Yash Raj Films & Aditya  Chopra Just Won’t Give Up On Vaani Kapoor



Vaani Kapoor

Aditya  Chopra  is  fully convinced that his  protégée Vaani Kapoor is star material. Over the years he has showcased her  ostensible talent since 2013  in Shuddh Desi Romance, Befikre, War  and  Shameshera . She is  now  part of a webseries  being produced  by  Aditya Chopra.

It’s a crime thriller titled Mandala Murders.  Created and directed by Gopi Puthran  who  directed  producer Aditya Chopra’s wife Rani Mukerji in Mardaani 2.

 The  crime thriller  will star Vaani Kapoor in  the lead, with the  talented  Vaibhav Raj Gupta (of the hugely acclaimed show Gullak fame) co-starring. He has been cast as the leading man for the first time after his brilliant performance in Gullak!

 Manan Rawat, who has previously worked as an Associate Director on many YRF films, will be the co-director of the series.

Gopi will shoot Mandala Murders for about a month in Uttar Pradesh starting tomorrow, before heading to Delhi  and  then Mumbai to finish the filming process. In UP, the team will shoot in Prayagraj, Lucknow & Varanasi. The big budget show will thus boast of a huge canvass and a grand scale with it being shot across five different cities of India.

Surveen Chawla and Jameel Khan (again of Gullak fame) have also been cast in prominent roles in Mandala Murders.This multi-season show is a part of YRF’s ambitious OTT slate that already comprises the much-awaited The Railway Men based on the deadly 1984 Bhopal Gas Tragedy. This series features R Madhavan, Kay Kay Menon, Divyendu and Babil Khan in the lead roles and is a tribute to the brave railway workers who saved scores of lives at this ill-fated night of devastation and horror.
