Ranbir and Parineeti in Karan’s next project?

It is rumored that film maker Karan Johar has offered Ranbir Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra the lead roles in his upcoming movie. With this movie, the on screen pairing of Ranbir and Parineeti will be seen for the first time.

Currently Karan is busy in his movie ‘Bombay Velvet’. He is also appearing as an actor in this movie. Only time will tell how good an actor he is, apart from being a fantastic film maker.

For some time Karan has been working on the script of a period movie. For that movie he approached a number of actors like Ranbir, Shahrukh, Siddharth Malhotra and then back to Ranbir.

Karan however denies deciding anyone for his lead actor or actress role. He said, “I’m still scripting the film and have not offered the film formally to any lead actress.” Well, that leaves us with the conclusion that actor has already been decided and most probably it’s Ranbir Kapoor.

Anurag Kashyap is the director of ‘Bombay Velvet’. He will be showcasing various short stories in this movie with all the stories linked somewhere. Anurag was asked about Karan’s role in this movie. He said, “The shoot starts next month. Karan has already lost 10 kilos out of the mentioned 12 kilos till now. He is on a spree of losing weight. He is still losing weight.” It is also known that Karan is a replacement for veteran actor Naseerudin Shah. Anurag was keen on casting him but as he took a long time to revert, Anurag thought of Karan as the next best suitable person. Karan had earlier made cameo appearances in few movies.

Ranbir currently is busy with the shooting of ‘Besharam’. He has two other movies in his kitty. They are ‘Roy’ and ‘Bombay Velvet’. While ‘Besharam’ is slated for this year’s release, the latter two will be released in 2014. He yet has to start shooting for these two movies.

Parineeti is filming for the movie ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’. She is starring opposite Sushant Singh. The poster of the movie has been released and is quite different from usual posters. This movie will be released in 2013. Her other movies for 2014 are ‘Kill Dill’, ‘Hasee toh Phasee’ and Habib Faisal’s un named movie. If she bags Karan’s project, she will have to really work hard on her schedules as she seems to be loaded with movies.
