Ranbir Kapoor has confirmed that he in fact has been approached by the producer Sajid Nadiadwala for the movie adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s novel ‘2 States’.
“Yes, I have been approached for the film by producer Sajid Nadiadwala,” confirmed Ranbir to a leading daily.
“Of late, ‘Rockstar’s’ promotions have kept me very busy, so I haven’t read the script yet. But in the coming month, I will hear it and take a final call,” he added.
But Ranbir Kapoor stated that he has read the novel and liked it.
“Yes, I really enjoyed it. To be honest, I’ve always enjoyed Chetan’s works,” he said.
When asked if he was bothered that he would be replacing someone as huge as Shah Rukh Khan in the movie he said, “Absolutely not. Before Sajid came to me, he had already closed the chapter with Shah Rukh Khan”.
He said that he had no idea why Shah Rukh Khan decided to walk out of the movie.
“Honestly, I don’t know what transpired between them (makers and Shah Rukh). It’s not my concern or business to know that. But when the film came to me, no director or actor was involved,” he said.
Ranbir Kapoor is really looking forward to work in Ayan Mukerji’s upcoming movie ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’ with Deepika Padukone.
“It will hit the floors in February because Barfee was delayed a bit and I also took time off for Rockstar’s promotions. But I am looking forward to it because it’s a Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge-meets-Hum Aapke Hai Kaun-meets-Wake Up Sid-meets-West Side Story,” he said.
He is excited that with this movie he will make his comeback in youthful romantic cinema.
“It has a great vibe. I feel I have aged a bit with Rockstar and the experience ofJordan. So I hope to pull this role off with conviction and make it the love story of the generation,” he added.
