The next big pairs in Zoya Akhtar's next

The next big pairs in Zoya Akhtar's next

28-12-2012

Zoya Akhtar has done what Karan Johar couldn’t. Hrithik-Kareena and Ranbir-Katrina have been roped in to play the lead pairs in Zoya Akhtar’s next. Reports about Kareena Kapoor being signed on with cousin Ranbir in Zoya’s next made the rounds quite some time ago. We are told that Zoya spoke to Kareena about the script, during the filming of Talaash and she instantly accepted, especially because of the fact that Ranbir will play his brother in the film. Ranbir too was excited when he heard the script and the cast and took no time in signing the dotted lines. Zoya is apparently trying to revive the brother-sister genre once again in the Hindi film industry. Now, the lead pairs have been finalized with Kareena and Hrithik, who share some great on-screen chemistry and haven’t been seen together since Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. A source said, “Kareena and Hrithik have not shared screen space since 2003, when they did Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon. Zoya wanted to revisit their onscreen chemistry. And since Hrithik has already worked with Zoya, he welcomed the offer.” About the other lead pair, Ranbir and Katrina, the source said, “Their chemistry – be it in Ajab Prem or Rajneeti has been much appreciated. And Zoya was keen on getting them on board.” The film goes on floors mid-2013 and will most likely be released by end of 2013 or early 2014.
