Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone reportedly quit Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ambitious project ‘Baiju Bawra’.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Baiju Bawra’ has been in the news for a long time now over the casting of the film. Reports were also rife that Ranbir and Deepika will be reuniting for the film. However, both the actors have reportedly opted out of the film.
According to a report in a news portal, Ranbir, who made his big Bollywood debut with the filmmaker’s ‘Saawariya’ in 2007, was reportedly not impressed with the script of the movie. According to him, it has a ‘restricted appeal’.
Deepika, on the other hand, reportedly turned down Bhansali’s ambitious film as she was denied equal pay as her husband Ranveer Singh who is the leading star of the project now. The report claimed that Deepika was denied the amount and since she already has several big-ticket films in her lineup up she gave preference to starring in Fighter opposite Hrithik Roshan in Siddharth Anand’s ‘Fighter’.
Deepika and Ranbir were last seen in Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Tamasha’. Although the movie received mixed reviews, their chemistry and performance were hailed by their fans.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Ranbir will next be seen in Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Brahmastra’ co-starring his lady love Alia Bhatt in the lead role. The movie will also feature Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna Akkineni, Dimple Kapadia and Mouni Roy in key roles.
Apart from this, he has been roped in for Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s ‘Animal’ co-starring Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol and Parineeti Chopra. He also has Luv Ranjan’s untitled next with Shraddha Kapoor.
Deepika, on the other hand, has some very interesting projects in her kitty which includes Shakun Batra’s next, Nag Ashwin’s upcoming film with Prabhas, Kabir Khan’s ‘83’ and the official Hindi remake of ‘The Intern’.
