Plans are afoot to cast Ranbir Kapoor as his own illustrious grandfather in a film that Ranbir’s father Rishi Kapoor will produce under the family’s banner RK Films. Says a source very close to the Kapoor family, “It is the Kapoor khandaan’s most cherished dream project. They’ve wanted to make a biopic on Raj saab for the longest time. Until Ranbir became an actor they couldn’t think of anyone who could fit the bill. Now the project is finally gaining shape.”
Ranbir has been fascinated with Raj Kapoor for the longest time. He has seen all of Raj saab’s work repeatedly and knows them inside-out. The RK Films banner has been dormant for years now. Randhir and Rishi Kapoor would like to revive the banner with a biopic on Raj Kapoor. The brothers are in agreement. They feel Ranbir is the best person to play Raj saab,” reveals a member from the Kapoor clan.
