Ranbir Kapoor refuses to play Kareena’s brother
Here is a disheartening news for those who are eagerly waiting to see Kareena Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor sharing screen space for the first time. Grapevine buzzed that both of the actors refused to play brother-sister role in Zoya Akhtar’s next. Zoya is keen to cast Kareena and Ranbir for her next project but her dream of casting the two versatile stars shattered when Kareena turned down the offer after Ranbir walked out of the movie.
Kareena is keen to play Ranbir’s sister in Zoya’s next but when the ‘Barfi!’ actor walked away from the project, she also refused to act because she is not keen to play any other actor actor's sister other the Ranbir. The role of her brother later went to Ranveer Singh.
A source said, “These top actresses at the end of the day want to act with a Kapoor, Khan, Kumar or Roshan. Where is their own stardom if they are so dependent on the male actors to get hits? When has a top actress worked with a rank newcomer based on the strength of a script or a good director?” Any answers, Kat, Bebo, PC?
To bring the real cousin brother and sister was a challenge for all the Bollywood directors and Zoya Akhtar has taken up the challenge but at the last moment Ranbir Kapoor walked out due to some unknown reasons.
A source close to Zoya Akhtar says, “It is a fantastic story about a dysfunctional family and Zoya is quite kicked about it. She is putting everything up as she does not want any last-minute hiccups.”
Ranveer Singh’s wish to work alongside Kareena Kapoor shattered after she walked out of the project.
Zoya soon finds a perfect lead for her film.
