It’s now learnt from very reliable sources that Vaani Kapoor plays a girl born and brought up in Paris. Ranveer Singh is a dude from Delhi who on a visit to Paris falls head over heels in love with the Parisian-Indian girl.
Says the source, “Adi (director Aditya Chopra) wrote this script as homage to his own marriage. Rani and Adi love Paris more than any city in the world. Ranveer was director Adi’s first and last choice to play the dilli ka chokra Dharam. For the role of Kyra, Adi was extremely keen to cast Vaani Kapoor who he feels has tremendous potential. He made her learn French with a French tutor from scratch and made sure she sounded like a half-French girl.”
