"I am super excited to work with Zoya as I believe she's one of the most talented directors in the industry. Moreover it's a part that really pushes me as an actor and gives me a chance to showcase an aspect of my performance that will surprise my fans," he said.
Ranveer plays the main lead in the film, which is reportedly titled 'Dil Dhadakne Do'.
Zoya's directorial venture will also have Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and Farhan Akhtar. There is buzz that Ranveer and Priyanka will play siblings, with Anushka and Farhan opposite them.
However, the actor's spokesperson clarified that there is no exclusivity clause in the (film) contract, as reported. There were reports that Zoya wanted to keep the look of Ranveer under wraps and so he signed a contract with the production house stating he will not shoot for any film until Zoya's film wraps up.
"He will be shooting for over 75-80 days of the total 90 day schedule of the film," spokesperson of the actor said.
Ranveer has also finally opened up to doing endorsements and has recently signed several A-list brands.
Zoya's film will reportedly be shot across Europe, Turkey, Spain, Italy and France.
