We earlier reported that Ranbir Kapoor has an impressive line of movies in his pipeline for the coming year. Among them were Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos, Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Ayan Mukerji’s untitled superhero flick and the much-talked-about the biopic on Raj Kapoor. However, now we hear that the actor is keen on working with a specific director. Interestingly, Ranbir had refused to be a part of her films in the past. We are talking about none other than filmmaker Zoya Akhtar. If the rumour-mongers are to be believed, Ranbir is now keen to work with Zoya but we have no news about the fact that if she still wants to work with him.
It all started with the 2011 cult film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. It was Zoya’s second outing as a director and she wanted Ranbir Kapoor to play one of the three leads. The actor, however, refused to come aboard as he was not satisfied with the script. Later on, the film, which starred Farhan Akhtar, Hrithik Roshan, and Abhay Deol, went on to win a host of awards.
Next came the 2015 family comedy drama, Dil Dhadakne Do, starring Anil Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra, and Farhan Akhtar in lead roles. Zoya had considered Ranbir for an important role in the film but the actor refused again. There were also reports of Zoya offering Gully Boy to Ranbir. The movie, which also stars Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, was rejected by Kapoor because he did not want to play second lead to Ranveer Singh.
However, now we hear that since the Rockstar actor’s last outing, Tamasha failed to impress the critics as well as the audiences, Ranbir is now eager to work with Zoya. But will the director be interested in working with an actor who refused her so many times? That question will only be answered after an official announcement is made.
