Right after the success of Barfi it was reported that Anurag Basu is planning a biopic on legendary singer Kishore Kumar. It was also reported that he is planning to rope in Ranbir Kapoor for the film. While he was busy to writing the script for Kishore Kumar’s Biopic, he started Jagga Jasoos with Ranbir. But due to Ranbir’s very busy schedule Anurag can’t depend on the actor totally, he might sign another actor for the biopic if Ranbir is busy.
The director told to a leading daily,
I don’t know with whom I will make the film and when exactly. After Sanjay Dutt biopic, Ranbir will be busy with another film, [Ayan Mukerji’s] ‘Dragon’. I don’t want to wait for too long for my [much-delayed] film, so if Ranbir can’t give dates this year, I will go with someone else.
