It certainly looks like it, because we hear that after Barfi! the director wants to sign his star actor on for his next film
Anurag Basu and Ranbir Kapoor came together last year for Barfi! and the film did superbly well, though unexpectedly so. In fact, the Ranbir-Priyanka Chopra-Ileana D’Cruz starrer was even touted as India’s official entry to the Oscars, though it did not make the final cut. So it wouldn’t’t be an exaggeration if we said that Barfi! has been by far the most successful film Basu has made as a director. And while he is already working with Ranbir for the second time in Jagga Jasoos, we hear that the talented filmmaker wants to sign his favourite actor on for yet another film. Looks Anurag just cannot get enough of Rishi Kapoor’s ladla beta, hai na?
And we wouldn’t be surprised if Katrina Kaif’s alleged boyfriend (or is it fiance now?) agrees to do the film. After all, his experiment with Abhinav Kashyap resulted in a disaster called Besharam. So, career wise, it would be a smart move for Ranbir to stick with the director who knows how to get the best out of him as an actor, wethinks.
As for us and the audience alike, if we can watch a good film, it does not matter who is in it, but we would love RK and Anurag to come together again…and again!
