New Delhi, June 8 — Looks like Ranveer Singh will replace his contemporary, Ranbir Kapoor, in filmmaker Zoya Akhtar’s next film. Apparently, Ranbir and Kareena Kapoor – real-life cousins – were supposed to play the leads in the movie. But since Ranbir is overbooked till the end of 2013, Ranveer will now play the male lead instead.
“Ranveer has already had a few meetings with the production company (owned by actor Farhan Akhtar and producer Ritesh Sidhwani). Everything seems to be in place for him,” says an industry insider.
“Zoya wants to start the film towards the end of the year. That’s why she is putting everything together to avoid last-minute hiccups.”
Incidentally, Kareena, too, is no longer a part of Zoya’s ambitious project. “It’s a fantastic storyline about a dysfunctional family.
Zoya is kicked about it,” adds the insider. Ranveer is currently busy with Ram Leela and Gunday and his film Lootera is set to release soon. “Ranveer only has Shaad Ali’s Kill Dil in hand. So he can devote ample time for Zoya’s film, in which he has a challenging role,” adds the insider.
Ranveer, meanwhile, recently told a tabloid that he is very impressed with Ranbir’s choice of films and acting prowess.
