Rumour mills in B-town are working overtime with news that Ranbir Kapoor was quite intimidated by the idea of doing a project with King Khan. Yes ladies and gentlemen you heard right, a director had indeed approached the latest outing from the Kapoor legacy to do a film with Shah Rukh Khan. And what’s more is that the director was none other than Karan Johar.
It seems that Ranbir and Shah Rukh are the two most popular names in current times and so wanting to go with the times Karan had approached Ranbir with not one or two scripts but three scripts all to be made under the Dharma Productions banner. One of these scripts had Shah Rukh and Ranbir starring together but sadly to Karan’s dismay Ranbir refused the offer.
The buzz is that Ranbir is not quite ready to go head to head with SRK in a film. The actor is said to be choosing only solo hero projects and won’t be making any multi-starrer films with big leagues such as SRK, until he’s become more mature in terms of industry years. The exception being Prakash Jha’s Rajneeti, which opens on June 4th.
Only time will tell if this was indeed a smart move by Ranbir or the denial of an amazing opportunity.
