Ranbir Kapoor is a pretty desperate man these days. Having delivered a series of flops, like ‘Tamasha’, ‘Roy’, and ‘Besharam’, the man has been promoting his latest movie, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, with some intensity. The latest film also stars fellow flop-deliverer Aishwarya Rai, and hopeful crowd-pullers-in more-minor-roles like Fawad Khan and Shah Rukh Khan (which reads kind of like a Disney movie where you prefer the secondary characters to the main ones).
Kapoor is making ‘Dragon’ with long-time friend Ayan Mukerji; the duo has done two movies together – ‘Wake Up Sid’ and ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’. The movie also stars Alia Bhatt as Kapoor’s love interest; this will be the first time that these two star kids will act together in a movie. The movie is going to take a while to get started because first Kapoor will work on Sanjay Dutt’s biopic directed by Raju Hirani.
In the movie, Kapoor plays a superhero who can control fire. A year ago, he was quoted as saying:
“Ayan is thinking big, but for that he really has to concentrate on the writing part. Right now, he needs at least a year more for writing. I have always believed that Ayan is a genius writer. There’s no pressure on him to start the film; when he is ready, we will jump into it.”
