Mumbai: Looks like we have a new couple in Tinsel Town. Rumours are abuzz that Shahid Kapoor and Anushka Sharma are cosying up to each other. What more, they are also planning to star in Yash Raj’s next film.
The duo had a rocky start when they first starred in YRF’s ‘Badmaash Company’. Insiders claim that they didn’t get along that well on the sets of the film. But when they met recently at actor Imran Khan’s party, they seemed to have warmed up to each other.
A tabloid also claims that the two hit it of at the party and were also seen indulging in PDA, much to the discomfort of the other guests.
Director of ‘Band Baaja Baarat’, Maneesh Sharma is probably cashing in on the new found ‘friendship’ and has decided to cast Anushka and Shahid in his next film which will be produced by YRF.
Speaking to a daily, a source informed, “The last time that Anushka and Shahid worked together was in the YRF production, ‘Badmaash Company’. Their on-screen chemistry was so convincing that many thought that it stemmed from an off-screen romance. And after watching Shahid’s performance in ‘Mausam’, YRF and Maneesh decided that Anushka and Sasha were an apt pair for the film.”
Maneesh is at present working on ‘Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl’ which stars Anushka along with her ex Ranveer Singh and has simultaneously started working on the script of his next romantic comedy.
Apparently, both Shahid and Anushka are excited about the new film( but of course!) and are currently trying to adjust their dates for the same. “The film has been scripted by Jaideep Sahni, who also wrote the scripts of the three blockbusters - `Chak D`e, `Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi` and` Bunty Aur Babli`,” added the source.
When contacted, YRF spokesperson said, “Maneesh is still shooting ‘Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl’. He will complete his next script and finalise the cast after the release of `Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl`, on December 9.”
