Arjun Kapoor-Anushka Sharma the new Bollywood item?

Spicezee Bureau

Mumbai: ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ hit maker Ranveer Singh has a close competitor in Arjun Kapoor (Boney Kapoor’s son) as the latter is getting friendlier with Anushka Sharma.

Apparently, Arjun Kapoor is all set to debut in Yash Raj Film’s ‘Virus Diwan’ and it might be possible that the actress might grab a role in the flick.

Talking to a daily, a source said, “Even though Aditya Chopra, Habib Faisal (director of Arjun`s debut film ‘Virus Diwan’) and a few other friends were present at this outing, Arjun and Anushka were chatting and laughing as if they`ve know each other for years.”

“Habib was involved in the writing of ‘Band Baaja Baaraat,’ so Anushka knows him well. Arjun has also become very friendly with him since he is directing `Virus Diwan`. So he`s like a catalyst in their friendship,” said the source.

When enquired about Anushka’s prospects, the source added, “That`s also because some girls have already been screen-tested for the part. But if Aditya and Habib aren`t too impressed with them, it won`t be surprising if they cast Anushka opposite Arjun in their new movie.”

Hmmm…now we are talking business!
