Both Singh and Samrat are eyeing the lead role in Akhtar’s next multi-starrer
Zoya Akhtar has been toying with the idea of making a multi-starrer family film for a long time now. There were talks that the director was planning to cast her favourite actors Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif in this ambitious project. The movie was keenly followed by the media because of the possibility of Ranbir Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor being cast as siblings for the first time. But we hear that’s not going to happen.
Our khabroo informs us that the Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani actor is no longer a part of Akhtar’s project and the filmmaker who’s already spent considerable time on the pre-production, couldn’t wait for Ranboo any longer.
Now, if the latest goss is to be believed, the Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara director is quite confused over casting the lead actor of her film. Some say she is keen to take on board Ranveer Singh while others say she’s equally impressed with the one-film old Pulkit Samrat after watching his performance in her brother Farhan Akhtar’s co production, Fukrey. As far as Ranveer is concerned, wethinks Zoya must have considered his stock of promising films lined up for release this year – Ramleela, Lootera and Gunday among others besides his acting skills, obviously.
So BollywoodLifers, who according to you will Zoya eventually settle for as the film’s lead actor?
