Befikre to premiere at the Dubai International Film Festival
The brand-new Hindi romantic comedy will be the red carpet gala of the festival’s celebrations on Thursday, Dec 8, 2016.
Shot entirely in Paris, Befikre is a progressive, fresh interpretation of love as viewed in the 21st century.
‘Befikre’ meaning carefree in English is a free spirited, contemporary love story of Dharam (Ranveer Singh) and Shyra (Vaani Kapoor), who find love in an impulsive, engaging series of experiences.
Abdulhamid Juma, DIFF Chairman said, “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.”
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 and as always, we continue to tell stories that reflect the times we live in. We thank DIFF for their support and wish everyone a great festival.”
This is the fourth film from Yash Raj Films to showcase at DIFF after ‘Kabul Express’, ‘Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year’ and ‘Ladies vs Ricky Bahl’.
