Not in real life yaar! Ranbir Kapoor is all set to play yet another confused NRI in one of his forthcoming films. I know what you are thinking. We have seen so many of these crossover films that deal with the subject of identity crisis in NRIs. How would this one be any different?
But this particular film IS going to be different. The first reason is that this is not a small budget film like the others. This film is BIG. It is being made by none other than the famous and critically acclaimed Mani Ratnam.
The second reason is that the film has been written by Rensil D Silva. Remember the guy who wrote Rang De Basanti?
Thirdly, this film will star Ranbir Kapoor. C’mon now! Did any of the other ones have such a cute guy playing the lead role?
Currently Mani Ratnam is busy shooting his Ravana with Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. But the film with Ranbir Kapoor is all set to go on the floor by mid-next year. As expected, Ranbir will play a young Indian living abroad. The film will show the protagonist being torn between two opposite cultures of the East and West. This surely sounds like a character that has great potential for showcasing “acting” ability. Let us hope Ranbir can play the ABCD convincingly.
Didn’t get ABCD? American Born Confused Desi, yaar!
