With so many actors being reportedly being considered for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Baiju Bawra’, news has it that the actor actually being considered is Ranveer Singh and not Ranbir Kapoor, as previously said.
“Ranbir has not been offered Baiju Bawra. The only time Ranbir turned down a role in a Bhansali film was when he was offered Guzaarish. Bhansali offered him the role that was eventually played by Aditya Roy Kapur. Ranbir had a valid reason for turning it down. He told Bhansali, ‘How can I play a supporting role to Hrithik Roshan? It will typecast me as a supporting actor.’ And that was that”, said a source, talking to Filmfare.
The source also went on to add, “It is Ranveer Singh who is being seriously considered for the part. Nothing has been finalised yet. Right now Bhansali’s focus is on the casting of Heera Mandi.”
