Yash Raj Films had yesterday told us that today they're going to make some announcement about Aditya Chopra's upcoming film BEFIKRE which Aditya had announced on his father, Late Yash Chopra's birthday. And today, finally they've disclosed the lead actor of the film which is going to be none other than Ranveer Singh!
The announcement was made by sharing a video in which Ranveer is walking on the fourth floor of Yash Raj Studios where Yashji used to sit and where Aditya sits. He shared his experience and his reaction after he was told that he would be a part of BEFIKRE and it took him back in time when he had first gone there for the audition of his debut film BAND BAAJA BAARAAT.
Calling the video a very special one, Ranveer showed us exactly where he started his journey from, as an actor, about five years ago. He said, “I was a struggling actor and it was my dream to be in the movies and I gave this audition for the next lead boy in the Yash Raj movies.”
Pointing towards Aditya's office, he added, “After many auditions, I was called into this office where Adi sir sits. He sat me across the couch and he gave me the news that I was selected to be the lead in a Yash Raj movie. I sat across the couch and showed no emotion and was just nodding. I was very sincerely listening to what he was saying.”
Then walking through the corridor he continued with the narration of his experience. He said, “I stepped out of his room and was walking through this corridor and about here is where it kind of donned on me. What had just happened- my dream had been realized and the news was so overwhelming that I went down on my knees and realized what had just happened and I started crying.”
He continued, “Adi sir emerged from here (pointing at the corridor at the back) and saw me crying. He put his hand on my shoulder and said, ‘Tu kar lega'. And now, five years later, I've had a little bit of a journey as an actor and it has been absolutely wonderful. After starting work, it has always been one of my dreams to be in Adi sir's film to be directed by my mentor, something that would be truly special to me.”
Further telling us about the same incident that took place after five years, he said, “And five years down the line, I go to the same office, he sits me across the couch and he tells me, ‘Ranveer I'm casting you in my next movie'. And the same thing happened- I showed no emotion, I'm nodding very sincerely and I walked out of his office and walk through the same corridor and again I realize that my dream of working with Adi sir is going to be realized and the news was too overwhelming. I didn't show any emotion in front of him, but again I started crying in this corridor. And again, he comes from behind, sees me crying, puts his arm across my shoulder and says, ‘‘Tu kar lega'.”
Calling this film a very special one, he said, “This is something that is a really big deal for me, something that is very close to my heart. Adi sir is such a great filmmakers and he could have had whoever he wanted but he chose me. That's means a lot to me and it's really special so wanted to share it with you guys.”
We would wait for the announcement of the lead actor actress who would star opposite Ranveer now. Any guesses?
