Through a remarkable performance in Padmaavat directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali as Khilji, Ranveer Singh has proved his potential as an actor. There is no doubt that Ranveer is one of the most exciting actors in Bollywoood now. Next, Bajirao Mastani actor Ranveer Singh will feature in Rohit Shetty’s Simmba. In this movie, Ranveer will star opposite debuntante Sara Ali Khan. However, there is a rumour floating around and according to it Ranveer has agreed to do a movie Karan Johar. It is expected to be a period movie that will present story of two brothers. It is believed that Karan is searching for an actor to do the role of younger sibling at the moment. Speculations suggest that Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor Khan have already given their nod for this movie. It is also reported that Kareena will play the role of sister to Ranveer where as Alia will be his love interest.
According to a reliable source, “Karan earlier wanted Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh to play brothers but Ranbir turned it down later. He had said yes first but then he changed his mind. Karan doesn’t know if he changed his mind because it’s a negative role or because he doesn’t want to do a two-hero film with Ranveer.” Later on, it has been added by the source “Most heroes don’t want to do a two-hero film so he is having a problem casting that role. Karan wants somebody younger than Ranveer so he can’t even approach other big actors.”
So, Varun Dhawan can be an option for the role of younger sibling. He is certainly a front runner on the occasion. However, nothing has been confirmed officially yet. Shooting of the movie is expected to begin from the month of April, 2019.
