Sridevi or Madhuri Dixit – Who will play Ranveer Singh’s mother in Zoya Akhtar’s film?

Priyanka Chopra might have agreed to play her Gunday co-star’s sister in their next film, but guess the hunt for Mr Singh’s mother is still on…

Zoya Akhtar’s upcoming film’s casting woes continue. The filmmaker wanted to pull off a casting coup with Ranbir Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan in lead roles, however with the Kapoor siblings backing out, the Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara maker opted for Ranveer Singh. What followed was the search for the Band Baja Baraat actor’s sister. He found an exotic sister, but the makers are yet to finalise an actor to play the key role of Ranveer’s mom in the film. And the makers are keen on having either Sridevi,Madhuri Dixit-Nene or Dimple Kapadia for this role. Considering that both Sridevi and Dimple have played their age onscreen it might not be a tough task, but Madhuri who continues to work as a heroine might not want to be in the mommy’s role as yet. According to a newspaper, “Madhuri Dixit, Sridevi and Dimple Kapadia have been approached and they all seem to have liked the script. Whoever plays the mother will have a powerful role in the film as the story essentially revolves around her children and her.”

Will Madhuri give the project a go-ahead and enter the mommy league in B-town? Will the English Vinglish star ditch her Hollywood plans and give a nod to Zoya? Will the Bobby heroine make one of her rare presence on 70mm? Watch this space to find out who will be the Ram-Leela actor’s mommy dearest onscreen!
