In a first of its kind promotional strategy, actors Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor are set to unveil the trailer of their upcoming romantic-comedy “Befikre” at Eiffel Tower, later in the evening, and the duo says the feeling is out of this world.
Besides the unique trailer launch, “Befikre” is also special for Ranveer as it is directed by his mentor Aditya Chopra. The 31-year-old actor says he is living a dream.
“Wow, this actually feels quite surreal. I am having the launch of my film’s trailer at the Eiffel tower, and this is an Aditya Chopra film!
“I can hardly believe what’s going on. Again it’s like some other instances in my life when I can hardly believe what’s happening to me. That’s why my Twitter bio says that I am living the dream,” Ranveer told reporters here.
Life has come to a full circle for the “Bajirao Mastani” star as he was launched by Aditya’s production house Yash Raj Films in 2010 with “Baand Baaja Baaraat”. The actor later went to star in a couple of YRF movies like “Ladies v Ricky Bahl” and “Kill Dil”.
Vaani, who was also launched by the Yash Raj banner, has got the chance of working under Aditya’s direction in her second film itself.
Talking about the trailer launch, the 28-year-old actress said, “I am nervous, I am jittery, I am excited and I can’t wait for the evening to begin. I don’t think else can beat this feeling that I have right now. And it truly is the most historic thing in my life.”
“Befikre” is Aditya’s first directorial venture after his 2008 love story “Rab Ne Bana Do Jodi”. This is also the first time he has directed any other actor in the lead than superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
The movie has been extensively shot in the beautiful locations of the city of romance.
The Mayor of Paris will be present at the trailer launch, which will happen at the banquet located on the first floor of the iconic monument.
The lead pair, who landed in the city yesterday, has been busy with the preparations for the evening. “Befikre” will hit Indian theatres on December 9.
