Ranbir Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali to team up for a third film together?
This is not a drill.
Imtiaz Ali and Ranbir Kapoor may be reuniting for a film after Ali's latest film with Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma.
This will be their third film together, if confirmed, after Rockstar and Tamasha. This update comes after news of Ranbir Kapoor doing a cameo in Imtiaz's next, reportedly titled Rahnuma.
According to Times of India, the film is an edgy relationship driven project which will start as soon as he finished Rahnuma.
"Ranbir and Imtiaz have a great working relationship. They have been talking about teaming up for some time now. Discreetly, they even travel together when they have some time off work. So, after working with SRK and Anushka, Imtiaz is now keen on returning to his buddy for his next," reads the TOI report.
What is most heartwarming about this collaboration is that both the previous films with this pairing have been intense dramas with a very limited audience appreciating the films. For the duo to come together for another such film, regardless of audience reaction, is good, nay, great news.
Currently Imtiaz Ali is wrapping up the last leg of his film with Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma, which is all set to release on 11 August, clashing with Akshay Kumar's Toilet Ek Prem Katha.
Ranbir Kapoor, on the other hand, has a lot on his plate. He is currently shooting Rajkumar Hirani's biopic on Sanjay Dutt, for which he has gone underground in order to hide his various looks from the film. He also has the impending (and slightly cursed?) Jagga Jassoos, with Katrina Kaif, which is directed by Anurag Basu. The film was supposed to release in April this year but now it has been indefinitely postponed.
He also has Ayan Mukherji's next Dragon with Alia Bhatt in the pipeline. We're now desperately waiting for either Ranbir or Imtiaz to confirm their next project, so we can celebrate. Who's with us?
