New Delhi, Nov 1 (IANS) Yash Raj Films' (YRF) upcoming project 'Band Baaja Baaraat' has not been funded by debutant Ranveer Singh's businessman father, says the spokesperson of the production house.
'Band Baaja Baaraat' has not been funded by debutant Ranveer Singh's father. He was chosen at an audition where he excelled and was therefore selected,' Rafiq Gangjee, vice president (marketing & communications), YRF, said in a press statement.
A report in a daily indicated that Ranveer's father invested in the Rs.10-crore film, and that no talent-hunting procedure was organised to find out the male lead.
YRF has denied it all.
'For a Studio like Yash Raj Films, which is spearheaded by a much respected doyen of the film industry, Yash Chopra, we do not need to stoop to this and nor do we select our cast based on them funding us,' added Gangjee.
Releasing Dec 10, 'Band Baaja Baaraat' also features Anushka Sharma. It is about two young people - Shruti and Bittoo - who are just out of Delhi University and get together to start a business venture as wedding planners.
The film is directed by Maneesh Sharma, who assisted Aditya Chopra as an associate director on 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi'.
