Ranveer Singh, the unstoppable force of Bollywood, is making waves with his recent signing with the illustrious Hollywood Talent Agency, William Morris Endeavor. And guess what? He’s bagged not one, but two colossal projects that will leave us all in awe.
After Shah Rukh Khan stepped down, the hunt for a new Don had everyone on the edge of their seats but Ranveer Singh is about to take over the mantle of the iconic Don franchise. But that’s not all, the powerhouse performer is set to reunite with the visionary director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali in his next ‘Baiju Bawra’.
Here’s what we know about ‘Baiju Bawra’
When you have projects like Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Don 3’ and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Baiju Bawra’ in your kitty, you know you’re entering the realm of Bollywood’s biggest upcoming blockbusters. Pinkvilla reported with an insider source who stated, “Ranveer has been in discussion with Sanjay Leela Bhansali over the longest time and after all the ups and down through the journey, the duo is reuniting on Baiju Bawra. The finances were an issue, but Ranveer has always been an actor to chase the craft and script over money and hence has decided to get into a deal that benefits Bhansali to put in all the monies in making the film. Baiju Bawra is expected to take off in early 2024.”
Details about ‘Singham Again’
Giving more information about the actresses, the source said, “Apart from Alia, Bhansali is in talks with two other actresses for the character of dacoit queen Roopmati. The conversations should close the loop in the next 20 to 25 days.”
Before diving into Bhansali’s magnum opus, Ranveer will be donning the khaki uniform once again for Rohit Shetty’s ‘Singham Again’. The source added, “Ranveer Singh will be shooting for about 30 to 35 days for Singham Again. His character is very integral to all the happenings in the Singham Verse, and this time around, it’s a lot more than just a cameo. The exact dates are yet not known, but he will be wrapping up his chunk on Singham Again this year.”
