The 2018 release, Sanju, directed by Rajkumar Hirani proved to be a gamechanger for Ranbir Kapoor, as he became the only actor after Aamir Khan and Salman Khan to make an entry in the Rs 300 crore club. The actor also won acclaim for his flawless portrayal of Sanjay Dutt on the screen.
According to sources, it’s not a sequel to PK, but an original script, that Raju has been working on. “Raju has a bank of ideas ready to roll, and while working on Sanju, he had discussed one particular plot with Ranbir, which the actor fell in love with. In-fact, that was supposed to be Hirani’s immediate next after Sanju at one point of time, as Shah Rukh Khan had multiple film commitments lined up,” revealed a source close to the development. The idea is said to be in typical Rajkumar Hirani space of social comedy.
At present, Rajkumar Hirani is working on the second half of his next with Shah Rukh Khan. Insiders reveal that the filmmaker doesn’t go on the floors till he has everything written on the paper, and he is satisfied with the written material. “He has had multiple drafts of the script, but still finding the ideal closure to the story, which is resulting in delays. Once the script is locked, the shoot wouldn’t take long, as the maker intends to wrap it up in a quick span of five to six months. He just has to execute all that’s written on paper,” After finishing the SRK film, Hirani will move onto the idea that he discussed with Ranbir Kapoor Meanwhile, Ranbir has films like Shamshera, Brahmastra, Luv Ranjan’s next and Kabir Singh Director,s Animal.
