Yash Raj Films’ BEFIKRE starring Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor will have its world premiere at the 13th edition of the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF). The new-age romantic comedy will be the Red Carpet gala of the Festival’s celebrations on December 8, 2016.
After KABUL EXPRESS, ROCKET SINGH: SALESMAN OF THE YEAR and LADIES VS RICKY BAHL, BEFIKRE is the fourth film from Yash Raj Films to be showcased at DIFF.
BEFIKRE is a story of casual relationship between Dharma (Ranveer Singh) and Shyra (Vaani Kapoor) who vows to never fall in love no matter what. Shot entirely in Paris, this no-strings-attached love story will hit the Indian theatres on December 9, 2016.
DIFF Chairman Abdulhamid Juma informed “The World Premiere of the eagerly anticipated BEFIKRE from Yash Raj Films and directed by the incredibly talented Aditya Chopra following a hiatus of seven years is a major scoop for DIFF. This refreshing new film will appeal not just to the expatriate community but also to Arabs who have a strong affinity for Bollywood films.”
Nelson D’Souza, Head of Operations of Yash Raj Films, shared “Yash Raj Films and DIFF have a long history and we’re privileged and honored to have been a part of this remarkable journey.
We’re delighted that the Festival has selected BEFIKRE as it is a film very close to our hearts and as always, we continue to tell stories that reflect the times we live in. We thank DIFF for their support and wish everyone a great festival.”
