Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor and the Badshah Shah Rukh Khan will apparently be seen in a $ 40 million international project soon? Yes a Russian producer Alexey Petruhin is in talks to cast the actors in the third instalment in the VIY franchise.
Sources informed that, Russian producer Alexey Petruhin has approached the two actors for his much ambitious film VIY: Journey to India. It’s the third instalment in the VIY franchise and the second one starred Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger. VIY 3 will be made on a whopping budget of $40 million.
Confirming the development, Alexey said, “We have approached Shah Rukh Khan to be the lead actor and also the co-producer of the film. We are awaiting confirmation from him. Other actor we have approached is Ranbir Kapoor. We want to bring SRK and Ranbir together.”
He further added, “Journey to India is about bringing Russia and India together. It’s a big movie, and the budget will be around 40 million US dollars. We were looking for an actor who is like a leader in this industry, with his own production house. Like from China, we signed Jackie Chan who is also a producer. So we have approached SRK, and I am sure he will be interested in this type of project because it has world-class appeal and the film will be released all over the world. We are awaiting confirmation from him. The other actor we have approached is Ranbir Kapoor. We want to bring SRK and Ranbir together.”
Ranbir Kapoor has worked with all the three Khan’s of Bollywood. But rarely were they full fledged roles. Foe if in some Ranbir had cameo there were times the Khan’s were in a cameo in Ranbir’s films. So if the two actors do give a nod to this project then it will be like a dream come true for their fans.
