The Kapoor Khandan is a well-established B-Town family who have made their place in the hearts of the masses. After giving the millennials a great number of artists like Kareena Kapoor, Karishma Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor, another grandchild of Raj Kapoor is ready to make an entry into the Bollywood industry.
Aadar Jain is the son of Reema Jain, who is the daughter of the legendary actor Raj Kapoor. Aadar Jain is going to be launched by none other than Aditya Chopra. First introduced to Adi on the sets of Karan Johar’s movie, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Jain is an alumnus of the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.
Aadar will be formally launched into the industry as an article today by his cousin Ranbir Kapoor and actress Anushka Sharma. He will be working in YRF’s latest romantic drama project which will be directed by Habib Faisal. There will be another fresh face that will be launched alongside Aadar, named Anya Singh.
When asked about the movie, here’s what YRF’s casting director Sahnoo Sharma had to say, “Habib’s film happened by chance. Aadar was busy assisting on ADHM. After that, he was thinking about what to do next when I asked him to audition for the film. I love casting for Mr. Habib as he makes it your most difficult job. I get to learn so much from him. We had tested a lot of newcomers for this part and then I brought it up again with Adi. Aadar was not fully trained, but Habib Sir liked him and he got the film.”
When asked about nepotism in the film industry, here what Shanoo had to say. “In the film industry, people from the biggest film families are rejected whereas a boy from nowhere can become a big star. Aadar did not get Habib's film because he is Raj Kapoor's grandson, but because this boy has it in him. It has to be the perfect casting.”
We are super excited to see what Aadar has to offer to the Bollywood industry and we wish him all the very best!
