After creating magic onscreen with their blockbuster movie Barfi in 2012, Anurag Basu and Ranbir Kapoor are reportedly teaming up once again. But, there is a twist to the story. Anurag will not be directing the youngest Kapoor. This time, Ranbir Kapoor will work with Basu, but as a co-producer. Ranbir is changing his role for the much-awaited sequel of Basu’s hit relationship-drama Life In a Metro.
According to reports, Basu has confirmed that he will collaborate with the versatile actor and his dear friend, Ranbir as a producer for the film. Though the ace director also wishes to cast the actor in one of the lead roles in the sequel, he has left it on Ranbir to decide for himself.
Talking about who all will be a part of the sequel, Basu confirmed the presence of Irrfan Khan in the movie. However, the fans of the film may have to miss out on seeing Kangana Ranaut, who played a pivotal role in the first part.
If all the reports turn out to be true, then this will be the second project for Basu and Ranbir as co-producers. Ranbir is already donning the producer’s cap for his upcoming spy caper, Jagga Jasoos, directed by Anurag Basu.
Comic-drama ,Jagga Jasoos, starring Ranbir, Katrina Kaif, and Adah Sharma revolves around a detective who is in search of his missing father. The film had got delayed after the alleged break-up of Ranbir and Katrina, which made it difficult for the makers to get the two together on the sets, as they refused to work together. However, the two former lovers kept their personal issues aside and completed the film’s shooting. Jagga Jasoos is now scheduled to release in 2017.
