The Jism 2 director wants to remake Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin with the Rockstar actor. But why?
Fresh from the success of her erotic thriller Jism 2, director Pooja Bhatt seems to be eager to work with Ranbir Kapoor. Of course, the project is still only one of Pooja’s many dreams, one that may or may not materialise. In a recent interview she said, “I would love to remake Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin with Alia (Bhatt) and Ranbir Kapoor in the lead. I think if there is anyone who could take my place in that film, then it is Alia. And as far as Aamir’s character is concerned, I think Ranbir is the best choice.”
Casting Alia, who is Pooja’s step-sister, could probably be the easiest thing to do, but the challenge would be to get Ranbir’s approval and dates. The Rockstar dude has his diary full for a few years. After Barfi!, he has committed to Abhinav Kashyap’s Besharam. Then he will be doing Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet. News is that he has also agreed to do Dibakar Banerjee’s next. Will Pooja wait till RK Jr has completed all these films? Will Ranbir agree to do a film with the Bhatts? Watch this space for more dope on the remake of Dil Hai Ki Maanta Nahin…
