After playing the brash Bittoo in Band Baaja Baarat and the roguish Ricky in Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, fans of Bandra boy Ranveer Singh might soon get to see the actor playing the romantic Romeo opposite Kareena Kapoor in a film based on the classical tragic love story Romeo and Juliet, penned by William Shakespeare.
Sources claim that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is planning to make a film adapted from the story and plans to approach the two actors to star in it. "Sanjay Leela Bhansali has already discussed his plans with Kareena Kapoor and is now awaiting her reply. Bhansali is however yet to speak to Ranveer about his intentions to cast him in the film."
Bhansali has reportedly started getting his team together for the pre-production. Since the film is based in Gujarat, the production will take a lot of time and Bhansali is expected to make an announcement about this venture soon.
In the past, filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj had made two movies viz. Maqbool and Omkara based on playwright William Shakespeare's classic plays Macbeth and Othello respectively.
