An amused Ranveer Singh says, “Deepika calls me a ham sandwich.”
Probably her wisecracks helped the actor recover fast from dengue, combined with the anticipation of three major films awaiting his return. After Bhansali’s biggie, Ram Leela (co-starring Deepika), the young actor has two Yash Raj films, Gunday (alongside Priyanka Chopra and Arjun Kapoor) and Kill Bill (Parineeti Chopra), awaiting his dates. And going by the buzz, he should also be part of Zoya Akhtar’s film in which Anushka Sharma plays his romantic interest while Priyanka plays — hold your breath — his sister.
So, if all goes well, will this mean Ranveer-Priyanka will play romantic leads in Gunday and siblings too?
Ranveer can take courage from the fact that Aishwarya Rai and Shah Rukh had pulled it off earlier with Josh (they played brother-sister) and Mohabbatein (they played lovers), both of which released in the same year.
