Set for her dream outing, actress Vanai Kapoor has bagged the lead role opposite Ranveer Singh in Aditya Chopra's first directorial venture in seven years, 'Befikre: Those Who Dare to Love'.
The movie was announced by Aditya in a special note on father Yash Chopra's 83rd birth anniversary on September 27.
The 27-year-old actress made her Bollywood debut with 2013 YRF film 'Shuddh Desi Romance' but her career did not turn out the way she wanted it to, as 'Befikre' happened after a wait of two years.
An overwhelmed Vaani shared the news with fans through an over two-minute-long video on Twitter.
The actress said after her debut film he had hoped that she would be flooded with offers but "things did not really fall into place" for her.
"But at that time Adi met me and shared undoubting faith in my potential. He asked me if I had faith in myself then I should wait," she said in a video.
"So, I waited and months of waiting turned into a year. After sometime, Adi called me again and said 'I am penning a script, which will be directed by someone else and I want you to workshop for it'.
