Ranveer Singh, who achieved tremendous success with his first movie ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ itself, has penned down a script for a dark comedy which he is keen on directing too.
“It’s a dark comedy and it’s partially ready,” he admitted to a daily.
“I’ve had this subject in mind for a very long time. I’ve been a copywriter and done various other things related to the job I’m doing now, before becoming an actor. I can’t tell you the details of the story because it’s too premature, but the subject is contemporary and something the youth can definitely relate with,” he said.
The actor has already shown the script to few people, which includes the director Shaad Ali, of ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ fame.
“Everyone who has heard the story has showed interest in it. Shaad’s reaction was something I can never forget. I’ve learnt the ropes of filmmaking before entering the industry. But as someone who is two or three films old, it would be too early for me to start producing and directing,” he said.
“So, maybe someone else will have to step into those jobs. But I’d definitely like to write the script myself. And the film will have to be on floors really soon, maybe in a year, because if I hold on to it any longer, the basic idea will become stale,” he added.
Currently the actor is busy promoting his second movie ‘Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl’ with Anushka Sharma. This will be his second movie with YRF banner.
When asked if he would like to do a third movie with YRF he said, “I will do another movie for sure with the banner. They haven’t spoken to me about anything as yet. I don’t know if it will be with Anushka (Sharma) and director Maneesh (Sharma), but it’ll be great to complete a hat trick with them”.
In December, the actor will start shooting for his third movie ‘Lootera’ to be directed by Vikramaditya Motwane featuring Sonakshi Sinha.
