It is common knowledge in the film industry that Ranbir Kapoor and his mentor Sanjay Leela Bhansali had a fall-out after Saawariya.They vowed never to work together again.
But now this may change sooner rather than later.Ranbir’s better-half Alia Bhatt who is Bhansali’s blue-eyed girl after Gangubai Kathiawadi and who has already been signed for a second feature film with Bhansali,is trying to bring her soul-mate and her second-favourite filmmaker Bhansali (second to Karan Johar) together.
Insiders say Alia who has been signed to play the female lead in Bhansali’s Baiju Bawra is keen to get Ranbir on board as the male lead.
Ranveer Singh has already been more-or-less finalized for Baiju Bawra’s male lead, though he hasn’t signed the deal as yet. Prior to Ranveer, Ranbir was being mentioned as a possible candidate for the lead in Baiju Bawra.
If Ranbir replaces Ranveer in Baiju Bawra this would not be the first occasion for such a switchover. Years ago Ranbir replaced Ranveer overnight in Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet.
