Ranveer, 28, and Anushka first appeared together in 'Band Baaja Baarat', which turned out to be a successful film. They were later seen together in 'Ladies vs Ricky Bahl'. Now, director Zoya Akhtar has managed to cast Ranveer and Anushka in 'Dil Dhadakne Do'.
"Yes... we are in touch with each other. We share a very healthy and professional relationship. I believe Anushka is one of the best young actors in our country. She is incredibly talented and we work well together. I share special chemistry with her. I am excited to work with her again as it has been a long gap since we worked together," Ranveer told PTI.
'Dil Dhadakne Do' will see Ranveer and Anushka as a couple, while Ranveer and Priyanka Chopra will play siblings. It also features Farhan Akhtar, Anil Kapoor and Shefali Shah. Apparently, the film revolves around a Punjabi family on a cruise trip. It is produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar's Excel Entertainment and scheduled to release next year in June.
"I was waiting for the next opportunity where I will get to work with her (Anushka) again as we worked well together in our previous films. She hasn't been part of prep process as she got back from shooting of 'NH 10'," he said.
Anushka is turning producer with 'NH 10', an upcoming thriller film directed by Navdeep Singh of 'Manorama Six Feet Under' fame. The film is co-produced by Phantom Films and is scheduled to release in September this year. "I am very proud of the fact that she is the youngest producer in Hindi film industry. I know little about 'NH 10', I know it is going to be a fantastic film," Ranveer said.
