Ranbir Kapoor to star in his filmmaker friend Binoy Gandhi’s next?


Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor’s last few films may not have done very well at the box office, but the actor remains a favourite for filmmakers. According to reports, the ‘Bombay Velvet’ actor has been approached for film by his childhood friend Binoy Gandhi.

Binoy who is making his debut as a director with Jee Bhar Ke Jee Le’, is working on a light-hearted script for his friend Ranbir. Binoy has earlier assisted Kunal Kohli in ‘Fanaa’ and Siddharth Anand in ‘Ta Ra Ram Pum’, ‘Darna Mana Hai’, ‘Teri Meri Kahani’ etc.

"I have discussed the idea with Ranbir and he liked it. It is a light-hearted film where the character of Ranbir believes in spreading happiness. It (film) is on the lines of what Rajkumar Hirani makes," Binoy told PTI.

"Ranbir and I were childhood friends. The great thing about him is that he has not changed even a bit after achieving so much success," Binoy added. 

Binoy also said that the film will not have a romantic angle. "There would not be a romantic angle in the film but the main character would have a best friend," said Binoy. 

Binoy is working on the script and will complete it y February next year. "Once I am done with the film, I will narrate the story to Ranbir. I am hopeful that he will like it," he added.

Binoy is launching filmmaker J P Dutta's daughter Nidhi and veteran actress Nafisa Ali’s son Ajit Sodhi in ‘Jee Bhar Ke Jee Le’. "We are working on the post production of the film. Hopefully the first look of the film would be out by mid-December. The film should release next year in January," he said.

Ranbir will be soon seen in Imtiaz Ali's ‘Tamasha’ opposite his ex-flame Deepika Padukone. The film is scheduled to hit screens on November 27.

He is currently shooting for Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma among others. He is also starring in Anurag Basu’s ‘Jagga Jasoos’ opposite his real life girlfriend Katrina Kaif.
