Dil Bole Hadippa - touted to be Rani's comeback vehicle after a string of flops - has her cast opposite Shahid Kapur. And while the two have a visible age difference, Rani doesn't think so. Speaking to the press, the Bunty aur Babli actress said that when she and Shahid looked at the monitors on the first day of shooting, they couldn't believe their eyes, as they looked great together.
She added that producer Aditya Chopra must be confident that they would look good together. Dil Bole Hadippa releases on September 18.
Rani also revealed a little known fact: Dil Bole Hadippa is not the first time the two have worked together. The two had worked together on a Pepsi commercial several years ago, which also featured Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, and Shahid Kapur was working as a model at that time. Rani revealed that Shahid used to look at her in awe and kept watching her.
Another nugget about Shahid's career as a model/dancer has also emerged recently: the Kaminey star was a background dancer in a sequence with Karisma Kapoor in Dil To Pagal Hai, the hit film which also starred Shah Rukh Khan and Madhuri Dixit. Shahid revealed this to Farah Khan when appearing on her new talk show, Tere Mere Beech Mein, where he also confessed that the reason he never felt despondent about his flop films when he was starting out was because of the encouragement of then-girlfriend Kareena Kapoor, who had become his "support system." But with the success of Kaminey and the praise being lavished on Shahid, we bet he doesn't miss his support system anymore…
