Sanjay Leela Bhansali is working on another big project than Alia Bhatt starrer Gangubai Kathiawadi. The another film is titled Baiju Bawra which is a remake of the yesteryear film of the same title. The lead of this film is yet to be announced but if reports are ro be believed then Ranbir Kapoor came on board for this magnum opus.
A source revealed to a leading daily, “Ranveer and SLB were discussing to collaborate on a film, but right now that can’t happen. Bhansali will reunite with Ranbir Kapoor on this one. There are two main male leads in the film; one is of Baiju and the other of Tansen. RK will be playing Baiju’s role in the period drama. Recently, he even went to meet the filmmaker at his office where he verbally agreed to do the project. The actor’s team is now working out the modalities.”
“They aren’t locking his dates as of now because they need to lock the other actors for the film and if all goes well, the film will only go on floors in the second half of 2021. Bhansali will wrap up work on Gangubai first and then plan the pre-production for this. RK, on the other hand, will start shooting for Luv Ranjan’s film and then begins Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s next around early 2021,” the source added.
On the work front, Ranbir Kapoor also has Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s project and Luv Ranjan’s next.
