness on being cast in Befikre, only to tell him, “Tu kar lega (you’ll do it)”
