Shraddha Signs Three Films Contract with YRF

One film old, actress Shradha Kapoor, daughter of Shakti Kapoor, started her career with Big B, in Teen Patti, has influenced many directors, including Madhur Bhandarkar and Yash Raj Films. Recently, the actress has signed a three-film contract with Yash Raj Films (YRF).

However, because of her three-film contract with YRF, she lost Madhur’s film, Dil Toh Bacha Hai Jee. Shraddha explained to Madhur that Yash Raj wanted exclusivity and hence it was impossible for her to work with him. A source says,

“Yash Raj has been signing and promoting new faces. After giving a break to Anushka Sharma with Shah Rukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, and launching newcomer Ranvir Singh, Yash Raj has now signed a three-film deal with Shraddha Kapoor. Similar to Anushka’s contract, Shraddha too will be doing films exclusively for the Yash Raj banner till she completes all her three films.”

“Yash Raj called her for a screen test and were impressed with her. Talks were on for a while and the contract was finalised a few days ago; she can’t sign any other film outside the banner till she finishes her three films with Yash Raj. The tentative male leads decided to be cast opposite her are Shahid Kapoor and Ranvir Singh.”
