Katrina was originally signed for this film that is supposed to go on floors in November 2011. However Katrina is meant to giving the very same dates to Yashraj Productions for a film with Shah Rukh Khan that is being directed by veteran Yash Chopra.
It is said that even before the dates had been worked out Kat reportedly leaked out the news to the pressthat she was in Ayan's film opposite Ranbir because she wanted to grab some quick headlines. Then Kat realised she was in a fix over the dates, so Deepu who has been dying to open her accout with Dharma Productions and was also dying to get back together with Ranbir on screen has stepped in.
For the last few days Deepika has been preparing ground for her film with Ranbir. She has using the Aarakshan platformto constantly say--`I have no issues working with Ranbir.' The reason is simple. Deepika has known for more than a week now that she is in the one in Ayan's film with RK Junior. However she was keeping the news close to her chest because she had not signed the dotted line. A trade source says, ``Now it's official. Deepika will romance Ranbir.''
Kat has been left out in the cold or perhaps when it came to making a final choice Kat preferred Shah Rukh Khan over Ranbir Kapoor.
