Contrary to reports,it is Priyanka Chopra,a trusted and luscious lieutenant of Farhan Akhtar’s production company (she is the resident heroine of their Don series),and not Anushka Sharma who has been roped in to play a pivotal role in Zoya Akhtar’s next directorial venture.
The film is a story of a strong bonding between a brother and a sister. And Priyanka’s brother in Zoya’s film would be played by none other than Ranveer Singh.
A bit of an odd casting calculation,considering the two play paramours in Yash Raj Film’s ‘Gunday’. Says a source close to Ranveer,”They are both very accomplished young talents. They will look as convincing as siblings and lovers.”
To rewind a bit,Zoya wanted to cast real-life cousins Ranbir and Kareena Kapoor as siblings in her film. The two rejected the offer as too gimmicky.
