Deepika, Ranbir together again
Karan Johar’s banner that gave us Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kal Ho Na Ho, Kabhie Alvida Na Kehna and some of the best contemporary romantic fare, has just announced Ayan Mukerjee’s film. It is a love story, which Dharma Productions excel in.
This (hold your breath!) Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone film is titled Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani.
Says Karan Johar, “The line Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani is taken from the famous RD Burman song from the 70s hit Jawani Deewani. It will our second film with Ranbir and Ayan, the team that won awards and accolades for Wake Up Sid.While WUS was a coming of age film, YJHD is quintessentially a romantic one.” When asked how Deepika managed to bag this film when so many other heroines out there were actually vying for it, Karan says, “Ayan, Ranbir and I are convinced she is the best choice for the film.”
He adds, “Deepika and Ranbir were seen together in Bachna Ae Haseeno. But according to me, their celluloid chemistry is yet to be exploited to its fullest.” Happy that Deepika will be on board for the first time in her four-year-old career, Karan says, “We’re happy to have Deepika work with us. She is a lovely girl and a very interesting actor.” YJHD will go on the floors in January 2012.
