• When 'Gippi' met Ranbir Kapoor

    7th May 2013

    Bollywood could very well script a story on Riya Vij; a kid who simply accompanied her friend from Delhi to Mumbai for an audition and lucked out with scoring a role instead and that too a lead in Karan Johar's home production.

    KJo's name sure comes with a lot of perks, as the filmmaker has the power to rope in big stars to play a cameo and help out with his movie promotions even when the stars are not directly associated to the project.

    So Riya aka 'Gippi' couldn't have dreamed for more when her request to her director came true in the form of Ranbir Kapoor.

    The young star had shared her dream with director Sonam Nair to meet Ranbir and little did she know that her request would see the light of day so soon.

    Sonam organized a meet and greet with Ranbir exclusively for Riya when the actor was shooting in Mumbai. Riya sure was on seventh heaven on meeting her dream star and she ensured she treasured the moment by taking tons of pictures with him.

    "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," she said.

    Life only gets better for Riya as Karan is going full throttle with the movie promotions as he is roping in Ranbir, Arjun Kapoor and his 'Student of the Year' actors Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan for the same.

    'Gippi' is all set to hit the big screens on May 10 and all we can say to 'Riya' is to fully enjoy this beautiful ride which is every teenager's dream.
