Vaani Kapoor, who made her Bollywood debut with Shuddh Desi Romance in 2013 is now all set for her next Bollywood outing. The actress has been roped in to star opposite Hrithik Roshan in Yash Raj Films’ upcoming action entertainer. The film will be directed by Siddharth Anand. Apart from Vaani and Hrithik, the film will also feature Tiger Shroff. On the occasion of legendary filmmaker Yash Chopra’s 85th birth anniversary, the makers announced the project.
This is the first time the Befikre actress will share the screen space with Hrithik. She has earlier worked with actors like Sushant Singh Rajput and Ranveer Singh.
Confirming the news of Vaani being a part of the yet-to-be-titled project, in a statement released by the production banner Yash Raj Films, Siddharth was quoted as saying:
While the film is primarily Hrithik vs Tiger, there is only one girl in the movie who is opposite Hrithik. I was looking for young and fresh energy in the casting and I have found that in Vaani Kapoor.
Further praising the actress and her films, the director said that Vaani is the perfect choice for his film. He said:
I have loved Vaani as an actor in both her films and after meeting her I was fully convinced that she is the best girl for my film,” Siddharth said in a statement.
The film is slated to release on January 25, 2019. On the work front, Vaani was last seen in Aditya Chopra’s Befikre.
