Ayaan Mukherjee’s next film is definitely one to watch out for. The director who wowed us with mesmerizing chemistry between the unusual paring of Konkona Sen Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor in Wake Up Sid is back. His next directorial venture is already making ripples in the industry courtesy the lead pair. Ranbir Kapoor has been retained by the talented young director and if reports are correct this time he will be pitted opposite his ex-girlfriend Deepika Padukone. Deepika and Ranbir have previously worked together in Bachna Ae Haseeno. Though their pairing was only part of the film due to the other two actresses, their chemistry was evident in the romantically shot song ‘Khuda Jaane’.
Apparently Deepika was Ayaan’s original choice for the role as per the script. Deepika also loved the script, but took time before giving her final nod.
Recently the former lovers had bitter exchange over the now infamous episode of Koffee with Karan where Deepika had not so nice things to say about Ranbir. After much intervention from Rishi Kapoor and Karan Johar things seem to have calmed down a bit. Bollywood has had a history of sworn enemies and exes not sharing the screen space together. They even avoid clashing each other at award shows or parties. Kareena Kapoor refused to promote Milenge Milenge with ex-boyfriend Shahid Kapoor. Well ,it’s time for them to take lessons from Bipasha Basu who has maintained an amazing equation with her ex-boyfriend Dino Morea.
Now how things will transpire on-screen and behind the scenes when the film shoot begins is something we will have to wait and watch.
As for the cine goers, we look forward to see the crackling chemistry appear on screen and let the movie talk for itself. Hope the film is talked about for all the right reasons and not just the media hype over its lead pair.
