Actress Vaani Kapoor, who hogged the limelight with Shuddh Desi Romance, is now foraying into South Indian film industry with the movie Aaha Kalyanam, which is the Telugu and Tamil remake of Yash Raj films' Band Baaja Baaraat. The 25-year-old actress hopes that the film gets an equally good response.
Aaha Kalyanam is romantic comedy film starring actor Nani in the lead role. Vaani Kapoor is reprising the role of a wedding planner played by Anushka Sharma in the original. Talking about the bilingual film, Vaani says, "I hope people accept it, watch it and give it as much love as they did to Band Baaja Baaraat. We have put in a lot of hard work and efforts in it."
Directed by A Gokul Krishna, Aaha Kalyanam is Yash Raj Films' (YRF) first South production. Vaani Kapoor is not planning to extend her stint in the South industry. The actress says, "I have my south film with Yash Raj, their first production down South Aaha Kalyanam. It releases on Feb 21 and I am going to Chennai and Hyderabad to promote it. Right now in South, it's just Aaha Kalyanam and then back in Bollywood."
After the success of Shuddh Desi Romance, Vaani Kapoor, who recently signed a deal to endorse Lux range of body wash Products, has been flooded with several new offers. But she is yet to announce her next project in Bollywood.
