Shahid Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra in Yash Raj’s next?

Rumour has it that the Ladies vs Ricky Bahl babe will be paired opposite Shahid in Maneesh Sharma’s next directorial outing. Hope Priyanka Chopra isn’t going red!

We hear that Maneesh Sharma, director of one of Shahid Kapoor’s forthcoming flick under the Yash Raj Films banner, has informed the big bosses at the production house that he’d like to cast Shahid’s alleged ex-flame Priyanka Chopra’s sister, Parineeti Chopra opposite Sasha in his next directorial film. In fact, Maneesh was the one to give Parineeti, who back then was working in the marketing department of YRF, her first big screen break with Ladies vs Ricky Bahl. So it’s not shocking that he thought of casting her again but this time in a lead role.

Earlier, it was speculated that the Badmaash Company pair (Shahid-Anushka Sharma) would return in Maneesh’s next. However it appears that Anushka’s busy schedule (Yash Chopra’s film with SRK-Katrina Kaif, Vishal Bharadwaj’s film opposite Imran Khan and now Rajkumar Hirani’s film with Aamir Khan) isn’t allowing her to accommodate her good friend Maneesh’s next project.

The YRF officials have neither denied nor substantiated the rumour, but we think Sasha and Parineeti should make a cute and refreshing pair. For starters, both match very well in the height department! Meanwhile, we wonder if the Ishqzaade gal’s cousin Priyanka Chopra, who was once upon a time romantically linked with Sasha, is fine with this pairing. Priyanka and Parineeti are known to be quite close to each other and we just hope that Shahid doesn’t cause any rift between these two loving sisters!
