Can Ranbir Kapoor be a math genius?

Anurag Basu apparently thinks he can, and might even sign him up to play one

Barfi! director Anurag Basu is already planning his second film with Ranbir Kapoor. Yes, it’s a biopic, but it’s got nothing to do with legendary singer Kishore Kumar. The latest buzz in the industry is that Anurag is planning to make a film on math genius Anand Kumar.

Before you ask, ‘Who is Anand Kumar?’, let us refresh your memory. Anand is the math expert who devised a programme called ‘Super 30’ to educate economically backward students in Bihar free of cost. The 38-year-old has been doing this quietly for several years now. He first gained Bollywood recognition when Prakash Jha based Amitabh Bachchan’s character in Aarakshan on him. Now Anand has impressed Anurag. Rumour mongers state that the director has been making regular trips to Patna and has gathered enough information to make a film on the genius. When Anurag mentioned this to his Barfi! hero, Ranbir immediately expressed his interest in the project. This seems to be a win-win situation all around. Anand will get recognition, which will help him teach even more students. Anurag is more than glad to have a talented and commercially viable actor to play the lead role. And Ranbir too, as he has found more success in doing offbeat roles than he has in chocolate boy roles (remember the crash and burn of Bachna Ae Haseeno?). We think this is a much better idea than a biopic on Kishore Kumar, don’t you agree?
