Contrary to the rumours that the Rockstar actor had walked out of the Dabangg director’s next, Kapoor Jr confirms that he will act ‘shameless’ in Kashyap’s next
We found it hard to believe that Viacom 18 had pulled out of Abhinav Kashyap’s Besharam. After all it is one production house that is backing many ambitious projects and has become one of the names to reckon with, as far as Bollywood is concerned. Our disbelief was also fueled by the fact that Besharam had Ranbir Kapoor playing the title role, and he is the hottest property in B-town these days. No doubt he is not in the league of the Khans yet, but he is definitely a major draw at the BO.
RK Jr, who is busy promoting his forthcoming film, Barfi! these days, didn’t react to the talk about him walking out of Besharam. But we were relieved when he recently said, “Besharam is Abhinav Kashyap’s film and I have not left it. These are just rumours.” Naysayers are still going around town saying that the film has been shelved, and there has been no statement from Viacom 18 yet. But the fact is that Kashyap is busy looking for a leading lady for Ranbir. While any babe would go out on a limb to share screen space with the Kapoor scion, we hear that the director is considering the possibility of casting a newbie.
