Hindustan Times, New Delhi
Bollywood actors and former couple Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone are all set to team up for a romantic film directed by Anurag Basu, reports suggest. They were recently seen together in an ad.
A Bollywoodlife report claimed that both Ranbir and Deepika are in talks with Anurag for his next directorial. Quoting a source, the report claimed that Ranbir and Deepika were offered scripts earlier, but Ranbir is particularly excited about this new one and wants to get Deepika onboard.
While Anurag has given Ranbir his career-best film in Barfi, the duo also worked together on Jagga Jasoos. Deepika, however, has not worked with the director yet.
Before Tamasha, Ranbir and Deepika were seen in Ayan Mukerji’s musical blockbuster Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. The film, which had an exciting cast including Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin, went on to give chartbusters like Balam Pichkari, Batameez Dil and many more. Prior to that, they were seen together for the first time in Bachna Ae Haseeno.
Talking about Deepika, Ranbir had earlier said, “The amount of love I have for Deepika is like family. It’s very warm, it’s about care, about being proud of her. The facet of love, care and respect has changed but changed for the better. It’s not your immature “I love her” kind of feeling. It’s mature and that has come with age. Also, we have both positively moved on with our lives.”
On the work front, Ranbir is gearing up for the release of Brahmastra that also stars Alia and Amitabh Bachchan. Directed by Ayan Mukerji, Brahmastra is the first in his fantasy film trilogy. He will also begin work on Shamshera alongside Sanjay Dutt. Deepika has completed the first leg of shoot for Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak.
