Ranbir Kapoor to pair with Anushka Sharma

If things go the planned way, Ranbir Kapoor will be seen playing the lead in Anurag Kashyap’s film Bombay Velvet. And the interesting bit is that Anushka Sharma will play Ranbir’s leading lady in the movie. This would be the first film together for both Ranbir and Anushka.

Anurag Kashyap has given up waiting for Aamir Khan to give the nod for his film Bombay Velvet, which revisits the city of Mumbai and its ethos in the era of 1960s. The film’s leading man is required to play a mainstream superstar. With Aamir not showing any interest in the project, Kashyap is reported to have decided to rope in Ranbir Kapoor for the role.

Ranbir, whose career has peaked with a slew of Best Actor awards for his performance in Rockstar, will next be seen playing a deaf and mute character in director Anurag Basu’s film Barfee. After that he’s got a film with Deepika Padukone in the pipeline.

Anushka Sharma, on the other hand, has been busy with Vishal Bhardwaj’s film Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola and will also be seen in Yash Chopra’s next starring Shahrukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.

Though there has been no confirmation yet as to whether Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma have given their nod to Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet, but seeing the two talented actors together in a period film would be no less than a treat for the movie buffs.
