Yash Raj Films is launching Aadar Jain, grandson of late actor-filmmaker Raj Kapoor, in a film which also features another debutante, Anya Singh
"When Aadar called and told me that he bagged the film, I felt a lot of pride and gratefulness. But at the same time, I was a little nervous, not knowing how this boy will be accepted. It is a funny industry," Rambir Kapoor told reporters at the event
Ranbir Kapoor's cousin, Aadar Jain, is set to make his film debut and the 'Jagga Jasoos' actor said he is aware that the youngster will have to face questions about nepotism
Anushka Sharma introduced Anya Singh and said she can relate with her journey because both of them come from non-filmy families
Anya Singh said she wants to work with actor Ranveer Singh. "When I saw 'Band Baaja Baarat', I became his fan. I find him very relatable."
Anushka Sharma added, "Ranveer met her backstage now and called her 'beta'. And I was like 'did you just say beta'?"

Ranbir Kapoor said he would advice both of them to be honest with their work. "I want to tell both the kids that the odds are the same. There are no shortcuts, no formulas, there are highs and lows and lots of sacrifices. You've to give a lot to be accepted and be honest to your craft. It's about how you play the game."
