"Knowing Ranveer's sentiments towards his guide and mentor, Aditya Chopra, he might not have thought it appropriate to broach the topic with him," says a source.
'Befikre' will be the second Hindi film for Vaani, two years after she made her Bollywood debut opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in 'Shuddh Desi Romance' (2013).
Since there was a great deal of speculation over the female lead and names leading actress were tossed around, Ranveer was apparently optimistic about a pataka pairing. "But when the announcement came, Ranveer was not too sure. However, since he trusts Aditya's judgment, he chose to go along with his decision," the source adds.
Ranveer Singh remained unavailable for comment.
