About two years ago reports indicated that Luv Ranjan will be next working with Ajay Devgn and Ranbir Kapoor as the male leads in his films. Reports also claimed that actress Deepika Padukone will also join the cast to play the female lead. However, the film never went on the screens, and there were no reports of possible development about it.
Last year, reports stated that Deepika Padukone and Ajay Devgn has backed out of the film. Grapevines also suggested that director Ranjan has then shelved the project and will make another film with Ranbir. However, speaking at a trailer launch last year, the director told reporters, “It hasn’t been shelved. The work is going on. There will be a proper announcement… That’s when I will talk about it.”
A source revealed to the publication, “Come this November, Ranbir Kapoor will team up with Shraddha Kapoor to kick off Luv Ranjan’s much-awaited romantic film in Mumbai. It will be a brief schedule to start with, more of a test shoot to get hang of the guidelines, rules and regulations, and safety protocols to be followed for shooting in the midst of a pandemic. Following the Mumbai schedule, the team will fly off abroad for a marathon shoot.”
The source further said that, “It’s all uncertain at this point of time and one can’t promise on exact timelines, but the tentative idea is to wrap up by April. It’s a romantic comedy and shooting shouldn’t take a lot of time unlike other films of Ranbir like Shamshera and Brahmastra. Ranbir will start one more film in April, the modalities of which are being worked upon at the moment.”
