Bollywood actors Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, who are rumoured to be dating each other, will soon be seen together in remake of Telugu film Magadheera, it was reported. The couple, who shared great onscreen chemistry in Rajneeti and Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani, are back together. Reportedly, Ranbir will play the lead role essayed by Ram Charan in the original and Katrina will essay the role Kajal Agrawal played.
Ranbir will undergo meticulous training to get in shape for his role. “Ranbir has got a detailed brief on how he needs to make his body match the role he will play,” a source is reported to have said.
However, Ranbir wasn’t the first but the fourth choice for the film. “It has been an uphill task for Madhu Mantena to finalise the cast of the film. Madhu wanted Aamir to do the film but after watching the original, Aamir met with the director at his residence and politely refused. Madhu also spoke to Hrithik Roshan and Shahid Kapoor for the film but they were also not keen to do it,” added the source.
Katrina has spoken to the co-producer and will be signing on the dotted line soon. However, she denied signing the film.
Director Madhu Mantena is tight-lipped about the casting. “We will let you know when actors are signed,” he said.
