Taking this to Bollywood, a senior producer has decided to rope in Ranbir Kapoor in the film as the main lead, it seems.
For an undisclosed amount he bought the remake rights and story rights from Puri Jagannath and Charmme Kaur, the producers of the film.
After Besharam, Ranbir did not try any big mass masala films but this one could be his another try at becoming an action hero.
He has a good following as youthful entertainer and a terrific actor among recent generation. He is doing Brahmastra, Shershah and Ajay Devgn-Luv Ranjan movie has his next releases.
The producer is prepared to wait for him and release the movie with him only as the lead, it seems. To suit him some changes will be made but Ismart Shankar won't turn into a complete class film, it seems.
Since his looks are not as massy as Ram Pothineni's from original, Ranbir might get a makeover like he did for Sanju or the character design could change it seems. More details will be revealed in coming days.
