Kapoor studied in New York City for more than three years and
reminisces about the places he used to eat and shop at while shooting
for ANJANI ANJANI in NYC. This is the first feature film shot in New
York for Ranbir Kapoor.
Ranbir plays the character of Akash against KIRA played by PRIYANKA CHOPRA.
People are an interruption for Akash. If you ever met him at a coffee
shop, or were seated next to him on a plane or on the metro ride home.
You would be tempted to turn to him, maybe only to ask him the time.
There is something about him that draws you to him, and yet all too

ANJAANA ANJAANI is a story about two stranger - one stranger than the
other. Two people can meet ANYWHERE. In a cab on a rainy New York
afternoon, at the neighborhood bar, in a queue waiting to use the ATM
Machine, On a plane, deep sea diving, in the middle of an earth quake,
sitting on that famous bench at the Taj Mahal or standing under the
Pyramids in Egypt. You can meet someone in the most mundane of
circumstances or in the most exotic ones. Akash and Kiara meet. But they
meet in a situation as unusual as no other.
