Media reports say that Ranveer Singh will star in Zoya Akhtar's upcoming film, which also features Anushka Sharma, Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar.

The ex-flames Ranveer and Anushka will share the screen space for the first time after their breakup. Ranveer and Anushka were last seen in 2011 film "Ladies vs Ricky Bahl".

"Yes I have signed Zoya Akhtar's next with Priyanka," the "Gunday" actor said, according to Koimoi.com.

 The film tells the story of brother sister which will be played by Priyanka and Ranveer. Anushka will reportedly play Ranveer's love interest in the film.

Priyanka and Ranveer as brother and sister is a bit odd casting, as they will be seen romancing each other in the upcoming film "Gunday". However, a source close to the "Ram-leela" actor said that Ranveer and Priyanka will convincingly play the role of siblings.

"They are both very accomplished young talents. They will look as convincing as siblings and lovers," the source told Bollywood Hungama.  

After finalising the lead characters of the film, Zoya is all set for the first schedule of the film.

The "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara" director recently visited South Africa and Italy to finalise the shooting location of the film.

The first schedule of the film will reportedly bring together the ex-flames Ranveer and Anushka. The film will go on floors by May-June.

The couple has been avoiding each other since they broke up; however, they will finally work together in the upcoming project. But it remains to be seen whether Ranveer and Anushka will recreate their "Band Baaja Baarat" chemistry in the upcoming film.
