Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in KJo’s film
Former celebrity lovers Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone will be seen together in lead roles in an untitled film to be produced by Karan Johar under his banner Dharma Productions and directed by Ayan Mukerji of Wake Up Sid fame.
Initially, Katrina Kaif was to play the female lead opposite Ranbir, but she has earlier signed the Yash Raj Films production where she is paired with Shah Rukh Khan and whicxh will be directed by Yash Chopra. Since there is a clash of dates, Karan Johar offered the role to Deepika who has gladly accepted it.
Though Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone were romantically linked for some time, they were not seen together on screen so far and therefore director Ayan Mukerji expects that the chemistry between the two stars would help his film.
