Ranbir Kapoor – The next super star?
Ranbir Kapoor , the son of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh, is the latest Bollywood entrant from the famous Kapoor clan.
What better way to start one’s acting career than with a Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie? Yes, Ranbir has got a dream start to his Bollywood career. He will make his debut in Bhansali’s project Saanvariya , which also introduces Anil Kapoor’s daughter Sonam Kapoor .
Even as Ranbir is still busy shooting for his first movie, talks have begun to cast him in more projects. His dad, Rishi Kapoor, is looking forward to revive RK Films banner with a movie starring Ranbir in the lead role.
Rishi has already made a request to Rajkumar Hirani ( Lage Raho Munnabhai director) to direct a film for RK Banner. While Hirani has declined to make the film, he has agreed to cast the 24-year-old Ranbir in his next movie which will not be a Munnabhai series.
The film, yet untitled, will be Hirani’s take on the present day education system. It will be about striving to be successful, and how the joy of learning is gone in modern education.
Hirani is presently working on the first draft of the film’s script with Abhijat Joshi. The project will go on the floors in the first quarter of 2007.
On a different front, talks are on to rope in Ranbir and Sonam for the lead roles in the sequel to the yesteryear’s hit ‘Mr. India’.
The sequel will be directed by Nikhil Advani, the director of Kal Ho Na Ho . The film might also mark the comeback of Sridevi and Anil Kapoor .
However, the cast is still to be finalized.
In the meantime, Ranbir continues to grab headlines, partly because of his good looks and partly because of the compliments that keep coming intermittently from Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
