Vaani Kapoor has been roped in as the female lead opposite Ranveer Singh in the much anticipated love story, which Aditya Chopra considers his riskiest film. Initially, there were reports that Anushka Sharma was being paired with Ranveer in the film; however, Vaani made it clear that she was Aditya Chopra's first choice for the film.

After directing Shah Rukh Khan in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Mohabbatein and Rab Ne Banadi Jodi, Befikre will be Aditya Chopra's first film without King Khan. While DDLJ established Shah Rukh Khan as the king of romance in Bollywood and Kajol got wide public recognition post the film, only time shall tell us if Aditya Chopra can repeat history with Befikre.
