MUMBAI: Sanjay Leela Bhansali is set to take play director again, for his next project. The film-maker has confirmed that the film will star Kareena Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in lead roles.
“It’s not titled Ram Leela. Let’s call it my new film with Kareena and Ranveer. It’s a full-on masala movie. I am going to have a blast. We have wanted to work together for a while and I am immensely excited. We met for the first time around the release of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam in 1999. She was working on her debut, Refugee, then. So, we’ve been constantly thinking and talking to each other. I’m happy that this has finally worked out now” said Bhansali to a daily.
Apparently, Kareena has been waiting for 13 long years to work with Bhansali. The film-maker is also highly impressed by the ‘Band, Baaja, Baraat’ actor. “Ranveer is a great guy to work with. Plus, with 11 songs and great locales, I feel the chemistry between Ranveer and Kareena is going to rock,” he added. The filmmaker plans to take the film on the floors this July.
