After a lot of speculation, the leading lady for Ayan Mukerjee’s next venture has been finalized. The Wake up Sid director has roped in his 1st choice Katrina Kaif, who will be cast opposite Ranbir Kapoor. This will be the 3rd time that Katrina and Ranbir will star opposite each other after Ajab Prem ki Ghazab Kahani and Rajneeti.
After the rumored break up between Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, it wasn’t certain whether the pair would act together again. Rumors started going round that the director was considering another ex of Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone. The rumors started after Ayan Mukerjee had said that he wanted to make a film with Deepika. But now it’s clear that Deepika Padukone was never in contention.
Anushka Sharma was another leading lady who was in contention. It’s said that Anushka was very excited to work with Ranbir and had even told her friends the same. But things dint work out and Ayan went back with his 1st choice for the role. Katrina was finalized after Ayan had a meeting with both Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor.
