Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are pretty much the apple of everyone’s eyes and undoubtedly the favourite couple of Sanjay Leela Bhansali. As such, SLB has gone one to feature them in three film Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat – all of which are blockbusters.

But the fireworks are not over quite yet. Reports have suggested that Aditya Chopra’s Yash Raj Films has expressed keenness in casting Deepika and Ranveer in their forthcoming venture – which is said to be helmed by Maneesh Sharma.

YRF is known for some popular romantic films. But it needs to be seen whether they will be going for a full-fledged romantic drama or a rom-com for this popular couple.

While Aditya Chopra was always keen on producing a film with Ranveer, we hear that they decided to rope in Deepika Padukone after one of her recent films was put on hold.

We are talking about her Vishal Bhardwaj film. The female-centric drama featuring Deepika as a gangster is inspired by the real-life story of the famous gangster Sapna Didi.

However, the film was also supposed to feature Irrfan Khan and the actor, as we know, is taking treatment for his illness. So the film has been put on hold and it is yet to be known as to when the actors will resume the schedule.

Hence, considering that Deepika Padukone has some time to spare in her otherwise choc-o-block schedule, the makers decided to approach her. It is now being said that both the actors are thrilled about collaborating for the fourth time. However, an official announcement is awaited on the same.

The said Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone starrer with YRF is expected to go on floor next year. Singh is expected to wrap up even 1983 before he kicks off this film.

An official confirmation is yet to be announced.
