Shah Rukh Khan, Ranbir Kapoor to star together in Karan Johar's next directorial?

If you loved filmmaker Karan Johar's romantic drama from last year, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, purely for that one scene involving Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and a cameo by Shah Rukh Khan, you have another film to look forward to.

Deccan Chronicle reports that Johar is planning his next directorial which is a love triangle involving two brothers and their common love interest. He has reportedly cast Shah Rukh and Kapoor as the two brothers. If the film materialises, it will be a casting coup on the lines of Hrishikesh Mukherji's 1971 film Anand which featured then-superstar Rajesh Khanna and the budding megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

Khan has also been in a similar "passing of the torch film" when he shared the screen space with Amitabh in Aditya Chopra's Mohabbatien.

Also, as the icing on the cake, Catch News reports that Johar is considering both Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif for the lead role. Shah Rukh has worked with Padukone in Farah Khan's Happy New Year and Om Shanti Om and Rohit Shetty's Chennai Express; and with Kaif in Yash Chopra's Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

Kapoor has not only had a successful working relationship with the two ladies, he has also been involved with them romantically off-screen. He has collaborated with Padukone in Siddharth Anand's Bachna Ae Haseeno, Ayan Mukerji's Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Imtiaz Ali's Tamasha, and with Kaif in Rajkumar Santoshi's Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, Prakash Jha's Rajneeti and Anurag Basu's upcoming Jagga Jasoos.

While Kapoor has had no qualms in working with Padukone post-breakup, he seems to be having issues with promoting Jagga Jasoos with Kaif. Thus, going by that assumption, Padukone has the upper hand in being cast for Johar's directorial. If she does, she will be seen romancing her first two heroes on the screen, Karan Johar style.
