Bollywood’s beloved film “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani,” featuring Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Aditya Roy Kapur, and Kalki Koechlin, recently marked its decade-long journey. Helmed by director Ayan Mukerji, the movie beautifully captures the essence of friendship, love, and life. Released in 2013, it garnered acclaim for the electrifying chemistry between Ranbir and Deepika, offering a perfect blend of entertainment.
In a candid revelation, Kalki Koechlin, who played the role of Aditi, shared insights about the film. During an interview with Bollywood Hungama, she disclosed that she had received warnings not to take up the project, primarily due to the presence of two prominent lead actors. However, her perspective shifted after meeting director Ayan Mukerji.

Directed by Ayan Mukerji and produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” also featured an ensemble cast, including Farooq Sheikh, Tanvi Azmi, Evelyn Sharma, Poorna Jagannathan, Dolly Ahluwalia, and Rana Daggubati.
