Since Ranveer Singh‘s phenomenal surprise hit Band Baaja Barat, his Bollywood debut last year, where he plays the disarmingly charming Bittoo,
everyone in Bollywood must have had this one thought: is Ranveer the new Get, the new It, the new young SRK on the block? Of course, the movie was young and refreshing, the chemistry with Anushka Sharma the driving force. But Ranveer is somebody this whole industry has been waiting for impatiently. The young, irreverent hero, the heart-breaker. His energy is infectious. He has the looks. He is a natural in front of the camera. And he has the most important quality of all: Youth. It’s a winning combo, so it doesn’t surprise that everyone now wants a piece of him.
He is presently shooting Lootera, next to Dabangg’s newcomer Sonakshi Sinha, which will be releasing in October 2012. There will be quite a hype around this movie. Its producer Vikas Bahl has been part of the best films of the last few years:
2009 Dev D
Quite impressive as a resume. These are some of my favorite movies! So Ranveer should be in extremely good hands here. Word goes around that Karan Johar expressed interest, too, in working with Ranveer.
Ranveer’s most recent movie , Ladies vs Ricky Bahl was more a vehicle for Anushka Sharma. Even though it couldn’t generate a box office tsunami, it was still a fun and watchable movie. But I am sure that Bollywood will want to test if he has the same draw as the young Khans once had and offer him interesting roles. How big will he be? we won’t know for a while.. he is still a wild card in the game, but one with great promise.
Ranveer Singh to act in Hindi remake of Magadheera
Ranveer Singh might be a new kid in the tinsel town but this lady killer is definitely rising high. Ranveer, who once poked fun at Aamir Khan and Salman, is currently following their footsteps towards success. Ranveer too has got into the leads of South movie remakes.
Ranveer has been signed to star in the Hindi remake of award winning Telugu film Magadheera, PTI reports. Magadheera, a historical-drama-love story, will be remade in Hindi by Anurag Kashyap and Vikas Bahl’s production company Phantom.
“Magadheera is a passion project for us at Phantom and we are so excited to have the rights to recreate this magical piece of work. Ranveer is the best thing that could have happened to it. He has all the ingredients to be a passionate lover, a warrior and an entertainer all at the same time,” Bahl said.
The lead actress and the director to helm the project are yet to be finalised. The Hindi version, is reportedly being made with a budget of Rs 50 crore.
