Luv Ranjan’s upcoming film which will be an action thriller, might reunite Bollywood’s most adored onscreen couple Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. The two were last seen together in Imtiyaz Ali’s Tamasha and after a gap of around four years, the two might come together on the big screens. The yet to be titled project also features Ajay Devgn in a primary character. As per the buzz Devgn and Ranbir will play father and son in the movie. For months the speculations were rife with regards to the actress who would be paired opposite Ranbir. And now as per the reports in Mumbai Mirror, Deepika is mostly finalized to play the leading girl opposite Kapoor.
A source close to the project informed, “She is currently busy with her first production, Chhapaak, being shot in the capital, while Ajay is wrapping up Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and Ranbir is juggling Brahmastra and Shamshera. However, the film is likely to go on the floors only towards the year-end by which time they would have wrapped up their on-going commitments.”
The project is said to be Luv’s most ambitious project to date. With Ranbir and Ajay the movie was already mounted high however with Deepika coming in the frame, the movie will be the most anticipated project of the year. Before Tamasha, Ranbir and Deepika were seen in Bachna Ae Haseeno and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.
During Karan Johar’s chat show, KJo did make a statement that Ranveer and Alia are working together in Gully Boy while Deepika is also working with Ranbir Kapoor. That time the lady rolled her eyes. The two were also seen making rounds in the Mumbai studios, but it was merely for an ad film.
While talking about the project, Ranbir Kapoor had earlier told TimesOfIndia, “I have immense respect for Ajay sir and I’m excited about sharing the screen with him again. His body of work is inspiring. Luv and I have wanted to work with each other for some time now. I am sure this film will be a perfect start to our association.”
