Amid the reports of Sanjay Leela Bhansali remaking the musical magnum opus, Baiju Bawra, we thought we’d ask you who among Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, and Hrithik Roshan would be perfect to play the lead role in the remake?


img

One of the remakes that have been the talk of the town since the longest time is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Baiju Bawra. The prolific filmmaker has had the rights of the film for some time and had announced that he will be working on the same. Since then, several reports of the leading man have been coming in with names like Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Hrithik Roshan as Baiju.
Originally, Baiju Bawra starred Bharat Bhushan as Baiju and Meena Kumari as Gauri. The story revolved around a man who wants to seek revenge from Tansen, one of the Akbar’s Navratnas, for his father’s death. But the only way to defeat Tansen is by challenging him in a musical duel. For this, Baiju learns music and his beloved Gauri also helps him. The story does have a tragic ending but it is one of the classic Bollywood films. A while back, several reports stated that Bhansali had approached Hrithik Roshan for Baiju’s role and that he had consented to the same. However, no announcement was made and after War, Hrithik hasn’t revealed his next till now.
Also, certain reports put forth Ranveer Singh’s name for Baiju’s role. Ranveer and Bhansali have worked in films like Ram Leela, Padmaavat and Bajirao Mastani. Hence, if they do decide to come together for this role, it would surely grab everyone’s attention. However, soon those reports also fizzled out and now, the latest reports state that Ranbir Kapoor has been approached to play the role of Baiju by Bhansali for Baiju Bawra remake. A recent report by Bollywood Hungama mentioned the same. However, it also revealed that Deepika Padukone might be a part of it. But nothing has been officially confirmed about it as of now due to the lockdown. Also, Ranbir has two films lined up, Shamshera and Brahmastra for 2020.

We decided to look at memorable characters from Hindi films who could make for the perfect spin-off subjects. And first on our list - Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra from Kapoor & Sons.


img

Over the last few years, Hindi films have given us many memorable characters. Be it lead characters, villains or couples, the characters have created a lasting impression on the minds of cinema lovers. From Alia Bhatt in Raazi to Ranveer Singh as Khilji to Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao's adorable chemistry in Badhaai Ho, content-driven films have raised the expectations of audiences even more. One such film which won hearts at the box office was Kapoor & Sons starring Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan in 2016.
Today, we are taking a look at Shakun Batra's Kapoor & Sons characters Arjun and Tia Malik played by Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt respectively and how their love story can be the perfect spin-off film.
Arjun and Tia's characters who fall in love with each other, slowly and steadily, are one of the many highlights of the film. Towards the end, we get to see them reuniting after their brief misunderstanding causes a rift. They seal it with a kiss and their love story definitely gets a happy ending.
What would Arjun and Tia be like today?
With Arjun rediscovering the truth about his book, we can totally imagine him as a well published author and a successful one at that. While in the film Arjun struggles to get his books published, the spin off could portray him as a best selling author to take the story forward. While Tia's profession wasn't established in Kapoor & Sons, the spin off can give an insight into what Tia loves doing now and whether she's still the same girl who loves to party.
Arjun and Tia's love story could be re-imagined in multiple ways for a spin off. From showing them madly in love with each other even today to troubles that crop up in their relationship because of the past, the possibilities are endless. Given the fact that Alia and Sidharth have been former lovers off screen as well, we are sure their fans will be quite excited to see them back together on the big screen.
Do you think a spin off on Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra's characters could make for a great Kapoor & Sons spin off?
