Mumbai, March 4 (IANS) Director Rajkumar Santoshi, who has been toying with the idea of making a love story for some time, has signed Bollywood's new sensation Ranbir Kapoor for a film. He will cast Katrina Kaif in the female lead.
He starts the project immediately.
Confirming the development, Santoshi told IANS: "I'm making this film, Ranbir has confirmed and even Katrina has almost confirmed. I wanted to work with Ranbir the minute I saw him in 'Saawariya'. I see that special spark in him. In fact, after I saw him in 'Saawariya', I sent him a bouquet. I was so impressed by him."
Following the unexpected debacle of "Halla Bol", producers are no longer eager for more from the Ajay Devgan-Santoshi pair.
