Filmmaker Anurag Basu is keen to start biopic on legendary singer-actor Kishore Kumar, but there are date issues with actor Ranbir Kapoor. Hence, the project is pushed furthermore. However, there were rumours that Ranbir Kapoor is not interested to do a film with Anurag Basu after the multiple delays while shooting for Jagga Jasoos.
Amidst all rumours and gossips, the actor mentioned that he really wants to do Kishore Kumar’s biopic, when he was caught talking about doing Raj Kapoor’s biopic to Outlook Magazine. The actor Ranbir Kapoor said, “It would be an honour to play him. But I feel a biopic should be made only when you can honestly portray a man’s full life. I hope my family can give that permission to portray the real person that Raj Kapoor was. Not many people know who he was beyond his movies. They do not know him as a person who had such an interesting life. Two biopics I really want to do are Raj Kapoor’s and Kishore Kumar’s.
Due to lack of dates and other gripping movies in line after the release of Sanjay Dutt’s biopic “Sanju” for actor Ranbir Kapoor, the biopic of Kishore Kumar did not go on the floors.
Moreover, Ranbir reveals, “It did not materialize. We did not get the permission of certain families to use their names, which was integral to the story. We hope to bring them in, though. Kishore Kumar’s is a very interesting personality to portray.
Well, currently actor Ranbir Kapoor is busy in promoting his next release “Sanju” starring Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Vicky Kaushal, Anushka Sharma and Sonam Kapoor. The movie will hit the theatres on June 29, 2018.
