MUMBAI: Yash Raj Films will be launching Parineeti Chopra in Maneesh Sharma’s Ladies V/S Ricky Bahl, starring Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles.
The production house has signed Chopra for a three-film deal.
Chopra has been with YRF for over a year in the marketing department as a part of the promotional and PR team. Given a one-off chance to audition for the film, she impressed both Sharma and Aditya Chopra and was immediately cast for a role as one of the ladies who fall prey to the smooth talking guile of Ricky Bahl.
“I think Parineeti was phenomenal in her video test. I had no doubts that I wanted her in my film. In fact, when I worked on the script, I had her at the back of my mind, having interacted with her while she was in office,” said Sharma.
Ladies V/S Ricky Bahl starts shooting early-April and is scheduled to release on 9 December, 2011.
