Ranveer Singh, Katrina Kaif to romance in Zoya Akhtar's gangster drama
Mumbai : Recently, it was reported that actor Ranveer Singh may collaborate with 'Gully Boy' director Zoya Akhtar for the third time; now an addition to this is that Katrina Kaif may be roped in as the female lead. If the deal turns into a reality then this will be the first time when Ranveer Singh and Katrina Kaif will be seen together on silver screens as lead pair.
It has been known that Zoya Akhtar's upcoming project is a gangster drama in the dark space.
As per a report in Pinkvilla, a source close to the development said, "After Dil Dhadakne Do and Gully Boy, Ranveer Singh will be seen in Zoya’s next gangster drama. It’s again in the dark, gritty space that Gully Boy was. Ranveer has already okayed the film. They were in the process of locking dates when the lockdown happened. Post this, first Ranveer will sort his dates out for his already committed films and then start Zoya’s next."
No official confirmation to this came from both the actors, but the source claims that Katrina Kaif will be playing Ranveer’s romantic interest. The role is powerful and integral to the storyline. "Katrina and Ranveer will be romantically paired on screen for the first time. She has a very interesting and powerful role, integral to the life of Ranveer’s character in the film. Katrina and Zoya are great buddies and when the director narrated her the story, she immediately agreed to be part of it. The modalities are currently being discussed before both the stars sign on the dotted line," source said.
Ranveer Singh and Katrina Kaif will be seen together in Rohit Shetty's upcoming cop drama Sooryavanshi that has Akshay Kumar in the lead role.
