There’s been rumours for months that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has approached Ranbir Kapoor to play the lead in his next film project titled Baiju Bawra. In October this year, reports came out from anonymous sources that no star cast has been finalised for the film but the buzz around Ranbir doing it was still going on and on.
On December 24, movie critic Rajeev Masand uploaded an exclusive interview with Ranbir Kapoor on his official YouTube channel where he asked the actor, whether he’s doing Baiju Bawra with Sanjay Leela Bhansali or not? In reply to that question, in a very polite manner Ranbir said
“No, it’s a complete rumour. I haven’t been offered any film from him.”
The clarification fans were looking for months has finally been said by the actor himself. This news made big headlines because the history shared between Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Ranbir Kapoor is known to everyone. So, them joining hands once again for a film is definitely going to be big thing for the industry.
One more rumour that surfaced on the internet was that Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone are leading the cast for Baiju Bawra. This news made fans really very excited because this trio has been on the headlines of every major gossip column in the country.
Baiju Bawra is a remake of the 1952 Hindi movie of the same name which stars Bharat Bhushan and Meena Kumari in the lead. Currently, there’s been no such official confirmation regarding the filming or casting for the film.
