The first poster of Karan Johar's next production Gippi is out! The poster shows 13-year-old Riya Vij in a hyper mode. The teenage actor is jumping on a bed out of some serious joy it seems.
Gippi is an upcoming drama film directed by Sonam Nair and produced by Karan Johar. The film features Riya Vij and Taaha Shah as main characters.
Gippi is the story of an overweight 13-year-old girl, who hates the idea of dieting. From the promos, it appears like she wants to be a Bollywood heroine but she is not as hot as other girls of her age.
The makers apparently undertook extensive auditions to find Delhi-based 13-year-old Riya Vij for the title role in the film. It has been shot in Mumbai and Shimla.
