Ranveer Singh & Katrina Kaif Starrer With Zoya Akhtar Adapted From THIS Hollywood Movie?
Ranveer and Katrina will be pairing up for the first time in this project
Zoya Akhtar is bringing Ranveer Singh and Katrina Kaif together for her next venture. While not much is known about the project, there have been reports that it will be adapted from a Hollywood Blockbuster.
A source has told Pinkvilla, “Zoya has got the rights of Martin Scorsese’s gritty thriller The Departed. The film Zoya is planning will be on the same lines and will explore the gritty world of the underbelly that runs in the country. Although it will be a completely new space for the filmmaker, she is confident about it after pulling off Gully Boy. She has offered Ranveer the part essayed by Leonardo Di Caprio in the original and he’s already said yes to her. Katrina will also be seen in a fantastic action packed role. Although Zoya has the rights, she will only take the basic idea from The Departed but will adapt it to suit the Indian audience.”
However, Zoya Akthar has not made an official confirmation of this news yet. We will just have to wait and see if there is any truth to this. Meanwhile, Ranveer and Katrina will be pairing up for the first time in this project. While the two have often talked about working with each other, no project had panned out till now. The two will also be seen in a brief scene in Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi since they are both part of different franchises of Shetty’s cop universe.
We will keep you updated as more news about the project comes around.
