While the industry is busy welcoming Suniel Shetty's son Aahan Shetty to Bollywood starting with Salman Khan and followed by Karan Johar, Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan etc. This news of another Kapoor grandson – Aadar Jain to be launched by Aditya Chopra makes 2017 an exciting year for newcomers.


Ranbir Kapoor's cousin and son of Rima and Manoj Jain, Aadar is set to make his debut in Habib Faisal's next to be produced by Aditya Chopra under YRF banner.

Said to be on the lines of Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra starrer ISHAQZAADE, the untitled film will also be based on the hinterland and is likely to introduce another new female face.

Speculations of Aadar to make a debut as an actor started circulating after brother Armaan Jain made an unsuccessful debut with the pathetic LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL produced under Saif Ali Khan's banner Illuminati films and directed by Arif Ali.

Like Ranbir Kapoor, Aadar also shares some experience behind the camera as an assistant. Adar was the first AD on the sets of Karan Johar's AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL and is a graduate from Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in America.

Interestingly, casting director Shanoo Sharma, who selected Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra for ISHAQZAADE spotted Aadar and reportedly shot a video in which Aadar was made to just talk. The video impressed Aditya Chopra and the rest will be history in the making.

We have also heard that apart from some experience behind the camera, Aadar shares a good similarity with Ranbir Kapoor. Ranbir Kapoor's resemblance to Shammi Kapoor in energy, dance moves plus the charisma is now well known, it is said that Aadar has traits of Shashi Kapoor.
