For the past few months, Ranveer Singh has gotten in the mold of reading scripts to decide on his next few films after the soon-to-be-released Rocky Aur Rani Prem Kahani. Reportedly, the actor had a clear mindset to zero down for his next few in doing films with theatrical value and it seems that Ranveer has finally decided to lock in two films.
Sources reveal that he will be shooting over a period of 2 years in 2024 and 2025. According to Bollywood media reports, Ranveer Singh’s next two films are Baiju Bawra and Don 3.
Ranveer has been in discussion with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for the longest time and after all the ups and down through the journey, the duo is reuniting on Baiju Bawra.
The finances were an issue but Ranveer has always been an actor to chase the craft and script over monies and hence has decided to get into a deal that benefits Bhansali to put in all the monies in making the film. Baiju Bawra is expected to take off in early 2024.
SLB is in talks with several studios to come on board as the partner. Baiju Bawra will go on floors once SLB has wrapped up shooting for Heera Mandi. “Hopefully, it will be a wrap on Heera Mandi by December,” the source shared.
Alia Bhatt has been locked in to play the female lead alongside Ranveer in the film and a big ensemble will be put in place before taking it on floors around February next year. Apart from Alia, Bhansali is in talks with two other actresses for the character of dacoit queen Roopmati. The conversations should close the loop in the next 20 to 25 days,” the source added. Right after Baiju Bawra, Ranveer will step into the shoes of Don in the reboot of this Farhan Akhtar-directed film.
