Ranveer Singh and Zoya Akhtar are one deadly combo when it comes to making brilliant films and that was rather evident from the success of the latter's film 'Gully Boy'. Now, the buzz is that Zoya is on the lookout for a new story. And while the script has not been finalised yet, she sure seems to be rather clear about wanting to have Ranveer on board.
As per reports in a leading media portal, Zoya has now decided to make a two-hero starrer film next and one of the leads will be played by Ranveer Singh. The media portal also exclusively found out that the film is supposed to be a gangster flick. For this, Zoya is apparently also considering buying the remake rights of Hollywood gangster films The 'Departed' (2006) and 'Gangs of New York' (2002). Directed by Martin Scorsese, both the films also featured Leonardo DiCaprio who we all know is a brilliant actor.
Although it is still unclear whether Ranveer will step into DiCaprio's shoes for the role or whether he will have another part to play, it's being said that the two films will be adapted in a way that it fits into Mumbai's atmosphere. A source also revealed to them exclusively, “Zoya’s next will be a two-hero film and she is looking at buying the remake rights of a Hollywood gangster film very much like 'The Departed' or 'Gangs of New York'. She wants to take a film and adapt it for our desi audience, and it will be set in Mumbai too. She is also on the lookout for the second lead.”
Well, we're now wondering who this second lead could be. And to be honest, we're also rather excited about the project. If the film takes off, it will be Ranveer and Zoya's third film together post working on 'Gully Boy' and 'Dil Dhadakne Do'. Stay tuned for more updates.
