This is the third collaboration between Ayan and Ranbir after Wake Up Sid and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. The upcoming film, also starring Alia Bhatt, has been tentatively titled Dragon.

"I have not locked the title yet. Dragon is just the tentative title. It was called Dragon because in the film, the guy has a mystical connection with fire. It is his power. So, I called it Dragon. There is something I like about the word," Ayan told reporters last night.

Ranbir, who is currently shooting for the Sanjay Dutt biopic, is expected to start filming Ayan's film in August. The director said that the actor will have to go to extra lengths for Dragon.

"Ranbir will have to put a lot of extra efforts for the movie. There is so much stuff in the film, like action, dance, movements..I hope he is going to do a lot in the film."

He was speaking at the Indian premiere of Moonlight, organised by the Jio MAMI Film Club. The screening was also attended by Kiran Rao, Kabir Khan, Rajkummar Rao, Sayani Gupta and Shruti Seth among others.
