Ranbir Kapoor to NOT be a part of Raja Krishna Menon’s next

After working with stars like Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan in ‘Airlift’ and ‘Chef’ respectively, filmmaker Raja Krishna Menon has finished writing the script for his next directorial project. Recently, there were reports that Menon has approached actor Ranbir Kapoor for this project. However, putting an end to all these speculations, the ‘Airlift’ director has denied the reports about him planning to collaborate with Ranbir Kapoor on this project.

The director informed a news agency, “I have not signed Ranbir, neither have I even met him. Yes, we were supposed to meet for a coffee. I think he is a wonderful actor. But anyway, that did not happen because we both got busy. The rest is all speculation.” (Also Check: Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt enjoy a musical night with Shankar Mahadevan. SEE PICS)

Further, when asked about if at all he is considering to cast the ‘Rockstar’ actor in this film, he replied saying, “Well, so far, I have not considered anyone. I just finished writing the script a few days ago. However, I would love to work with Ranbir because he is an interesting actor. But both should mutually find the right script for that.” With this, we can put an end to all the rumours.

Indeed, it would be quite interesting to see the team up of Ranbir along with filmmaker Raja Krishna Menon in near future.

On the professional front, Ranbir Kapoor will next be seen in actor Sanjay Dutt’s biopic, following which he has ‘Brahmastra’ along with Amitabh Bachchan and Alia Bhatt lined up to start working on.
