Ranbir and Sonakshi in Abhinav Kashyap’s next

Abhinav Kashyap may have not gotten his due even though his debut film Dabangg was the biggest hit of 2010, but he hasn’t lost heart to make things work for him in the industry. For his next, he has roped in Ranbir Kapoor in the lead and pinned hopes on Sonakshi Sinha to star opposite Ranbir. However, he is facing some hurdles to bring these two together.

No… don’t get Sonakshi and Ranbir wrong. The girl hasn’t turned snooty towards her first director or Ranbir doesn’t have any issues with Sonakshi looking elder than him as was rumoured recently. It seems the producers of the film Viacom 18 wants to have a new face opposite Ranbir – a combination that has always worked at the Hindi Box Office for the actor. But Abhinav feels Sonakshi is apt for the role.

The film is titled Kaarnama where Ranbir plays a Delhi hoodlum who mouths crass lingo. It is a very rugged character. It is a story of his one-sided love for a docile and homely girl who loathes him for his mannerisms. According to Kashyap, Sonakshi fits the bill as the tame girl perfectly. Hence, he is insistent on getting the actress for the film. Also, this is an untried pairing which will work for the film anyway. Only time will tell in this tussle of the director and producer, who has the last word. Guess we will just have to wait who Ranbir romances this time.
