This was one casting coup which was deemed impossible but Zoya seems to have managed this feat. If sources are to be believed, cousins Ranbir Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor will soon be seen together in Zoya Akhtar’s next.
Both the stars had maintained that they would never do a romantic movie together but they would love to play cousins. “I don`t think people in the right senses would offer me a romantic movie with Bebo,” Ranbir had once said, “But yes, if there`s a movie on cousins, I would love to act with her.” Not cousins, but the Kapoor stars would be playing brother-sister in this venture. Says a source, “Zoya narrated the idea to Kareena while she was shooting for Talaash. Kareena immediately loved it. Ranbir too has given it his consent. The film will now go on floors by the end of this year.”
Brother–sister relationships gave enough fodder to many scripts in the early 80s and 90s. Although this seemed to die down, Zoya now looks ready to revive the bhai-behen ka pyaar and what better way than to cast two extremely talented siblings. Although neither Zoya, Ranbir or Kareena confirmed this news, we surely hope that the audience would finally get to see the cousins together onscreen.
Stay tuned we will let you know more soon!
