that Ashotush Gowariker is fascinated by period dramas. He is the man behind
Jodhaa Akbar, Lagaan and the most-recent Mohenjo Daro and looks like he looking
at exploring another chapter in history.
Reports suggest that the filmmaker is keen on making a film on a historical battle that took place between the 16th and 18th century. What’s more, it is said that he has approached Arjun Kapoor to play the lead role and is in advanced talks with Sanjay Dutt for a pivotal role in the chronicled war saga.
Kapoor, in an interview with a leading daily spoke about how he is always at
war with Ranbir and Ranveer when it comes to his favourite sport- football!
“This time when Mumbai plays Pune, Ranbir and I will be at war (laughs). Ranbir and I can’t be friends for now, we are in for a war, something like a Battle Royale (laughs again). All our friends will have to wear the Mumbai jersey in the first half and the Pune one for the second half. It’s going to be a great game and I would rather have the game have the value, than Ranbir and me. We both are football fanatics and we love the sport and the fact that we own teams. But yes, I can assure you that the friendly banter is going to be there. There will be an edge to those games for sure.”
Talking on the buzz about Ranveer Singh acquiring a football team as well, the Mubarakan actor said, “Ranveer and I have a big issue between us. We support two rival teams. Gunday mein hum same ladki se pyaar kar baithe the, personal life mein we are the same people and are passionate about similar things. But the one big differentiating factor is he’s Arsenal and I’m Chelsea. That divide will never be crossed (smiles).”
Coming back to
the story, let’s wait and watch to see if Arjun and Sanjay do end up being
directed by Ashutosh.
