In cinema, the in­fu­sion of new blood is al­ways wel­come. Two new faces that are be­ing launched with much fan­fare to­day are Aadar Jain (bot­tom) and Anya Singh. They are be­ing in­tro­duced to the world at a spe­cial in­ter­ac­tion and me­dia event in Mum­bai. The two new­bies were ‘dis­cov­ered’ by the tal­ent-spot­ters of film­maker Aditya Cho­pra’s pro­duc­tion house.

What’s re­ally in­ter­est­ing here, as we’ve learnt, is that Ran­bir Kapoor (be­low) and Anushka Sharma will in­tro­duce Aadar and Anya, re­spec­tively. Aadar is Ran­bir’s cousin, they both be­ing the grand­sons of the leg­endary ac­tor­film­maker Raj Kapoor. Aadar is the younger son of Reema Jain, the sec­ond daugh­ter of Raj Kapoor and sis­ter of Ran­bir’s fa­ther Rishi Kapoor.

An in­sider tells us that Aadar is well pre­pared for Bol­ly­wood. “An alum­nus of the Lee Stras­berg The­atre and Film In­sti­tute, New York, Aadar also as­sisted Farah Khan on [the film] Happy New Year and Karan Jo­har on Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. There­after, he au­di­tioned for a film by Habib Faisal (who also launched Ar­jun Kapoor in Ishaqza­ade along­side Pari­neeti Cho­pra),” says an in­sider.

As for Anya, she is a Delhi girl who has moved to Mum­bai to fol­low her dream of be­com­ing an ac­tor. She had a year-long stint with the film world and act­ing,

ap­pear­ing for au­di­tions, be­fore she bagged Habib Faisal’s film. Ran­bir, Anushka, and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Cho­pra’s pro­duc­tion could not be con­tacted for a com­ment.

It’s note­wor­thy that Aadar and Anya’s de­but brings back the fo­cus on the in­sider­out­sider de­bate in Bol­ly­wood. While Aadar is the con­sum­mate in­sider, Anya is a typ­i­cal out­sider, who has al­ways been con­fi­dent of mak­ing it on her own steam.
