Real reason: Why Ranbir will not do Kishore Kumar's biopic
Ranbir Kapoor said no to the biopic about the life and songs of Kishore Kumar.
According to sources close to the aborted project, “All the research work was done and a script being readied in collusion with Kishoreda’s son Amit Kumar, a close friend of Ranbir’s father Rishi Kapoor. But Ranbir had the space for only one biopic.
Ranbir and Anurag Basu spending nearly two years researching the same, Ranbir preferred doing the Sanjay Dutt biopic.
He chose the Sanjay Dutt film. And since Amit, who had the overall creative copyright over the proposed film on his father, wanted no other actor to play Kishore, the biopic stands cancelled.
