We saw Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone together five years ago in Tamasha. Ever since then we have been waiting to see the jodi on the big screen again. As a RanDeep fan, all I can say is that their chemistry is absolutely magical. And this magic might happen soon. ‘Coz rumour has it that Sanjay Leela Bhansali may cast Ranbir and Deepika Padukone in his next movie, Baiju Bawra, a remake of the 1952 period drama.
Baiju Bawra is a story of a young musician who challenges the famous Tansen in Mughal Emperor Akbar’s court. Reports also suggest that Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s first choice for the pivotal roles were Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgan. Ranbir and SLB worked together 13 years ago in RK’s debut, Saawariya.
“Ranveer and SLB were discussing to collaborate on a film, but right now that can’t happen. Bhansali will reunite with Ranbir on this one. There are two main male leads in the film, one is of Baiju and the other of Tansen. RK will be playing Baiju’s role in the period drama. Recently, he even went to meet the filmmaker at his office where he verbally agreed to do the project. The actor’s team is now working out the modalities,” a source close to Sanjay Leela Bhansali revealed to a media portal.
“They aren’t locking his dates as of now because they need to lock the other actors for the film and if all goes well, the film will only go on floors in the second half of 2021. Bhansali will wrap up work on Gangubai first and then plan the pre-production for this. RK, on the other hand, will start shooting for Luv Ranjan’s film and then begins Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s next around early 2021,” he added.
Apart from Baiju Bawra, director Luv Ranjan has reportedly signed Ranbir and DP for his next film. Ranbir will also be seen in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra along with his lady love Alia Bhatt, and Deepika will be seen sharing the screen with her husband in Kabir Khan’s 83.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is currently working on Gangubai Kathiawadi with Alia Bhatt but the shooting has been stalled because of the pandemic.
We’re super excited to see these two! Are you?
