Anurag Basu Says That He Is Very Committed For The Kishore Kumar Biopic With Ranbir Kapoor
Rumors were rife that Anurag Basu had roped in Ranbir Kapoor for the Kishore Kumar biopic. Here is the update about it!
Ranbir Kapoor and Anurag Basu have had a decent working collaboration where they both did two films together, ie, Barfi and Jagga Jasoos. While one was a super hit film which has become iconic in today’s times, Jagga Jasoos, despite having great content, failed to create impact on the box-office. We do love this actor-director jodi for sure and there were numerous reports that Anurag wanted RK to feature in the Kishore Kumar biopic as a lead since long.
In a recent interview to Filmfare, Anurag was quoted saying,
“The Kishore Kumar biopic will happen for sure. Ranbir Kapoor and I are committed to it. But it depends on my availability and his dates. Ranbir’s my first choice.”
Well, this means that the project is still alive and Ranbir might as well play the titular role if all goes well. We can’t wait to see Kapoor stepping into the shoes of the legendary actor-singer Kishore Kumar. Currently, Basu is working on his next titled ‘Ludo’ which stars Rajkummar Rao, Aditya Roy Kapur, Abhishek Bachchan, Sanya Malhotra etc.
