Aditya Chopra’s Befikre releases on December 9. Ahead of its release H.E. Mr Alexandre Ziegler, Ambassador of France to India with Yash Raj Films hosted a very special soirée to celebrate the spirit of the film with Sanya Dhir, Creative Director-DIVA’NI, in New Delhi yesterday. Present on the occasion were the leading pair of Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor.
The Residence of the Ambassador of France came alive as the vibrant evening saw Ranveer and Vaani giving a scintillating performance to the film’s song, Khulke Dulke. The duo, dressed in exquisitely designed DIVA’NI couture, also walked the ramp for the dazzling launch of The Ivory Kiss, Spring-Summer 2017 couture collection of DIVA’NI, which designed the actors’ costumes for the film.
Talking on the film, Ziegler said, “I’m thrilled to host a soirée to celebrate Befikre in the presence of talented stars, Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor, and congratulate them warmly for their performance. Befikre makes the most of the stunning locales oﬀered by France, highlighting why, year after year, it’s the world’s top tourist destination as well as a favourite for romantic holidays and film shoots. I’m delighted that Befikre was shot almost entirely in France and availed of the French Film Commission’s excellent incentives. I wish to extend invitation to Indian film makers to come and shoot their films in France.”
Added Dhir, “It’s surreal how things just come together and make perfect sense. The inspiration came through while we were in Paris shooting for Befikre. The architecture, the mosaic floors, the fish scaled ceilings if on one hand formed the core of the artworks. The international runway set the mood for these silhouettes. We wanted to bring in the opulence, our love for Paris, the rooted Indian craftsmanship sprinkled with carefree joys of love and life. This collection is for the young at heart, bold in mind and for the ones who know how to live life carefree!”
