Befikre is extensively shot in Paris as well as in Cannes and Picardie. It is steeped in the Parisian spirit of romance and celebrates sensual, carefree love. Under the vision of Aditya Chopra, famous for his landmark romantic movies, Paris becomes synonymous with Befikre’s contemporary love story, and plays the role of a third character.
It may be noted that France won the Best Aesthetic Location Award at the Indywood International Business Film Awards. Befikre – which is entirely shot in France – marks the future trend for France as an increasingly favourite Bollywood location in the future.
Set in Paris, Befikre 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. Doused in the spirit of Paris, it celebrates love- sensual, carefree and focused on living life to the fullest.
On the glittering evening of September 27th 2013, Diva’ni was born. An inspired dedication to Yash Raj’s legendary love for God’s most beautiful creation, and a brilliant tribute to the Diva in every woman and her nine expressions. It is no coincidence that Diva’ni was born on the birthday of legendary film maker Yash Chopra.
