While Barfi was still in the works, Anurag Basu and Ranbir Kapoor were toying with the idea of making a biopic on Kishore Kumar’s life. But, it seems the idea will remain an idea only for the time being. Ranbir himself confirmed the news of the project getting shelved, “That film is shelved. We wanted to make that film. It was one of the most interesting stories Dada (Basu) and I had in mind. But it didn’t work out and we aren’t making it anymore.” It has been learnt that the reason were the multiple problems they encountered.
Ranbir also said, “Firstly, we didn’t get the cast we wanted for the film. Then there were issues with the script. Family members were not happy with the script and it was just not working out. So, all these factors played spoilsport. Otherwise, it could have been a great film.”
But Ranbir needn’t worry, as he will be seen in a movie on the life of Sanjay Dutt.
