While the Befikre actress Vani Kapoor has not made much headway in her career elsewhere at Yashraj films she continues to be regarded as a potential star.
Yashraj’s head honcho Aditya Chopra who launched Vani in Shuddh Desi Romance as the second lead quickly saw her potential and re-launched her as the lead in the high-profile Parisian romance Befikre which bombed miserably at the boxoffice.
Undeterred, Chopra has now signed Vani in two major forthcoming films.In KaranMalhotra’s dacoit drama Shamshera Vani is paired opposite Ranbir Kapoor and in Siddharth Anand’s untitled action film she is paired opposite Hrithik Roshan and TigerShroff.
Sources say some of the actors in two above films were not too keen about their co-star.But Vani being Yash Raj’s blue-eyed girl is ploughing along in the big-budget projects.
Apparently Vani was also considered for a plum role in Yash Raj’s Thugs Of Hindostanwhich finally went to Fatima Sana Sheikh.
Says a source close to Yash Raj, “Adi Chopra has an eye for talent. He has given the film industry superstars like Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma .If he feels Vani Kapoor has got what it takes then he must have a valid reason to believe so. Woh ussey star banakar hirahenge.”
