Mumbai, June 17 -- They teamed up after a gap of five years (the last time being the 2008 hit, Bachna Ae Haseeno) for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (YJHD). And they managed to hit the bullseye. As Ayan Mukerji's latest hit continues to rake in money at the box office, it hardly comes as a surprise that filmmakers want to cast the duo together again.
One of the projects that has been in the news is Imtiaz Ali's upcoming Ranbir-starrer. It's believed that the director (who made Rockstar with Ranbir in 2011) has been in a dilemma over the female lead for a while. The yet-untitled project, to be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, was always confirmed to star Ranbir. Now, we have learnt that Imtiaz has decided to bring back the currently hot pairing by roping in Deepika for the role.
"They haven't put things on paper yet, but after YJHD, Imtiaz is sure about Deepika," says an industry insider.
