Background & Story:
Befikre is Aditya Chopra's first directorial venture after the 2008 blockbuster movie, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. He announced the film on his father Yash Chopra's 83rd birth anniversary (September 27th, 2015). After the announcement, there were reports that the movie would star Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma. However, it was later revealed that Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor will be seen as lovers in Befikre.
Vaani Kapoor was last seen in the 2013 film, Shuddh Desi Romance, which was also produced by Yash Raj Films. As of now, there are no details about the supporting cast of Befikre. The release date of the film is December 9th, 2016, and the shoot was recently wrapped up in Paris. It seems that the entire film is shot in the capital of France, and hence, the filming took around four months to complete.
The movie's release date also marks the first birthday of Aditya Chopra and Rani Mukerji's daughter, Adira. Since the past few months, the makers of the film have been releasing posters which feature Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor. You can have a look at some of them below.
Going by the posters, Befikre looks like a modern age love story. The lead actor, Ranveer Singh, had to train hard for the role. He worked out with his personal trainer, Lloyd Stevens, even after shooting for hours. Singh, also had to give up some of his favourite food items, one of which was Nutella.
