Baiju Bawra, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, has been generating news for a variety of reasons. As many people know, Ranbir Kapoor, who made his Bollywood debut with SLB’s Saawariya, was initially offered Baiju Bawra, which he declined. Following Ranbir Kapoor’s departure, it was speculated that Kartik Aaryan will take his place in the film. When he was recently observed at Bhansali’s workplace, the rumour mill began to spin.
According to a recent report in ETimes, Ranveer Singh, not Ranbir Kapoor or Kartik Aaryan, is now working on the project. That’s right, you read that correctly. Baiju Bawra has been assigned to Ranveer Singh.
As per the report, “It’s Ranveer Singh who has been finalised. An official announcement is in the offing, but yes, a few modalities yet remain to be worked. Probably post all that, Bhansali will declare. But as things stand today, it is Ranveer.”
Ranveer Singh and Sanjay Leela Bhansali have previously collaborated on three films: Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani, and Padmaavat. In all of his films, Ranveer Singh has given outstanding performances. Following that, the actor has a slew of intriguing projects in the works. ’83, Jayeshbhai Jordaar, Cirkus, and Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani are among his upcoming films.
When it comes to Ranbir Kapoor, he has a number of exciting projects in the works. Brahmastra, directed by Ayan Mukerji, will feature the actor. Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, and Mouni Roy also star in the film. Ranbir also has Shamshera and Luv Ranjan’s untitled project on his plate. Kartik Aaryan is now in the headlines for beginning the filming of Ekta Kapoor’s Freddy.
