Ranbir Kapoor Starring Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani opposite Deepika Padukone

Dharma Productions which already has Agneepath, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu and Student Of The Year up for release next year, has announced their next project Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. YJHD will be directed by Ayan Mukerji, who earlier made Wake Up Sid for the same banner.

The film stars Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in lead roles. This is the first time Deepika will be working with Dharma Productions. There was a lot of speculation as to who would be paired opposite Ranbir in the film. There were talks of Anushka Sharma or Katrina Kaif being approached for the role, but Deepika managed to bag the film, as Karan, Ayan and Ranbir were convinced that she is the best for the role. Deepika and Ranbir were seen together in Bachna Ae Haseeno and though they didn’t have much screen time together, their chemistry was electrifying. Their celluloid chemistry will be exploited to the fullest in YJHD.

The line Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani is taken from the famous R.D. Burman song from the 70s hit Jawani Deewani. While Wake Up Sid was a coming of age film Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani will be a hardcore romantic film.

Karan Johar tweeted, “So hey…Ranbir and Deepika will be in Ayan mukerji’s next titled…YEH JAWANI HAI DEEWANI!!! The wake up sid boys on the floors from jan!!”
