Bhansali locks the lead actor for Baiju Bawra

Sanjay Leela Bhansali has wrapped up the filming of 'Gangubai Kathiawadi' and has already started working on 'Heera Mandi'. Apart from these, he also has plans for a film titled 'Baiju Bawra' and reports suggest that he has even casted the lead for his film. Ranbir Kapoor was rumored to play the titular role sometime ago in this musical drama but it was later reported that he walked out.

Bhansali's team, however, denied this as they said, "Ranbir has not been offered Baiju Bawra. The only time Ranbir turned down a role in a Bhansali film was when he was offered Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai starrer Guzaarish. Bhansali offered him the role that was eventually played by Aditya Roy Kapur.”

Briefly, Kartik Aaryan was also rumored to be the lead actor but latest reports suggest that actor Ranveer Singh has been roped in as the titular character. The source told Bollywood Hungama, "It is Ranveer Singh who was being seriously considered 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 decided to announce Ranveer Singh in the ambitious grand musical's title role.”
