Ranbir Kapoor, the Hindi actor, announced in an interview that he will begin shooting for director Sandeep Reddy Vanga‘s next film in 2021. Kapoor was speaking with film critic Rajeev Masand in a video interview on December 24.
Kapoor, whose last release was Sanju in 2018, will also begin shooting for director Luv Ranjan‘s next film in 2021. The actor said he would begin shooting for Ranjan’s film from January 5. Ranjan, who has previously directed Pyaar Ka Punchnama and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety had announced his film back in 2019. However, the untitled film has been on hold for a year-and-a-half now, said Kapoor in the interview.
Ranjan’s film also stars Shraddha Kapoor. This will be Kapoor’s first film opposite Shraddha Kapoor.
Kapoor’s film with Vanga is said to be a crime drama. According to a report in Tollywood.net, the film has changed its title from Devil to Animal. Vanga decided to change the title as Devil had already been registered with producer Sajid Nadiadwala, who plans to use the title for the sequel of Kick, his film with Salman Khan, said the report.
Responding to reports that he has been signed for director Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s upcoming film – a Baiju Bawra biopic – as a medieval musician, Kapoor said, “I haven’t been offered any film from him (Sanjay Leela Bhansali).”
Speaking about the two large-scale productions Brahmastra and Shamshera, that he has been working on for almost three years now, Kapoor said that he has “already forgotten” what he did on those films. “I’m already onto my next [film] now. Of course, they’re very exciting films. I’ve given a lot to them,” he said, adding that the years he spent working on them were “very rough”.
