Gossip has it that Ranbir has recommended Deepika to his good friend Ayan Mukerji, who is looking forward to direct a superhero flick starring him in the lead. This has also raised a few eyebrows as Ranbir wants tag along with Deepika and not his girlfriend Katrina Kaif in the movie.
Sources claim that it could just mean that the star wants the Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani team to come together again. He also feels that the audience wants to see him paired with Deeps.
Coincidentally, Ranbir Kapoor’s ladylove Katrina Kaif and Ayan Mukerji are also good buddies and she was apparently the first choice for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani but Kat turned down the offer because of date issues.
It’s even being said that Ranbir’s request to cast Deepika has left Ayan in a fix as he’s fond of both Katrina and Ranbir and was keen to work with them together.
Moreover, Deepika Padukone has bagged the lead role opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Imtiaz Ali’s next, and Katrina Kaif, too, was vying for the role.
