Ranbir Kapoor-Jacqueline Fernandez team up for Vicky Singh’s Roy
The Besharam actor surprised his school friend Vicky by agreeing to do his debut film
Looks like Ranbir Kapoor is very fond of playing title roles on screen, and his movie names too are getting funnier – Barfi!, Besharam, and now, Roy! Yes, after he’s done with his Besharam act in Abhinav Kashyap’s next, Ranbir will turn thief for his friend Vicky Singh’s film Roy, where he will again play the title role of Roy.
After working in his school friend Ayan Mukerji’s debut film Wake Up Sid, B-town’s youngest heartthrob has green lighted another school friend Vicky Singh’s debut film, Roy to be produced by Bhushan Kumar. The action-drama also starring Arjun Rampal and hottie Jacqueline Fernandez will go on floors later this year, after Ranbir is through with Besharam and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani,which he’s currently shooting for.
Debutant director Vicky had quit his banking job in the US to assist Farhan Akhtar in Lakshya, and has been trying to get a directorial break for a while. This time around, Vicky has resuscitated his project, but with plenty of caution. Instead of cashing in on Ranbir Kapoor’s girlfriend Katrina Kaif, Vicky has decided to cast the Race 2 gorgeous star, but wait… considering it’s a two-heroine project, there’s a room for one more heroine. Will Katrina make a surprise entry? We won’t be surprised if that happens!
Going by the reports, if Ranbir starts shooting for Roy after Besharam, wonder when will the actor find time to shoot for other equally interesting projects for which he has already committed – Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet and Anurag Basu’s biopic on Kishore Kumar.
