The latest buzz to grip the tinsel ville is that Zoya Akhtar has finalized Anushka Sharma to play the romantic lead opposite Ranveer Singh in the film. But what about their not-so-friendly equation, as the two are rumoured to have had a bitter parting?
It’s learnt that both the actors -- thorough professionals that they are -- have agreed to do the film. As per trade sources, Zoya Akhtar has also signed Anil Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia to play Ranveer Singh’s parents, while Priyanka Chopra has already been confirmed to essay the role of Ranveer’s sister in the film.
Following the success of films like Ek Tha Tiger and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Bollywood filmmakers seem to have a fixation to rekindle the lost chemistry of former flames on big screen and reap the fruits of success.
By getting Anushka and Ranveer for her film, Zoya has indeed pulled off a casting coup of sorts. The two looked smashing in films like Band Baaja Baaraat and Ladies V/s Ricky Bahl, and no one could have thought that the two will ever work again after their break-up.
Currently Anushka is busy with the shooting of Peekay in Delhi, while Ranveer Singh, down with dengue, is recuperating in the hospital.
