It's raining newcomers in Bollywood! After Sajid Nadiadwala's announcement of launching Suniel Shetty's son Ahaan under his banner, get ready to welcome yet another star kid with Bollywood dreams.
If reports are to be believed then Raj Kapoor's grandson Aadar Jain is all set to sashay into Bolly-land with Aditya Chopra's next which will be directed by Ishqzaade director Habib Faisal.
A leading daily quoted casting director Shannoo Sharma as saying, "He was on my radar even then. Rima is a family friend and these kids have grown up before my eyes. I would keep running into Armaan and Aadar at Dharma Productions, while casting for Karan's (Johar) movie. I told Aadar that I wanted to capture him on video just talking. He came across as very charming and incredibly cute. There's a whole different side to him - flirtatious and mischievous - Aadar has Shashi Kapoor's energy about him. I showed the video to Adi who liked him, too, and said we could cast him whenever something suitable was happening."
She also added, "Aadar did not get Habib's film because he is Raj Kapoor's grandson, but because this boy has it in him. He is incredibly watchable, arresting and has that charisma. In the end, no matter what, if Habib Sir didn't believe in the boy, nothing would have made him sign him. It has to be the perfect casting."
Ranbir Kapoor's sister Riddhima congratulated Aadar for his Bollywood debut and wrote on Instagram, "The next super star has arrived!!!! All the best baby bro Aadar Jain love you Rima Jain @aadarjain @rimosky."
Aadar's elder brother Armaan Jain had earlier made his Bollywood debut with Lekar Hum Deewana Dil opposite Deeksha Seth. Unfortunately, the film tanked at the box office.
Will Aadar's charm work this time? Guess we will have to wait and watch!
