Ranbir Kapoor revealed how he had utilised his time during the Covid-19 lockdown. He said that he had written a story, which he feels can be turned into a film.
Apart from being newlyweds and soon-to-be parents, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are also two of the most sought after and busiest actors of Bollywood. Alia recently returned home after completing her Hollywood debut film Heart of Stone, will soon resume the shooting of Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani and is also gearing up for two releases. Ranbir, on the other hand, is all set to make his big comeback to the silver screen with Shamshera and has an exciting line up ahead. But there’s also another wish on his list which he hopes to fulfill soon.
While Alia is going to make her debut as a producer with Darlings, Ranbir had turned producer many years back for Jagga Jasoos, which probably very few people knew. Now he has revealed his dream to direct a project. Also Read: Vijay Deverakonda Reacts As He Learns Sara Ali Khan Wants To Date Him: ‘I Love How..’
Ranbir Kapoor Wants To Turn Director
In a recent chat with FilmiBeat, he explained, “When I produced Jagga Jasoos with Anurag Basu, I didn’t have that experience. I was only producing that film as an actor. So till now, I have not worked as a producer. But yes, I have always wanted to direct a film. In this lockdown, I have also written a story, which I have liked very much.”
Ranbir shared, “But yes, direction is more on my wish list than production. Well, my wife is a producer.. and is a very good producer, so maybe she can produce my film.” Also Read: ‘Hope I’m Invited’: Athiya Shetty Reacts To Rumours Of Marriage With KL Rahul, Suniel Shetty Says ‘Nothing Has Been Planned Yet’
Ranbir Kapoor is currently busy with the promotions of his film. In Shamshera, RK will be sharing screen space with Sanjay Dutt, who plays an antagonist. Vaani Kapoor will be portraying his love interest while Ronit Roy, Saurabh Shukla and Ashutosh Rana will be playing key roles in the much-talked about upcoming HIndi movie.
Talking about working with director Karan Malhotra, RK said, “When we see the film, it’s all worth it. However, working on this film was a nightmare. It was the most physically draining film for me, Vaani and all of us. We were covered in dust. We were shooting in peak summer in Mumbai wearing woollen clothes. I also had a thick beard. We were supposed to do action. So, it was really hard,”.
