Priyanka Chopra, a trusted and loyal lieutenant of Farhan Akhtar’s production company (she is the resident heroine of their Don series) has been roped in to play a pivotal role in Zoya Akhtar’s next directorial venture. The film’s story is about bonding between a brother and sister. And Priyanka’s brother in Zoya’s film will be played by none other than Ranveer Singh. A bit of an odd casting calculation considering the two play paramours in Yashraj 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.”
Zoya wanted to cast real-life cousins Ranbir and Kareena Kapoor as siblings in her film. The two rejected the offer as too gimmicky.
