Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Baiju Bawra has to be one of the most-anticipate films currently. The film is supposed to star Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone and Ajay Devgn in key roles. Ranbir Kapoor was reportedly the new addition to the cast but with his busy schedule and different projects that he is working on, the actor is having a second thought about giving a nod to SLB’s film.
Kapoor already has another similar Dharma project in his kitty so he is confused whether he should do SLB’s film or not. The actor has expressed his concerns to Bhansali and his team as well. If the Barfi actor opts out of the film, it is being said that the makers of the film have an eye on Kartik Aaryan to replace Kapoor.
A source close to the development revealed, “Ranbir has expressed his confusion to Bhansali and the team as well. He is not sure of Baiju Bawra and with another Dharma project in his kitty; RK doesn’t seem to be keen anymore on working with SLB again.
Not many know that Ranbir Kapoor did not have a great experience working with him during Saawariya and they have never done a film after that. So it’s most likely that Ranbir is going to opt-out of the project, although nothing was ever locked on papers.” Recently, Aaryan has even been spotted getting in and out of Bhansali’s office quite a few times and it could only lead to the conclusion that the actor might indeed be a part of Bhansali’s film.
This will be Padukone and Bhatt’s first film together. Bhatt is set to star opposite Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan in Ayan Mukerji’s action fantasy film, Brahmāstra. Padukone and Kapoor have previously played the lead roles in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Bachna Ae Haseeno, and Tamasha. As for Ranbir Kapoor, he also has an untitled film with Shraddha Kapoor in his kitty.
