As per a report in Pinkvilla, a source close to the development said, “After Dil Dhadakne Do and Gully Boy, Ranveer Singh will be seen in Zoya’s next gangster drama. It’s again in the dark, gritty space that Gully Boy was. Ranveer has already okayed the film. They were in the process of locking dates when the lockdown happened.

The role is powerful and integral to the storyline. “Katrina and Ranveer will be romantically paired on screen for the first time. She has a very interesting and powerful role, integral to the life of Ranveer’s character in the film. Katrina and Zoya are great buddies and when the director narrated her the story, she immediately agreed to be part of it. The modalities are currently being discussed before both the stars sign on the dotted line, ” source said.
