The Kapoor boy seems to be following in the footsteps of grandfather Raj Kapoor as he takes his first step towards direction. Ranbir Kapoor is all set to shoot the behind-the-scenes feature The Making of Barfee, that will appear on the film's DVD, reports Mid Day.
The film would star Ranbir, Priyanka Chopra and south actress Ileana D'Cruz.
A source informed the tabloid, "He is super-excited about directing the segment. It was director Anurag Basu's idea. He explained to RK that it should be made from an actor's perspective. He wants him to showcase his sensibility on cinema. Ranbir has assisted Sanjay Leela Bhansali during Black and has a good technical knowledge of film-making."
The actor will go behind the camera for shooting his special project, when the film will go on floors later this week. The star will be provided with a special camera for the same.
The source continued, "He's going to have fun with both Priyanka and Ileana since they know him for his pranks. They jokingly complained that Ranbir would definitely pull some stunt on them."
Film's producer Siddharth Roy Kapoor of UTV is however not willing to spill the beans as yet. He maintains, "Nothing's been confirmed yet. But yes, we were toying with the idea as it would be interesting to see the making of the film from an actor's point of view. It hasn't been tried so far."
