Bollywood has several actor-director duos who are considered magical pairings in movies. Today, we are discussing about one such duo, who remained almost inseparable over the last few years. The actor, who's a big name in the younger circuit, is also a major hit with the audiences. While he is considered as one of the most bankable stars of today, this top filmmaker was the one who helped him deliver his first major successful project and then, as they say, rest was history. 

The filmmaker teamed up with the star on two more projects, with both being blockbusters at the box office and suddenly, everyone started talking about their working chemistry. But now, when the maverick director has moved on to his next project, which is a female centric drama that stars an A-list actress, he actually needed a few of his friends to step in for special appearances. So he made an offer to his favourite boy and asked if he could spare him a week's time to shoot the cameo.

Knowing that he's had a long standing relationship with the actor, the director was sure he won't let him down. But the star did the unthinkable and flatly refused to do the role. He told him he doesn't have the dates to accommodate to the project, which also was a fair reason, to be honest. People who know the filmmaker well also know that he isn't well equipped to handle a 'no' from others, so when the actor told him this, he was infuriated. Apparently, they had a massive verbal argument where the actor tried to explain his situation, as he had already committed his dates to another project. But the director was in no mood to listen, let alone understand his plight and hung up the call. Last we heard, the cold war is still on and the director might not even sign the same hero for his next magnum opus that has already been announced.

Everyone putting Alia on a pedestal.. SLB giving her a title script, rajamouli trying to lengthen her role in RRR.. and now SLB needs Ranveer to do a cameo to hold the film together.. he needs to figure out the cast and the schedule in advance and not put people like Ranveer on the spot.

slb is desperate for star cameos in this dud? i can see why, he’s trying to get deepika to do a dance number since alia can’t pull them off also.
ranveer doesn’t need to do an slb cameo or worry about losing out on a remake. he probably needs a break and work with other talented directors

ranveer doesn’t have to do anything. slb needs to figure out his casting before he shoots. besides ranbir can cameo in this one

slb will get over it, let this one flop

Easy one! SLB and Ranveer...SLB is got a huge ego like his larger than life films....However, considering the fact that his films made him the huge star he is now, he could have made some adjustments! A cameo wouldn't require a long shooting schedule...

Ranveer Singh and SLB
