New Delhi [India], Dec.02 (ANI): After Karisma, Kareena and Ranbir, the next generation of Kapoors is all set to enter the Bollywood film industry!

The newcomer Aadar Jain, who is a cousin to the Kapoors and Raj Kapoor's grandson, is being launched by none-other-than Aditya Chopra.

Karisma recently shared a snapshot of an article of a leading daily on her Instagram account that divulged all the information about the star kid's entry.

"To new beginnings #congrats #cousinbrother #workhardandshine #familylove @aadarjain @rimosky," wrote the proud sister.

An alumnus of the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, Aadar was also first AD on the sets of Karan Johar's 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'.

The report also suggests that Adi might launch Aadar on the same scale as 'Ishaqzaade', in a romantic drama helmed by Habib Faisal.

Talking about Aadar, casting director Shanoo Sharma told the daily, "He was on my radar even then. Rima is a family friend and these kids have grown up before my eyes. I would keep running into Armaan and Aadar at Dharma Productions, while casting for Karan's (Johar) movie. I told Aadar that I wanted to capture him on video just talking. He came across as very charming and incredibly cute. There's a whole different side to him - flirtatious and mischievous - Aadar has Shashi Kapoor's energy about him. I showed the video to Adi who liked him, too, and said we could cast him whenever something suitable was happening."

She also added, "Aadar did not get Habib's film because he is Raj Kapoor's grandson, but because this boy has it in him. He is incredibly watchable, arresting and has that charisma. In the end, no matter what, if Habib Sir didn't believe in the boy, nothing would have made him sign him. It has to be the perfect casting."

Ranbir Kapoor's sister Ridddhima also took to her social media to congratulate the 'super star' and wrote, "The next super star has arrived!!!! All the best baby bro Aadar Jain love you Rima Jain @aadarjain @rimosky." (ANI)
