Now this one is all set to be a biggie. Tentatively titled Window Seat, everything is in place for the much awaited film to finally get going. Though Ranbir Kapoor was always on board for this Sajid Nadiadwala production which is being directed by Imtiaz Ali, there were quite a few names being taken for the leading lady.
However, one of the major tilting factors towards Deepika Padukone being confirmed as the leading lady of the film was an excellent run enjoyed by her of late.
“With five biggies in a row, starting from Cocktail to Ram Leela, there was no way that anyone else could have been thought of. With Ranbir, Imtiaz, Deepika and Sajid coming together, the whole package becomes red hot in the trade. In any case, Deepika was more or less finalised from the very beginning. However her current spree, including Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani with Ranbir, only made sure that the formality was taken care of sooner than later,” a source close to the film says.
Moreover, it was Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal that had proven to be a landmark in Deepika’s career and it was just apt that the duo came together all over again. Deepika confirmed being a part of the film.
An official announcement around other cast and crew details as well as the exact date of shooting kick-start would soon be made.
