Filmmaker Sanjay Gupta is gearing up for his next directorial Kaabil starring Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam. The film is set to hit the screens next year on January 26, 2017.

As Sanjay has wrapped up the film, he is now prepping for his next project. Talking about it and the actor he wants to work with, Gupta stated to a popular daily, "If you are asking if there's an actor I am dying to work with then I will say yes, and his name is Ranbir Kapoor but only because there is that one script I have for him which I have never narrated to anybody and I won't narrate it to anybody except him. If I make it, it will be only with Ranbir because I have written it keeping him in mind. I cannot imagine anybody else playing that character."

He further added, "It's wholesome drama of the Rajkumar Hirani kind. You cannot call Raju's films comedies. It has a beautiful title called Bigde Nawab and it's a brilliant story. When I saw the title song of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil my heart just screamed — look at this guy and the honesty in his face. He is feeling that song not just singing it. Like when you are working with Hrithik Roshan, he is living that scene — it's that sincerity as an actor. It's all about presentation."

If Ranbir says yes to the film, this will not be the first time he will be seen as spoilt brat character. To which the Jazbaa director said, "With due respect to everything that Ranbir has done but woh joh herogiri hoti hai na, I am yet to see him being presented like that — being given those scenes where he walks into a room and people stand up immediately. And which is there for everybody to see and sometimes that angers me at times. Why are filmmakers fortunate enough to be working with him not putting in that 500 percent extra to present him properly? You are blessed that you get to work with actors like that. The day Hrithik Roshan said yes to me, I thanked God that I had been given the opportunity of a lifetime not because I got a superstar but that I got a great actor who is at the top of his game. So now I better deliver and thank God I got that support from my producer Rakeshji (Roshan) too."

Furthermore, the filmmaker talked about his wishlist and the actor he would like to work with in the future. "I don't have a wishlist. I have worked with everybody and I know that the next logical thing to do, is to work with the younger generation. I see all their movies and I see all of them trying really hard. But most of them are also working with a new set of directors. For a filmmaker to truly understand his craft it takes times. Presenting a hero well takes time. When you say Sanjay Dutt has always been presented well in my films, I say but he's the same Sanju in the other films also with the same set of costume designers and hair stylist so why is he different in my films? It's because of the scenes and the larger-than-life character that has been created for him. Today, when I see the new boys, they don't want to do macho stuff, they just want to be the hero and yet there's always some chuvanni missing. I know what that is. The day I work with them I will present it as a complete package," concludes Gupta.

After 4 flops Ranbir has just delivered a Hit movie. Green director please stay away from him.

Flop is nothing for Ranbir. He is the best. But I just hope when he cast Ranbir he must try to be original. I Google him after reading this. All his movie is copy from international films.

Lol to the haters who burnt because of Ranbir's success. Lol they giving credit to Srk for ADHM. Lol then dear zindagi and jazba must be cross 100cr.

Ranbir truly deserves all the praises. Love him.

Ranbir can't afford an another flop
You wanna be trying to damage his career,just to get him on board for their films..

so it will be green ranbir

ADHM did a good job at the boxoffice because of SRK and Aiswarya otherwise the movie was just bakwas!

Apparently he has a crush on ranbir...

I love what he said about Ranbir but he doesn't deserves to have Ranbir.

Stay away Ranbir.

Well said .100% agree with him.

Aww, Ranbir. Almost all directors are wanting to work with him. Just shows he is here to stay.


KJo just revived his career with CPR, you 'dying' to work with him might actually kill his career...let the guy recuperate before you throw your 50 shades of green all over him. Thanks
