Anurag Basu’s biopic on Kishore Kumar kept on hold

We had reported earlier that Anurag Basu is all set to come out with a biopic on the legend Kishore Kumar and that Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor has been finalized as it’s lead actor. The latest we hear is the film will not be going on floors anytime soon.

The reason behind the film’s delay is the lead actor himself, Ranbir Kapoor. Apparently, RK is currently shooting for Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet and hence has a super packed schedule. More over, he feels that he will not be able to do complete justice to the biopic if he has his leg in to boats.

It is heard that Ranbir has been asked to gain kilos and look old for his character in the Kishore Kumar biopic. And right now, that’s simply impossible for him, as he is already in the middle of his prior commitments.

Buzz is that Anurag Basu’s film will have to wait and that it might go on floors only in 2015.

Meanwhile, it is said that the film will see Ranbir Kapoor paired with four heroines who will essay the role of Kishore’s four wives – Madhubala, Ruma Ghosh, Yogeeta Bali and Leena Chandavarkar.
