Anurag Basu to not work with Ranbir Kapoor again?

The director said Ranbir can’t work with him in all his films

Director Anurag Basu and Ranbir Kapoor share a great rapport but the filmmaker says he cannot wait for the actor to star in all his films despite their friendship.

After their award-winning collaboration for Barfi! in 2012, the director-actor duo are again teaming up for Jagga Jasoos and the Kishore Kumar biopic.

“Ranbir and I share a great rapport. We connect as an actor and director. After Barfi!, we are doing Jagga Jasoos whose rigorous shoot we will start from November,” Basu told PTI in an interview.

“Then there is Kishore Kumar biopic, which will go on floors soon after Jagga Jasoos is finished. I am yet unsure about my untitled project because Ranbir has other films as well. Even I cannot wait for him every time. I might have to take some other actor for it,” Basu added.

There were reports earlier this month that Basu had signed his fourth project with Ranbir but the filmmaker set the record straight on Twitter by saying these stories came from his fake Facebook account.

Jagga Jasoos, a Bollywood sleuth drama, stars Ranbir and Katrina Kaif in leading roles. The movie is expected to hit theatres in May next year. Ranbir is also producing the film with the director.

Basu started his film career with thrillers like Saaya, Kuch Toh Hai and Murder but he hit the bull’s eye with Gangster and followed its success with Life in a Metro.

The director says he is going slow with his film career because he feels he has worked hard during his initial days.

He now wants to focus more on his personal life.

“People often complain that after Barfi! I have not made anything in these two years. But I must tell you that have worked hard a lot during the early days of my career. There were times when I used to direct two films in a year. I am going slow now and it’s a conscious decision. I am focusing on other things of life like my family. I and my wife have an NGO and we are busy with its work,” he said.

The Kites helmer is currently enjoying his stint as a judge on Zee TV’s reality show Zee Cinestars Ki Khoj.

“It’s a good platform for kids to show their talents and get a chance to have a career in showbiz. The show is like an acting school and we are teachers and judges to them. I am amazed to see the talent of these youngsters. If needed, I will also give them a chance to act in my films,” he said.
