Ranbir himself has confirmed the news! Read on to know the full story...
While working on Barfi!, Ranbir Kapoor and Anurag Basu decided to make a biopic on Kishore Kumar. It seemed like an interesting project at the time. But now it looks like the film will never be made. Ranbir confirms, “That film is shelved. We wanted to make that film. It was one of the most interesting stories Dada (Basu) and I had in mind. But it didn’t work out and we aren’t making it anymore.” There was not just one, but a few major problems which led to this development.
Ranbir reveals, “Firstly, we didn’t get the cast we wanted for the film. Then there were issues with the script. Family members were not happy with the script and it was just not working out. So all these factors played spoilsport. Otherwise, it could have been a great film.”
But there is another biopic that Ranbir is gearing up for. The film on the life of Sanjay Dutt which goes on floors later next year or early 2017, directed by Rajkumar Hirani. After Ranbir wraps up Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Ayan Mukerji’s superhero film. “I have to remodel my body structure to look like Sanjay Dutt in the film. So we will be working on that. I don’t know how much weight and muscles I have to pile on, but there was a phase in his life when he bulked up, was bald, so Raju Sir and I will sit and discuss all that soon.”
