Ranbir Kapoor in Rohit Dhawan’s next, ‘Bad Boyz’?
David Dhawan’s son Rohit, director of the Akshay Kumar-John Abraham-starrer Desi Boyz, is reportedly planning a new film with the Rockstar dude. Will good boy RK become a baddie in this one?
It seems that the Rockstar actor is the toast of the season. Everyone who is anyone in B-town wants to work with him. The latest filmmaker to this list is his long-time friend Rohit Dhawan. We hear that Rohit, who debuts as a director with Desi Boyz, has already planned a series around Boyz. His next film is titled Bad Boyz and he has unofficially cast Ranbir in it. In a recent interview Ranbir had said, “I would want to do an out-and-out negative film. I want to play with characters, I want to explore myself,” So his doing anything about boys (or boyz) that are not good doesn’t really come as a surprise. Meanwhile, Rohit has allegedly not yet decided on who will play the other bad boy in his film, but a li’l birdie told us that he is trying hard to get Imran Khan on board. Well if that happens, it will be a huge casting coup for the young filmmaker. The Ranbir-Imran camaraderie is awesome - though they are not friends, as they have clarified very recently – and their comic timing together is spot on, so it would be a great thing to see them share screen space. As for the girls in this film, rumour runs rife that Rohit wants to cast fresh faces because he is going through a tough time trying to please the leading ladies of Desi Boyz, Deepika Padukone and Chitrangda Singh. We are now looking forward to the official announcement about Rohit’s next. Then we will know whether there is any credibility to this story!
