Yash Raj Films introduced two new actors Aadar and Anya in their fold at an event in Mumbai — and they were introduced by Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma!
Ranbir Kapoor welcomed his cousin Aadar Jain — Aadar is Rishi Kapoor’s sister Rima’s son — and gave everyone an interesting insight into him. Anushka introduced Anya, and asked her just what it felt like to be launched by Aditya Chopra. Both will be seen in a film directed by Habib Faisal.
Anushka Sharma said she could relate with Anya, as they both come from a non-filmi background.
Anya’s parents perceived Bollywood as the Big Bad World and gave her a deadline of one year to try her hand at the film industry. If she did not succeed, she would have been packed off abroad to pursue further studies.
On the other hand, Aadar belongs to Bollywood’s Kapoor family. He is the son of Rima and Manoj Jain.
Anya wants to work with Ranveer Singh! She said “When I saw Band Baaja Baarat, I became his fan. I find him very relatable”.
Ranbir says “When Aadar told me he bagged the film, I felt a lot of pride and gratefulness. At the same time, I was nervous, not knowing how this boy will be accepted. It is a funny industry. Yes, the privilege that he comes from, the platform that he has, will spark a debate about the insider-outsider, nepotism and all of that. I am going to keep that aside for now. Eventually, we will talk about it and he will have to face it.”
