According to the latest grapevine, actress Shraddha Kapoor has been cast opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Luv Ranjan’s next film.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the news on Twitter.
“IT’S OFFICIAL... #RanbirKapoor and #ShraddhaKapoor in Luv Ranjan’s next film [not titled yet]... Produced by Luv Ranjan and Ankur Garg... 26 March 2021 release,” he tweeted.
Luv Ranjan had announced the movie two years ago. He had announced that the movie would star Ajay Devgn and Ranbir Kapoor in the lead. Due to various unknown reasons the movie kept getting postponed. Later, the movie suffered a big blow when Ajay Devgn finally walked out of the movie.
A Pinkvilla report had claimed Ajay walked out of the film co-starring Ranbir. “Ajay Devgn has taken his name out of the film. He opted out a few weeks ago and now, won’t be starring in the movie anymore. There were a few things that all of them couldn’t agree on and they thought it’s better to not take the discussion ahead anymore. The film was anyway getting pushed but after AJ’s exit, it seems the entire project has been derailed. Luv, on the other hand, has decided to keep this film on the backburner and concentrate on another film that he’s been planning to mount on for sometime now,” it quoted a source as saying.
Later reports emerged that the movie was shelved but the director recently denied the reports and said, “It hasn’t been shelved. The work is going on. There will be a proper announcement... That’s when I will talk about it.”
There were also reports that the movie would star Deepika Padukone opposite Ranbir Kapoor in the movie. This lead to a huge outrage online with Deepika’s fans urging the actress not to work with a filmmaker accused of sexual misconduct.
This will be the first time that Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor will be seen together in a movie.
