Mumbai: Actors Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor, who will be teaming up for Yash Raj Films next project titled `Gunday`, will be seen playing the role of thieves.

The film titled `Gunday` is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar of `Mere Brother ki Dulhan`. The film produced by Aditya Chopra, will star Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor in the lead roles.

Amidst the most turbulent times in the history of Kolkata, then Calcutta, from 1971 to 1988, Bikram and Bala rose from being small time wagon breakers and coal thieves to becoming the biggest and most powerful black marketing mafia men, a press release issued by Yash Raj Films said.

A rare combination of vigour and wit, the two were inseparable and the city of Calcutta swore by their friendship, as their notoriety became the stuff of legends.

The People of this sprawling city started calling these two carefree rebels-`Gunday`, the release added.

Both Ranveer and Arjun started their career in Bollywood with YRF movies- `Band Baaja Baarat` (2010) and `Ishaqzaade` (2012) respectively and both these films did quite well at the box office.

This is both Ranveer and Arjun`s third film with the banner and the first time that these two powerful performers have come together.

The leading lady, who plays a pivotal role in the film, is still to be cast and will be announced shortly. The film goes on floor this December.
