Anushka Sharma pairs up with Shahid Kapur?
Sat, Mar 14, 2009
By all chances, Anushka Sharma and Shahid Kapur can be seen paired opposite each other in Yashraj’s untitled venture to be directed by Parmeet Sethi.
Trying new actors and giving chances to debutants seems to be the new mantra of Yashraj Films . After introducing Anushka in the runaway hit Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi , the production house is reported to be making another film with her in female lead. And Shahid, who’s already working in the banner’s ‘Hadippa’ (tentatively titled) with Rani Mukherjee , is set to be Anushka’s hero.
According to sources, Parmeet Sethi has written the script which Aditya Chopra liked instantly and decided to back the project. Well, Parmeet’s association with the YRF has been since he acted in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge . It’s heard that Parmeet has also signed a contract with YRF for three films.
The film is believed to be a romantically themed family drama set in Punjab. It is reported that Adi recommended Anushka’s name to Parmeet for the film. And Shahid reportedly gave nod to the project once he heard the narration and his character sketch.
But following the YRF convention, everyone is tight-lipped about the project. The movie will reportedly go on floors by the end of this year.
As for now, Yashraj Films is waiting for their year’s first release New York , starring John Abraham , Katrina Kaif and Neil Nitin Mukesh .
