The chocolate boy Ranbir Kapoor and the exquisite Shraddha Kapoor reached the national capital, Delhi a few days ago to kick-start shooting for Luv Ranjan’s next and much-awaited romantic comedy. This film would mark the duo’s first project together and the fans are already so excited. Well, it was recently revealed that veteran actress Dimple Kapadia and filmmaker Boney Kapoor have been roped in to play Ranbir’s on-screen parents. We cant even overlook the fact that how adorable on-screen family they would be.
As per the sources, Boney was the reference point for Ranbir’s on-screen father and makers wanted to cast someone like him. When the filmmaker approached him, he declined the offer as he already had his hands full with other upcoming projects. Talking about the same, Boney told in an interview that “When Luv and his team were writing the script, they had a simple reference point for the character of Ranbir’s father — ‘somebody like Boney Kapoor’. One fine day, they thought, why not have Boney play the role?” Further to let know the readers that Boney Kapoor made his acting debut this year with brother Anil Kapoor’s AK vs AK.
So what made Boney Kapoor change his mind? The answer is the persuasion of his son i.e. Arjun Kapoor. He shared, “Luv insisted I do the role. He reached out to Arjun, who persuaded me for it. While the team will be shooting at a stretch in Delhi, they have given me the liberty to fly down to Mumbai and attend to my productions.”
We are sure he is gonna mesmerize the audience with his acting skills and would do wonders as an actor, just like his late wife Sridevi, daughter Janhvi and son Arjun!
