The year saw them fall apart, but Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif cast personal differences aside to work together in Jagga Jasoos. There were a few delays, but the duo finally completed the film. One thought that was the last time we would see them together.

However, a reunion may be on the cards before the year is out, albeit a reel one. Buzz has it that Sanjay Dutt is keen to have Katrina Kaif play his wife Manyata in his biopic that is to be directed by Rajkumar Hirani. And we all know who plays Dutt — Ranbir Kapoor.

Word is that Kaif liked the script but has not made up her mind on joining the project. While it may be tough for the British-origin actress to share screen space again with Kapoor, working with Hirani, director of blockbuster films like Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. (2003) and 3 Idiots (2009), is an enticing prospect.

Interestingly, if Kaif does decide to take up the film, the impact on Ranbir Kapoor's status will have to be watched. Kaif's presence was allegedly why he opted out of Karan Johar’s Dream Team concert. The duo’s sparring supposedly caused a few delays in the shooting of Jagga Jasoos. Would Hirani be willing to take such a risk?

Kapoor is currently shooting for Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. As per earlier reports, he is likely to begin shooting for the Sanjay Dutt biopic in September. Hirani is keen to release the film at Christmas next year.
