'Wake Up Sid', 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'. The Ranbir Kapoor- Ayan Mukherjee combination has proven to be a sure-shot winner at the box office. Now, it looks like the duo is all set to churn out another blockbuster.
As per a leading daily, Ayan Mukherjee's next venture which is a superhero film will hit the shooting floors in February 2016. A source close to the project confirmed the news and said, "Once 'Bombay Velvet' is out of the way, Ranbir will finish Anurag Basu’s 'Jagga Jasoos' and Imtiaz Ali’s 'Tamasha' in two schedules as both are expected to hit the theatres this year. When he recently met with his team to chart out his plan for 2016, Ayan’s film was the first to get a slot as Ranbir Kapoor is really excited about playing a caped crusader.”
It is said to be a fantasy-based film, set in contemporary times involving a boy with some form of superpowers. As per reports, Ranbir is personally involved in all aspects of the project, right from the script to creating a superhero character which is also speculated to have a lot of mythological elements.
Alia Bhatt will play his leading lady in the film. The two actors will be pairing up together on-screen for the first time.
Well, we can't wait to see Ranbir's 'superhero' avatar now.
