The ‘Band Baaja Baraat’ actress Anushka Sharma is all set to romance Ranbir Kapoor in ‘Wake Up Sid’ director Ayan Mukherjee’s next flick.
Before Anushka, two names were suggested for the lead role. First, Deepika Padukone and then Katrina Kaif but neither of them was signed. Finally, the meaty role went to Anushka who is riding high on the success of ‘Band Baaja Baraat’.
A source said, “Deepika and Ayaan have been great friends for a long time now. While discussing the film, Deepika suggested that she wanted to be a part of the film. Ayaan thought she was apt for the role. However, there have been many ifs and buts since then. Ranbir’s then girlfriend, Katrina, was not very happy with Deepika being a part of the film. Besides, there were speculations about Katrina herself doing the movie.”
“However, after Ranbir and Katrina’s recent break up and the actor’s link-up to various women including Anushka, she seemed like the next obvious option for the role. And so, now, Anushka has been finalised for the film,” added the source.
When contacted, producer Karan Johar said, “Ayaan is still writing the film. He will lock his script in a month and then we will finalise everything. Right now the only person signed for the film is myself as the producer.”
Well, it will be a treat to watch two beautiful faces romancing each other. Agencies
