News has been doing the rounds that Karan Johar has been planning a period drama. And from what we’ve heard, Ranbir Kapoor, who’s a part of Dharma Productions’s next, Yeh Jawaani Hain Deewani, will play the lead role in the film. Surprisingly, Karan’s close friend Shah Rukh Khan, who is also a perennial feature in his films, isn’t likely to star in it.
A source reveals, “Shah Rukh and Karan are very close. But as far as this film goes, there are chances that SRK may not be a part of it. They’ve been working around the details of the project all this while, but it looks like SRK isn’t on board for this project at least.”
While SRK may not be a part of the film, there’s another Khan who is likely to play the second lead. The source says, “Saif Ali Khan, in all likelihood, will be seen playing the second lead in this period drama. Rather than calling it the second lead, let’s term it as a well-fleshed-out cameo. The hero of the film is Ranbir.”
As for Ranbir’s leading lady, the source says, “The film is still in its early stages, so there’s still plenty of time to think of who they want to cast.”Who will be Wreck-It Ralph... Ranbir or Arjun Kapoor?
Over the past few years, Bollywood actors lending their voices to Hindi-dubbed versions of animated films have become quite popular, with even A-listers lapping up the opportunity. If sources are to be believed, Arjun Kapoor or Ranbir Kapoor may be next in line to join the list. They’ve both been approached to dub for the lead character in upcoming Disney film, Wreck-It Ralph. RANBIR OR ARJUN?
Besharam to go on floors on December 10
Abhinav Kashyap's much awaited Ranbir Kapoor starrer Besharam will finally take off with a song sequence on December 10 in Mumbai. The song will feature Ranbir along with the film's leading lady Pallavi Sharda. The film is also in the news as the makers have apparently managed a coup of sorts by getting both Ranbir and his dad Rishi Kapoor on board.
