Sandeep Reddy Vanga made an entry into Bollywood with Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer hit Kabir Singh.
The Telugu filmmaker who remade Arjun Reddy as Kabir Singh will now be working with Ranbir Kapoor for his next project.
According to a Mumbai Mirror report, in a meeting with Bhushan Kumar, Vanga discussed his story idea which the former liked and both decided to cast Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role.
Bhushan Kumar had also produced Vanga’s maiden Bollywood entry, Kabir Singh.
“Ranbir has liked the concept and they will be meeting this week to discuss it further. Of course, even if Ranbir gives the nod, they will not be able to roll immediately because he has to wrap up two films, Brahmastra and Shamshera, first and is committed to a third, Luv Ranjan’s next with Ajay(Devgn) and Deepika(Padukone), which is being produced by Luv and Bhushan,” Mirror quoted a source close to the film’s development.
In an earlier interview to Mirror, Sandeep Reddy Vanga had said that he was “scripting a crime drama.” with a “pan-India” film in mind. That could be Reddy’s next with Ranbir Kapoor, as reports go.
Meanwhile, Ranbir is working on Shamshera and Brahmastra, two massive projects, that have both been in making for quite some time now.
