Rumour has it that Ranbir Kapoor has been finalised alongside Sharman Joshi for Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s (VVC) next. The film in question is titled ‘Chithiyaan’ (Letters) and is set to be a romantic film. However, VVC is will not be stepping into the director’s shoes, but produce this one instead.
The last tine VVC directed a romantic film was back in 1998, in the Bobby Deol starrer Kareeb, he later produced the 2005 romantic Tagore novel Parineeta, starring Saif Ali Khan. Whilst Kareeb bombed at the box office, Parineeta went on to do well.
Although VVC still has to decide on a director for Chithiyaan, Tanuja Chandra (Sangharsh, Sur) has reportedly been working on the script and VVC still also has to zero in on the leading ladies for the film.
When asked to clarify the rumour, VVC responded that his production company was in discussions and would make a formal announcement when ready.
Whilst it would be a great feather in Ranbir’s cap to star in a VVC film, until then he has a string of high profile films to look forward to which includes the upcoming Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar releasing on 11th November.
