Yash Raj Films recently announced their first release of the year.

Directed by Parmeet Sethi and produced by Aditya Chopra, the movie is titled, Badmaash Company.

The film stars Shahid Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in lead roles along with Meiyang Chang and Vir Das.

Badmaash Company is said to be an extraordinary tale set in the 90's. It revolves around four young friends coming from a middle class family. They get together to start a company. But to their surprise, the business becomes an instant hit for all the wrong reasons! The film is expected to release this May in UK cinemas.

Meanwhile, associate director, Maneesh Sharma, of the Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi fame will be directing the next Yash Raj movie.

Produced by Aditya Chopra, the film will see model Ranveer Singh making his film debut. Anushka Sharma is said to play his love interest.

The movie revolves around Shruti (Anushka Sharma) and Bittoo (Ranveer Singh) who reluctantly set up their new entrepreneurial venture.

The movie shows how their friendship and business face up to the struggles of the glamour and glitz of Delhi weddings.

Shooting for this yet to be titled film has already started this month with a scheduled release later in the year.
