It was reported earlier that Ranbir Kapoor has been reckoning to explore unchartered territories in terms of his future projects, and also looking forward to work with filmmakers with whom he hasn’t worked before. We are now told that the Sanju actor has finally made his first move.
Apparently, the actor was very impressed with the way Shahid Kapoor starrer Kabir Singh was made and felt that he needed to play a character like that. Wanting to play an edgy character despite the obvious flaws in him, Ranbir reached out to director Sandeep Vanga to see if he had a story that the Saawariya could work in.
“Ranbir has always played characters that are more human in nature. They are not perfect; they have certain flaws. When Ranbir heard about Kabir Singh and saw the film, he felt that this was the kind of cinema he wanted to do even in terms of the execution. Look at Jagga Jasoos, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Barfi, Tamasha, Rockstar or Sanju, the character he plays have every shade to them. They are not the perfect kind of guys. Kabir Singh too wasn’t, and Ranbir was amazed by the execution and sent feelers to Vanga,” says a source.
