Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, this jodi has been rocking the box office for quite a while now and with their latest film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, they have reached new heights, becoming the third highest grossing film of Bollywood.
The chemistry between the two stars has clicked in every movie they have done together and after giving the biggest hit of of the year, Imtiaz Ali has signed them for his next romantic flick!
There were rumours that Alia Bhatt or Katrina Kaif might play the lead role for his film but after the success of YJHD, it can be revealed that Dips has been finalised for the role!
Says an industry source, “The success of YJHD proves beyond all doubts that the audiences are in love with this onscreen pair. Ranbir was on-board for almost a year. Though Imtiaz and Ranbir had discussed various options for the lead actress, they were still debating on who was the best choice. It was during the shooting of YJHD, that Ranbir suggested Deepika’s name. Imtiaz, who worked with her before in Love Aaj Kal, was open to the idea. Then came the blockbuster YJHD which turned out to be the clinching factor.”
