Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s adaptation of the musical story, which was first filmed by Vikram Bhatt’s grandfather, the distinguished Vijay Bhatt, stars Ranveer Singh in and as Baiju Bawra.
According to rumours, Ranbir Kapoor has turned down Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s musical love story Baiju Bawra. Sources close to Bhansali denied stating, “Ranbir has not been offered Baiju Bawra. The only time Ranbir turned down a role in a Bhansali film was when he was offered Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai starrer Guzaarish. Bhansali offered him the role that was eventually played by Aditya Roy Kapur.”
Talking about the casting of the film Baiju Bawra, the source close to Bhansali productions was quoted as saying by a portal, “It is Ranveer Singh who was being seriously considered for the part. Bhansali’s focus was on the casting of Heera Mandi. But now since erroneous information on the male casting of Baiju Bawra was being leaked out, Bhansali has decided to announce Ranveer Singh in the ambitious grand musical’s title role.”
Earlier, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Ranveer Singh have collaborated in three films- Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat. Like everyone knows, Ranveer delivered phenomenal performances in all the movies.
