Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone were one of the best pairs on the silver screen. They first appeared on screen in the film Bachna Ae Haseeno in 2008. After that, they appeared in two more films - Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani in 2013 and Tamasha in 2015. Both these films were critically acclaimed. However, the pair has not appeared in a film together since Tamasha. Rumour is that they might be reuniting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next film titled Baiju Bawra.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is remaking the 1952 film Baiju Bawra. Rumour has it that the director has approached Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone with a proposal to star in a film together again.
According to a source, " Ranbir and Deepika make a pair to reckon with on-screen and Bhansali wants to create magic on-screen with the two actors. Talks are on, however, neither of the two have signed the dotted lines yet."
Deepika has starred in many Sanjay Leela Bhansali films such as Padmaavat, Ramleela and Bajirao Mastani. Ranbir has not worked with the director. If the rumours are true, Baiju Bawra will be the first Sanjay Leela Bhansali film that Ranbir will star in. It will also mark the fourth collaboration for Deepika and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Currently, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has collaborated with Aishwarya Rai and Deepika on 3 films each. It will also mark the fourth collaboration for Deepika and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. And Deepika will become the actress that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has most collaborated with. An official confirmation is yet to arrive.
Meanwhile, Deepika is looking forward to appearing in the films - 83 (film) and an untitled adaption of the Mahabharata. Ranbir Kapoor is also looking forward to appearing in the films Brahmastra and Shamshera. Sanjay Leela Bhansali is looking forward to the release of his 2020 film Gangubai Kathiwadi.
