Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor Khan will be the leading ladies of the film. According to the sources, previosuly Karan wanted to cast Ranbir Kapoor and Ranvir Singh for the role of the brothers but Ranbir rejected the offer. He ahd accepted the offer initially but changed his mind later. Karan still isn't sure whether Ranbir turned down the offer because he was offered a negative role or because he did not want to do a two hero film with Ranveer. Another sources said, "Most heroes don't want to do a two-hero film so he is having a problem casting that role. Karan wants somebody younger than Ranveer so he can't even approach other big actors." Kareena Kapoor Khan will be seen in the role of the sister of Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt will be playing the love interest of the same. Well, we are already waiting for the commencement of the shoot of this film seeing so many talented and mesmerizing people of the B-town.
