Ranbir Kapoor to star in ‘Ishq’ remake

The Rockstar actor is all set to play the lead in Vikram Kumar’s Hindi remake of his Telugu hit

South director Vikram Kumar’s Telugu film Ishq starring Nitin and Nithya Menon has been doing extremely well at the box office. And now the director is gearing up to make the same film in Hindi, for which he has approached Ranbir Kapoor. Given the original film’s rising popularity in the south, Ranbir has given a nod to work in the Hindi remake. The 29-year-old actor will play the lead role in this romantic flick.

Vikram debuted in Bollywood in 2009 with the suspense thriller 13B, starring R Madhavan and Neetu Chandra. After his successful debut with a thriller, Vikram is now doing a love story-cum-family entertainer with Ishq. Apparently, a big production house offered to do the remake of the movie in Hindi and Vikram immediately thought of approaching Ranbir for the lead role. Vikram has also confirmed Ranbir’s presence in the film and is now in the process of finalising the female lead and the rest of the cast. Given Ranbir’s unbelievable popularity and his chocolate boy image, he’s the perfect choice for the film wethinks. We hope the Hindi version of Ishq will achieve the same popularity as the original film. Would you like to see Ranbir in the lead?
