Zoya Akhtar’s forthcoming film seems to be about family relationships. Ranveer Singh has been signed as male lead for the role which was initially meant for Ranbir Kapoor. BizAsia has learnt that Anil Kapoor has been offered the role of Singh’s dad.
Priyanka Chopra was rumoured to have been approached for the role of Singh’s sister following Kareena Kapoor’s refusal to essay the role without her brother Ranbir as her on-screen sibling. No confirmation has been received that Chopra has taken up the role. Anil has been asked to take on the role of Singh’s father but this is yet to be finalised.
Akhtar’s film is turning into an interesting one what with the fact that there is speculation that it will be a toss between Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit-Nene to play Singh’s mother’s role.
It will be something to wait for to see how all of these actors are portrayed on screen.
