As most of you are aware  Aditya Chopra announced that he will be starting a new movie as a director on his father Yash Raj Chopra’s birthday.

This would be the first time Aditya will direct a film in seven years and without superstar-friend Shah Rukh Khan, the leading star of his directorial previous ventures– “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayeinge”, “Mohabbatein” and “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi”.

But the casting choice can be explained by filmmaker’s description of “Befikre” as his “youngest and riskiest” movie ever.

Ranveer, a protege of YRF films, first made his YRF debut when Aditya selected him for the film “Band Baaja Baarat”.

Ranveer shared his exciting news to his fans on Twitter.

“This is a really special video. This is the fourth floor at Yash Raj studio. It is the place where Yash ji used to sit and Aditya sits and essentially this is where I started my journey as an actor,” the 30-year-old actor said.

The female lead is yet to be announced by Yash Raj Films.
