Ranbir Kapoor to Refuse Kabir Singh Director’s Next Film?

Devil, Sandeep Vanga Reddy’s new film with Ranbir Kapoor

Ranbir  Kapoor is Sandeep Vanga’s choice  for  his  next  Hindi venture Devil. However one hears that Ranbir has second thoughts  about playing a  character almost as dark as Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker.

A  source  close  to Ranbir inform, “Ranbir loves the script. It’s dark, crazy and  unpredictable.  But  is this  a good time to go crazy  on  the  audience?  Joker may be filling up the  theatres. But look at how much hatred it’s garnering  from responsible sections of  society all over the world.” Lest we  forget, Sandeep Vanga’s last release  Kabir Khan attracted  a huge amount of flak for its hero’s  misogyny.

Ranbir, we hear, is in no mood to do a dark negative character at this  juncture. Vanga may have to go to another actor  with Devil.

After  the  success  of Arjun Reddy and Kabir Singh every major actor in  Hindi and  Telugu cinema wanted to work with Vanga. But the  director zeroed in  on  Ranbir Kapoor who agreed  to be part  of Vanga’s cinema. The director  narrated the  suspense thriller  to Ranbir who apparently  loved the dark character with negative shades. Interestingly Devil is  the same  film and character  that Vanga offered  to Telugu  superstar Mahesh Babu.

Says a source  close to the development, “Sandeep Vanga was very keen to work with Mahesh Babu and Mahesh too was  interested  in working with Vanga. They met and Vanga  narrated Devil  to Mahesh Babu who found  the subject too dark for his taste and for his audience’s  taste.”

 Mahesh  apparently asked Vanga  to come up with another idea. But Sandeep preferred  to take Devil to  Ranbir  instead. Sources say  Devil is  the darkest character Ranbir has  ever taken up.
