Ranbir Kapoor replaces Shah Rukh Khan

Added by harini on Oct 11, 2011

Shah Rukh Khan has been replaced by Ranbir Kapoor in Sajid Nadiadwala's ‘Two States’, the adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s novel by same name.

The movie was to be directed by Vishal Bharadwaj and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. The things have changed now, even though the director hasn’t been confirmed yet, the movie might be co-produced by Karan Johar.

"Karan approached Sajid to co-produce the film”, said an insider to TOI.

Karan Johar confirmed the reports and said, “Abhishek Varman who assisted me on My Name Is Khan and is now creative director on Student of the Year has written a simple and fantastic adaptation of Two States. Sajid has the rights of the book and we are in discussions about an association."

Sajid Nadiadwala said, “Karan and I are in talks to produce a film together. He approached me but nothing has been finalized as yet. What gives me a high is that if the marriage between the two production companies do happen, it won't be for financial reasons but pure creativity where the intention is to produce a good film."

If this does happen, it will be the first time that Karan Johar production house ‘Dharma Productions’ has collaborated with another banner other than Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Red Chillies’.
