Rumors of Ranbir Kapoor staring in the the Telegu remake Magadheera are hereby quelled. Ranbir turned down the role due to his schedule filming his upcoming projects, Rockstar and Barfee.
His leading lady in the mythological film was to be Katrina Kaif, however, there is no word on whether Kat has accepted or denied the role.
While many fans may mourn the lost reunion of the stars of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and Raajneeti, it seems the role was offered to a few others before Ranbir. Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan allegedly said no first.
The title of the film Magadheera translates to “he-man” in Telugu. The actor would thus have to bulk up quite a bit for the role.
While this project may be in the past for Ranbir, we wait with anticipation for his upcoming films.
