After launching Anushka Sharma and Parineeti Chopra, Yash Raj Films is all set to project a new face. And just like her predecessors, model Vaani Kapoor has landed a three-film deal with Aditya Chopra’s banner.
Sources say Vaani has been cast in Maneesh Sharma’s Shudhh Desi Romance, co-starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Parineeti.
An insider says, “Just like Anushka, the Delhi-based Vaani too has been a model and has done many brand endorsements. She was spotted by YRF officials during an event in the capital. She met Adi about a year back and the filmmaker was extremely impressed by her. He asked his casting team to immediately audition her and she was signed on for the film.”
The source says that Vaani has been made to sign a contract with the production house to not make any public appearances before formally introducing her to the media.
Apparently, during the shoot of the film, her real name was kept under wraps to prevent outsiders from identifying her. “She was addressed by her screen name on the sets. YRF is considering her for their big-ticket projects and who knows she might even do a film directed by Aditya Chopra himself,” states the source.
