Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s ‘Kabir Singh’ clocked a year yesterday. It is no secret that ‘Kabir Singh’ was one of the most controversial movies of 2019 and it was the talk of the town. Sandeep is now all set to direct another dark themed movie that is apparently titled ‘Devil’.
According to a report by Mid-Day, Ranbir Kapoor was given a narration by Vanga, who will be casting the actor as a protagonist. A source said, “After a chat in September, Sandeep caught up with Ranbir for another narration in January.”
While there were speculations that Prabhas was to cast in place of Ranbir but the source also cleared the air saying, “It’s not true. Ranbir hasn’t given up on the film. It’s a dark role that Ranbir has never attempted before. However, before signing the film, Ranbir wants to read the full bound script. The next meeting is scheduled in August.”
The source further added, “The darkness and toxicity in ‘Devil’ will be much more intense than [what was] seen in ‘Kabir Singh and the film may receive an A certificate. Ranbir may garner much more criticism than Shahid Kapoor did.”
Kapoor has also discussed the script with his BFF Ayan Mukerji and the source said that it would do well for Ranbir. “Ayan believes that Devil could be one of the most defining movies of Ranbir’s career,” the source added.
Meanwhile, for now, Ranbir will be seen with Alia Bhatt in his next ‘Brahmastra’ which is directed by Ayan Mukerji.
