Buzz has it that Ranveer Singh, who was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ₹ 300+ crore film Padmaavat (2018), is set to sign his first film with renowned Bollywood filmmaker, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra who is known for movies such as Aks (2001), Rang De Basanti (2006) and Delhi 6 (2009). According to reports, the duo recently met at Mehra’s office and discussed the project.
Reportedly, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has two scripts ready for two new films. While one of the ventures revolves around the game of Kabaddi, the other one is about a bond shared between a father and son duo. However, it is still unclear as to which project Mehra is planning to commence first.
“Ranveer and Rakeysh met and discussed about working together. The filmmaker has bounced off the ideas to Ranveer, but nothing has been locked yet. They are going to have a few more meetings before they zero in on the film,” says a source.
Talking about Ranveer Singh’s forthcoming projects, the actor has a lot on his platter. He will next be seen in filmmaker Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy. Co-starring Alia Bhatt, the movie is scheduled to open in theatres on 14th February, 2019. Apart from that, Singh also stars in Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty’s joint production, Simmba. His next will be 83, to be directed by hit filmmaker Kabir Khan, wherein he plays Kapil Dev.
