It is Ranveer Singh in and as Baiju Bawra in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s tale of the musical saga, earlier filmed by Vikram Bhatt’s grandfather, observed Vijay Bhatt.
There was news that Ranbir Kapoor has said no to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s proposed musical love story Baiju Bawra. Sources close to Bhansali denied stating, “Ranbir has not been offered Baiju Bawra.
The only time Ranbir rolled down a role in a Bhansali film was when he was offered Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai starrer Guzaarish. Bhansali attempted him the role that was ultimately played by Aditya Roy Kapur.”
About the casting of Baiju Bawra, the source close to Bhansali productions says, “It is Ranveer Singh who was being seriously regarded for the part.
Bhansali’s focus was on the casting of Heera Mandi. But now since erroneous information on the male casting of Baiju Bawra was being leaked out, Bhansali has determined to announce Ranveer Singh in the arduous grand musical’s title role.”
