Zoya Akhtar, whose original program to rope in Ranbir Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor for a brother-sister character for her upcoming project went kaput, has now reportedly contacted Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh for the same. Reportedly, Priyanka Chopra is to play Ranveer’s elder sister.
As per a daily, Zoya Akhtar initially wanted real life first cousins Kareena and Ranbir to play siblings in her film and everything went fine till a point as both had decided to the character. However, it’s Ranbir who backed out of the project sometime back and Ranveer replaced him. However, sources have disclosed that Kareena also opted out, as she was undecided about playing Ranveer’s elder sister.
“When Zoya began writing the script, she thought of getting Kareena and Ranbir together. Kareena was extremely excited to play Ranbir`s screen sister. But with Ranveer stepping in, she is now having second thoughts,” a source said. Priyanka and Ranveer Singh are also working in a movie-‘Gunday’, which is slated to launch on 14th February, 2014.
