Maneesh Sharma, who made his directorial debut with Band Baaja Baarat will reportedly direct this untitled romantic comedy. The director, who is presently busy shooting for his film Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl will start shooting for the new film once he has completed his work on Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl.
The YRF and Sharma were so impressed with the on screen chemistry shared by Anushka and Shahid in Badmaash Company that they decided to pair them up once again. The makers also apparently watched Shahid-Sonam starrer Mausam.
Meanwhile, Anushka and Shahid are apparently trying to adjust their dates to fit in this project. If sources are to be believed, the film will be scripted by Jaideep Sahni. Sahni also wrote the powerful scripts for Chak De, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Bunty Aur Babli.
Shahid Kapoor and Anushka Sharma, who starred earlier in Badmaash Company will be cast together in Yash Raj Films next, to be directed by Maneesh Sharma.
