Ranbir Kapoor And Sanjay Leela Bhansali:
Will Ranbir Kapoor reunite with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone for ‘Baiju Bawra’? If the reports are to be believed, then Sanjay Leela Bhansali has approached Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone for his forthcoming directorial, ‘Baiju Bawra’.
Just last year, Sanjay Leela Bhansali had announced his forthcoming directorial, Baiju Bawra. The film is the remake of the 1952 film that featured Bharat Bhushan in the titular role opposite Meena Kumari. The star cast of Baiju Bawra hasn’t been announced yet and from Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan to Ranveer Singh, everyone’s names have popped up for the leading role. Bhansali will begin work on Baiju Bawra after completion of Alia Bhatt starrer Gangubai Kathiawadi.
Now as per the reports in Bollywood Hungama, Bhansali has approached Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone to play leading roles in Baiju Bawra. Talking about it, a source revealed to the entertainment portal,
“Ranbir and Deepika make a pair to reckon with on-screen and Bhansali wants to create magic on-screen with the two actors. Talks are on, however, neither of the two have signed the dotted lines yet.”
Talking about not approaching his favorite Ranveer opposite Deepika, the source went on to say,
“He will work with Ranveer again in the future, but he doesn’t want to repeat the pairing of the real-life couple for the fourth consecutive time.”
This source also talked about Ranbir and Deepika’s reunion stating,
“These are all early talks, which started before the lockdown, but with the entire calendar of actors going for a toss, it would be interesting to see how things shape up. Though Ranbir and Deepika will make for a formidable pair in a Bhansali film.”
If all these reports turn out to be true, then Ranbir will be reuniting with SLB after his debut film, Saawariya.
Talking about Ranbir, he just lost his father cum Bollywood veteran: Rishi Kapoor to cancer.
