‘Airlift’ (2016) director, Raja Krishna Menon is reportedly keen to rope in Ranbir Kapoor for his next.
Menon’s last film ‘Chef’ performed badly at the box office and is hoping the thriller based next will be a bigger success at the box offie. Kapoor also is hoping for some more box office success after a string of flops.
A source told DNA India, “Raja Krishna Menon (the director of Airlift and Chef) is planning a film with Ranbir Kapoor. He’s working on the script currently. The actor and the director are yet to meet and take the discussion forward.”
Menon added, “I am planning a film. It’s a fictional thriller-drama. The first draft of the film is ready. I do have a few actors in mind but I don’t want to name anyone right now. I haven’t approached anyone. We plan to begin shooting sometime around end-summer next year.”
Menon was asked also Kapoor, to which he said, “Ranbir is a fantastic actor. I would love to work with him. He makes some interesting choices. I haven’t offered him the film yet. He’s busy with Brahmastra right now. We had planned to meet, not for a film or anything, but just to catch up and know each other. We don’t know each other at all. We just wanted to meet and discuss what space he would like to be in. But right now, if you ask me, there’s nothing which has been discussed with him.”
