Ranbir Kapoor To Star In Rajkumar Hirani's Upcoming Film; Contrary To Buzz, It's Not The Sequel Of Aamir Khan Starrer PK- Report
Rajkumar Hirani helmed Sanju starring Ranbir Kapoor, made the young actor part of the 300 crore club after Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. Now as per reports in Pinkvilla, this director-actor duo is said to be collaborating for one more project and it is not a sequel to Aamir Khan starrer PK that had RK in a cameo. The plot of the movie happens to be Hirani’s favourite one, a social comedy. The filmmaker was supposed to begin filming it immediately after Sanju, but destiny had something else planned for him.

The source informs, “Raju has a bank of ideas ready to roll, and while working on Sanju, he had discussed one particular plot with Ranbir, which the actor fell in love with. In-fact, that was supposed to be Hirani’s immediate next after Sanju at one point of time, as Shah Rukh Khan had multiple film commitments lined up.” Followed by the actor shuffling his schedule and then while his conversation with Hirani, he was presented with two ideas.

While one of the ideas is a two –hero film, something on the Munnabhai lines, with SRK and a young actor sharing screen space, the next idea is a immigration story set with the backdrop of Canada. While SRK was kicked about both the ideas he is willing to take the immigration idea on the first spot. Hirani also shared the immigration story with the Kapoor lad, but as the film demanded someone senior, Ranbir feels SRK is an apt choice.

“Hirani had also discussed the immigration story with Ranbir on a personal front, that he is developing at present for Shah Rukh Khan. RK had loved that one too, but, the story demanded a senior actor. Hirani had expressed his idea of making it with Shah Rukh Khan, and Ranbir felt that the actor would fit the character like a hand in glove. Ranbir has gone around in his friend circles saying that the SRK - Raju Hirani film will be a game changer for Bollywood,” added the source.

So far the filmmaker is said to be working on the second bit of the movie with SRK, also as per an insider, the filmmaker never takes his film on floors, until he is thoroughly done with his writing material. The source further adds, “He has had multiple drafts of the script, but still finding the ideal closure to the story, which is resulting in delays. Once the script is locked, the shoot wouldn’t take long, as the maker intends to wrap it up in a quick span of five to six months. He just has to execute all that’s written on paper.” After wrapping SRK’s film, Hirani will be working on the idea presented to Ranbir Kapoor, also the source added the filmmaker is planning with Ranbir for more than one film.

“He is definitely doing one more film with Ranbir, and it’s just a matter of time. Right now, all energies are on developing and taking his next on floors. Once that’s out of system, will the Ranbir film come to the forefront. The actor has already said a yes to the idea, and will adjust the dates of Hirani, as and when, the director is ready to roll,” the source informed.
