The Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara director was keen on the Kapoor cousins Kareena and Ranbir in the family drama. However, when things did not work out with the two, names of Ranveer and Priyanka did the rounds. Madhuri Dixit, Sridevi and Dimple Kapadia were also reportedly considered for a role in the film. Though no official announcement has been made about the cast, Zoya now can’t finalise a title.

Says a source, “Zoya, Farhan and his production partner Ritesh Sidhwani are having creative differences. They have been tossing suitable names for the film but have been unable to lock in on anything unanimously. The trio seems to have diverse opinions however, time is running out and they need to finalise a title soon.”

Adds the source, “They have also been in conversation with many actors and will be locking their ensemble cast shortly. The project with the cast details will be announced soon and hence they are keen to find the title. As the story is about a brother-sister relationship, the name plays a vital role.” Zoya’s film is slated to go on the floors in April and will be shot on a cruise liner off the South African coast.
