Sanjay Gupta wants to cast this Kapoor lad in a movie called as ‘Bigde Nawab’

Filmmaker Sanjay Gupta who is geared up for his January 2017 release ‘Kaabil’ starring Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam, has already panned out a script in mind and wants Ranbir Kapoor to feature in it.

While speaking with a leading web portal, Gupta said, “If you are asking if there’s an actor I am dying to work with then I will say yes, and his name is Ranbir Kapoor but only because there is that one script I have for him which I have never narrated to anybody and I won’t narrate it to anybody except him. If I make it, it will be only with Ranbir because I have written it keeping him in mind. I cannot imagine anybody else playing that character. It’s wholesome drama of the Raj Kumar Hirani kind. You cannot call Raju’s films comedies. It has a beautiful title called ‘Bigde Nawab’ and it’s a brilliant story. When I saw the title song of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ my heart just screamed — look at this guy and the honesty in his face. He is feeling that song not just singing it. Like when you are working with Hrithik Roshan, he is living that scene — it’s that sincerity as an actor. It’s all about presentation.”

He further adds, “With due respect to everything that Ranbir has done but woh joh herogiri hoti hai na, I am yet to see him being presented like that — being given those scenes where he walks into a room and people stand up immediately. And which is there for everybody to see and sometimes that angers me at times. Why are filmmakers fortunate enough to be working with him not putting in that 500 per cent extra to present him properly? You are blessed that you get to work with actors like that. The day Hrithik Roshan said yes to me, I thanked God that I had been given the opportunity of a lifetime not because I got a superstar but that I got a great actor who is at the top of his game. So now I better deliver and thank God I got that support from my producer Rakeshji (Roshan) too.”

We are waiting to know more on this and we wonder which actress would be cast opposite RK Junior.
