Fresh talents are always welcomed in the world of cinema. Two such fresh faces have been discovered by the talent-spotters at Yash Raj Production house. The new YRF actors Aadar Jain, who is Ranbir’s cousin (both grandsons of the late filmmaker and actor Raj Kapoor) and Delhi girl Anya Singh, will be introduced at a special interaction and media event in Mumbai today. Reportedly, actors Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma will introduce the two respectively.
While Aadar had a Godfather before stepping into cinema, Anya, like any other girl, had travelled to Mumbai with a dream to become an actor. She had a year-long stint with the industry auditioning before she could bag Habib Faisal’s film. Yet again, the debut of the two brings back the focus on the insider-outsider debate.
In a statement to a leading daily, the source said, “A lot has already been said about the insider factor in Hindi films. While it’s widely believed that being an ‘insider’ makes getting a break easy, for outsiders, things are always supposed to be tougher. So, who better to present them to the world than the ‘insider’ Ranbir and the ‘outsider’ Anushka?”
Director Karan Johar also took to his Twitter handle to post a picture of Anya, captioning it, “A breath of fresh air and loveliness ….welcome to the movies ANYA SINGH @yrf @Shanoozeing.” A few minutes later, he also posted another photograph of Aadar Jain, and captioned it as, “A talented chip of the legendary block….welcome to the movies AADAR JAIN….shine on!!!!! @yrf @Shanoozeing.
While Aadar hails from a film family, Anya Singh is a typical outsider who has made it in on her own; she says, for most, it is a bumpy ride but she made her’s a joyride. We are soon to see these promising actors Anya and Aadar, who are all set to roll their debut in Bollywood with Habib Faisal’s next.
Aadar is yet to make his big screen debut, but he has is not new to the process of filmmaking. Talking about the same, the source told the leading daily, “A Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute alumnus, Aadar has assisted Farah Khan on Happy New Year (2014) and Karan Johar on Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016). After that, he auditioned for a film by director Habib Faisal, who also launched Arjun Kapoor in Ishaqzaade (2012) alongside Parineeti Chopra.”
