MUMBAI: Zoya Akhtar for a while has been eager to cast real-life cousins Kareena Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor as siblings in her upcoming film. Sadly, the director’s wish of casting them remains unfulfilled.

While the director plans to start shooting early next year, Ranbir Kapoor has an overbooked schedule till 2013. He already has a plethora of films in hand, which include ‘Besharam’, ‘Bombay Velvet,’ Karan Johar’s next and Anurag Basu’s next.

This makes Ranveer Singh the obvious choice. He already has, had a few meetings with Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani and its certain that he will be signed as the male lead.

Ranveer Singh has ‘Lootera’ which is up for release. Apart he is working on ‘Ram Leela’, ‘Kill Dill’, and ‘Gunday.’

A source close to Zoya Akhtar says, “It is a fantastic story about a dysfunctional family and Zoya is quite kicked about it. She is putting everything up as she does not want any last-minute hiccups.”

Incidentally, even Kareena Kapoor is not a part of the film any longer. Which means, even Ranveer Singh’s dream to work with Kareena Kapoor remains unfulfilled.

Well it would have been a dream to see Ranbir Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor playing cousins. But with both out, and even Ranveer Singh’s dream shattered to work with Kareena Kapoor, we wonder who will be playing sibling to Ranveer Singh. Zoya’s film, even before going on floors, continues to surprise us each moment.

More updates awaited Zoya Akhtar.
