Deepika-Ranbir to be directed by Imtiaz Ali

Now that their relationship is out in the open, Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone seem to have overnight become the most talked-about couple in filmdom. Sadly, just after cementing their relationship during the long outdoor spell of Yash Raj Films' Bachna Ae Haseenon in Australia, Deepika had to leave for a long shooting schedule of Nikhil Advani's Chandni Chowk To China.

She returned to India this week and is all set to start filming a very secret project with Ranbir. Grins Ranbir, "There's nothing so intriguing about it. It's an ad to be directed by Imtiaz Ali (of Jab We Met) for Pepsi. Earlier, Deepika and I did an ad with Shah Rukh Khan for the same brand. Now it's just the two of us, and that should be fun. But what I really want to do is a full feature film with Imtiaz."

Interestingly, Deepika goes into a feature film with Imtiaz Ali later this year with Saif Ali Khan which Saif is producing, while Ranbir's first-cousin Kareena who's currently Saif's love interest in real life is nowhere in the cast of Saif Ali Khan's first production. Imtiaz Ali insisted on having Deepika in the film.
