With Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor slotted to be part of the same Koffee With Karan episode, fireworks were bound to crackle, and it didn’t disappoint. There were double entendre quips from both sides, much to Karan’s guffaws.
The two showed off great camaraderie between them, with Ranbir even wishing Ranveer and Deepika Padukone “awesome babies” even as the Bajirao Mastani star remained mum on revealing his relationship status. Apart from this confession, the two even laughed at the fact that people mistake one of them for the other, even as Karan laughed along with the two.
The host is clearly fond of the two young superstars of Bollywood, and if word’s to be believed, he may well pull off the casting coup of a lifetime by having them both star in the same movie. Sooner, than later, Karan intends to cast Ranbir and Ranveer together in a remake of Raj Kapoor’s Sangam. Talks of this have been swirling for a while, but for the first time on the show, Karan admitted to his plans.
Says a source close to the director, “Karan has offered the two actors Sangam a long time ago. The problem is, both the actors want to play Raj Kapoor’s role. If Ranveer insists, Ranbir is okay reprising Rajendra Kumar’s role. But by right, Ranbir, who is Raj saab’s grandson should ideally play the role, right? That’s what Karan feels.” Let’s see how Karan solves this dilemma.
