Ranbir Kapoor in Dibakar Banerjee’s next?

There is a strong buzz doing the industry rounds that the Barfi! actor is all set to star in the Shanghai director’s next to be produced by Yash Raj Films

Just two weeks ago we told you that Dibakar Banerjee had cut a deal with Aditya Chopra’s production house to co-produce three films, two of which will be directed by Dibakar himself, while his assistant Kanu Behl, who had written the edgy thriller Love Sex Aur Dhoka, will direct the third one. Since then, there has been loads of speculation regarding the first film coming out of the interesting Yash Raj Films-Dibakar combo and also on who will play the protagonist in the film.

Our birdie the buddy who keeps a track of the andar ki khabar just chirped into our ears that the critically acclaimed director has stumbled upon a story for which he’s looking forward to sign Ranbir Kapoor. Our dear friend also insists that Banerjee has already met Ranbir and bounced off the basic plot to him, and guess what, Kapoor Jr has already green-lit the project, which is being given some final touches by the filmmaker.

The Dibakar-Ranbir combination sounds quite unusual but we are sure it will be a film to look forward to. Right BollywoodLifers?
