Ranbir Kapoor has every reason to be exuberant. His career going great guns, the young and handsome lad is slowly but surely emerging as the superstar of tomorrow. No surprise that he’s on the wishlist of top notch directors.
Mani Ratnam is learnt to be interested in casting Ranbir for his next film after Raavan. The film is tentatively titled ‘Azan’ and will probably have Ranbir playing the titular protagonist who is named Azan because he was born at a time when a call to prayer (Azan) in the mosque was made.
Unlike the recent films on jihad or terrorism, this flick is said to be based on a theme that will present the Muslim perspective from a different angle.
Ratnam has reportedly been tracing the continuous rise of Ranbir ever since he made his debut in Saawariya. The success of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani has only cemented Ranbir’s position as not just a bankable star but also an actor of talent.
If Ranbir indeed agrees to act in Azan, the movie will go on the floors after the release of ‘Raavan’ in May next year.
