Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor starrer 'Befikre' will be premiered at the 13th edition of the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) on December 8. The DIFF Chairman revealed that the refreshing film will attract both Arabs and expatriate community.
Shot entirely in Paris, 'Befikre' is a progressive, fresh interpretation of love as viewed in the 21st century. 'Befikre', which means carefree in English is a free spirited, contemporary love story of Dharam (Ranveer) and Shyra (Vaani), who find love in an impulsive, engaging series of experiences.
"The World Premiere of the eagerly anticipated 'Befikre' from Yash Raj Films and directed by the incredibly talented Aditya Chopra following a hiatus of seven years is a major scoop for DIFF. This refreshing new film will appeal not just to the expatriate community but also to Arabs who have a strong affinity for Bollywood films," Abdulhamid Juma, DIFF Chairman said in a statement.
Nelson D'souza, Yash Raj Films, Head of Operations - Mena said: "Yash Raj Films and DIFF have a long history and we're privileged and honored to have been a part of this remarkable journey with DIFF from the beginning. We're delighted that the Festival has selected Befikre as it is a film very close to our hearts..."
DIFF has already showcased YRF films like 'Kabul Express', 'Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year' and 'Ladies vs Ricky Bahl'.
The festival runs from December 7-14.
