Ranveer Singh gives Vaani Kapoor her biggest hit ever with Befikre

Befikre released on December 12 and opened to great numbers. Since last year, December has been very kind to Ranveer Singh with Bajirao Mastani managing to go past Shah Rukh Khan‘s Dilwale. This year too, Befikre has done good business at the box office. It may not be his biggest hit but it definitely helped Vaani Kapoor get her biggest hit. Yes, by earning Rs. 48.75 crore so far, Vaani just got her highest grosser in Befikre. (Also read: Ranveer Singh’s Befikre beats the first week collections of Kapoor & Sons and Udta Punjab)

Vaani is all of two films old if you don’t consider her foray into Telugu cinema with the remake of Band Bajaa Baraat. Her debut was Shuddh Desi Romance with Sushant Singh Rajput which did brisk business at the box office. She earned a lot of applause for her performance in a film which already had a powerful actress like Parineeti Chopra. The film had made a total collection of Rs. 46.60 crore. Vaani played a girl Sushant falls for after he breaks up with Chopra. She looked really pretty in the film. Critics even raved her performance in the film. Her chemistry with Sushant was pretty neat and we hope to see them together in a film in future.

Befikre was a really important film for Vaani as she had a lot to prove. She had to make a place for herself in the industry and Ranveer Singh’s this film really helped. When we spoke to our trade expert Akshaye Rathi before the release of the film as to how significant this film was for her, he had emphasised that it will decide her fate in the industry. “Her first film of course was Shuddh Desi Romance and then Aha Kalyanam, which is the Tamil version of Band Bajaa Baraat. Both of them did fairly okay but the two films weren’t resting on her shoulders. Ahan… was of course a regional film and all of that. Shuddh Desi Romance had Parineeti Chopra in the lead. If you talk about Vaani’s proper heroine mainstream launch, Befikre will be her film,” explained Rathi.

Thankfully for her, Befikre has done impressive business which will only help her career. Now we would like to know what the lady is doing next.
