After Karisma Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor, Armaan Jain, another Kapoor grandson Aadar Jain is ready to join the film industry. Aadar Jain is the younger son of Reema jain and Manoj jain. Reema jain is the daughter of Raj Kapoor. He is the cousin of bollywood stars Kareena, Karisma and Ranbir Kapoor.
Yash Raj Films is launching Aadar opposite a Delhi girl debutante, Anya Singh. The film will be directed by Habib Faisal, who launched Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra in his 2012 movie “Ishaqzaade”.
Ranbir Kapoor, who is on a promotional spree with Katrina Kaif for their film ‘Jagga Jasoos,’ managed to take some time out to introduce new talent of YRF, his cousin Aadar Jain.
At a special event today, Aadar and Anya were introduced by Ranbir and Anushka Sharma.
While Aadar was engaged in his first ever interaction with the media on Wednesday, Ranbir stood rock-solid besides him, like any other brother, and kept guiding him with the dos and don’ts to stay cordial with the media.
The proud brother, while introducing a-bit-nervous Aadar to the media said, “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.”
“Yes, the platform that he has will spark a debate about insiders vs outsiders, nepotism and all of that. But I am going to keep that aside for now. Eventually we will talk about it, he will have to face it.”
“I guess everyone has to make their own journey. Whatever I tell Aadar, I tell him the dos and don’t, it doesn’t matter. Till he doesn’t fall himself, he wouldn’t be able to rise. Until he sees his first success himself, he won’t be able to take pride. I don’t like to give any advice. We are in such an industry where it has to be your decision, your gut feeling, and everything,” said Ranbir.
Aadar previously assisted filmmaker Karan Johar in his last release, “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”. Ranbir, who starred in the film, shared a few anecdotes about working with his cousin on the sets of “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”. “I used to ask Aadar to say Aishwarya’s lines while I got ready for my sequences. I used to make him enact Aishwarya’s scenes too.”
Anushka introduced Anya and said she can relate with her journey because both of them come from non-filmy families.
Anya 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 added, “Ranveer met her backstage now and called her ‘beta’. And I was like ‘did you just say beta’?”
Ranbir 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.”
