Like most girls out there, Riya Vij (who plays the lead role in Gippi) is a huge Ranbir Kapoor fan, and had asked her director Sonam Nair to introduce her to Ranbir. Sonam, of course, knew Ranbir since she was the assistant director of Wake Up Sid, and therefore made sure that she arranged for Riya to meet him. She did, and couldn’t stop gushing – here’s what Riya had to say about Ranbir!
“I’d told Sonam I wanted to meet Ranbir and she arranged it while he was shooting in Mumbai. I took pictures with him. It’s a photo I am never going to delete from my phone! I have the biggest crush on him and he is the cutest guy in the whole wide world. Even my mom and grandma think so. I told him that I saw Barfi thrice in the theatres and he has promised to watch Gippi three times! All my friends are so jealous that I’ve met him. I was so excited when I heard I’d be shooting with Ranbir for the promotion of the movie that I had knots in my stomach. I fell in love with him all over again when I met him.”
Ah, nothing like young, fangirly love :)
