Ranbir-Katrina To Star In Anurag Basu's Kishore-Madhubala Biopic ?
After Barfi!'s spectacular success, Ranbir has let it out that he will be playing the lead role in Anurag Basu's yet-to-be-named biopic on Kishore Kumar and Madhubala's love story.
The success of Barfi! encouraged Ranbir and Anurag to finalize the movie on one of Bollywood's most famous love stories. Sources indicate that dad Rishi Kapoor was keen that Ranbir should do the movie.
Grapevine suggests that Katrina Kaif has been chosen for Madhubala's role. Basu says Katrina may be seen either in his next movie Silence or the one after which will be the biopic. Katrina is said to be keen to opt out of Ranbir-Priyanka starrer Silence to ensure she gets to play Madhubala. Of course, the film is at a preliminary stage and the cast, plot and other details have not been finalized yet. Further, the project has been in the pipeline for quite some time now.
Will we see a recreation of the iconic song 'Ek ladki bheegi bhaagi si'? Will it work? Will fans accept Ranbir-Katrina or any other pair as modern day Kishore and Madhubala? The lead actors will have their task cut out considering Kishore and Madhubala are legends with millions of fans swearing by their legacy even today.
