Ranveer Singh starrer 83 is currently on the big screens but unfortunately, the film hasn’t shown the magic which was indeed required by looking at the high anticipated promotions. Well, after a not so good result at the box office, the film’s star Ranveer Singh has decided not to sign any biopic henceforth.
A source close to Ranveer informs, “Ranveer has been offered several bio-pics including Meghna Gulzar’s Sam Maneckshaw film which he said no to (and which Vicky Kaushal is now doing). After Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani, Padmaavat, and now Kabir Khan’s 83 (where he plays Kapil Dev), Ranveer will stay off real-life characters for a while.”
The issue with 83 is that it did not perform well in mass pockets (read: tier 2 and 3 cities), where, surprisingly, audiences flocked to single screens and low-end multiplexes for a dubbed Telugu film like Pushpa during the same time frame, despite the fact that the Allu Arjun-starrer had released a week before the Ranveer Singh-starrer.
On the other hand, Ranveer Singh has a number of exciting projects in his kitty. YRF’s Jayeshbhai Jordaar, Rohit Shetty’s Cirkus, and Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani are some of his other future ventures.
