It has been more than a year since Ranbir Kapoor has not graced the silver screen. He was last seen in Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju (2018), which was a biopic based on the life of controversial Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt.
The biopic released in June 2018 and since then Kapoor has not appeared in any movie. He is currently working on Dharma Productions’ ambitious project Brahmastra, also featuring Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy in the principal cast. It will be entering theatres in 2020.
Meanwhile, Rumours have been rife of late that filmmaker Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who delivered a massive blockbuster in the form of Kabir Singh (2019), starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani in the lead roles, is next collaborating with Ranbir Kapoor for a movie called Devil. While there has not been any official announcement about the same, producer Bhushan Kumar has said that though he is reuniting with Sandeep Reddy Vanga for another film after Kabir Singh, no actor has been approached as yet.
Bhushan Kumar told a newswire, “We are doing the film. But no one actor has been finalised. He is still writing the script. When it will be ready, we will officially announce it. No one has been approached yet.” It will be really interesting to see whether the makers sign someone else or they may just consider Ranbir Kapoor for the role.
Talking about Kapoor’s projects other than Karan Johar’s Brahmastra, the actor will soon start working on Yash Raj Films’ upcoming dacoit drama Shamshera. To be directed by filmmaker Karan Malhotra, the much-awaited movie also features Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor in lead roles. The actor is also doing a film with hit filmmaker Luv Ranjan, co-starring superstar Ajay Devgn. Rumours are rife that Deepika Padukone may play the female lead in the untitled project.
