Ranveer Singh to play Classical Singer in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next titled Baiju Bawra

After playing a Rapper in Gully Boy, it will be interesting to watch Ranveer Singh play a classical singer on screen, as the actor has been approached by his favorite filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his next titled Baiju Bawra. More details below...


The best actor-director duo Ranveer Singh and Sanjay Leela Bhansali have successfully delivered not one, not two but three major blockbusters together with Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastaani, Padmaavat with of course the beautiful Deepika Padukone as the leading lady in all the three-hit films. This trio is one of the most loved ones by the audience and fans are eager for yet another collaboration to happen as soon as possible.

Marking an end to the long wait, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has roped in his dearest Ranveer Singh for his next titled Baiju Bawra. Earlier, there were speculations that the 83’ actor will be seen alongside Alia Bhatt in SLB’s Gangubai Kathiawadi. However, proving the rumors false, actor Ajay Devgn has been finalized for the film. Reportedly, the filmmaker will start working on Baiju Bawra after he wraps up Gangubai Kathiawadi.

“While Gangubai Kathiawadi is more of a dark emotional, action drama of the world of brothels, crime, dons and rich men who visit the world of brothels, Baiju Bawra is a pure musical and a dramatized version of the story of the uniquely talented singer Baiju Bawra. It’s to Bhansali’s credit that he is choosing to direct two projects in stark contrast to the other. And the filmmaker has offered the lead and title role of the young Baiju Bawra to Ranveer Singh. Who else can play the passionate, emotional, deeply vengeful and yet intensely romantic Baiju, than Ranveer? SLB and Ranveer have definitely met and the filmmaker has offered the young actor the role of Baiju Bawra. The movie won’t start before next year and by then Ranveer would have completed his other films.”

Further, the source adds that the film Baiju Bawra is about a young and extremely talented dhrupad singer-composer by the same name, who challenged composer, musician and Hindustani classical vocalist Tansen, to a singing duel, to avenge the death of his musician father, at the court of Mughal Emperor Akbar. 

“If Ranveer gives his nod to the movie, it will be again another challenging role for him as he will need some training and knowledge as a singer and musician. It will be interesting to see who plays his romantic interest – will it be Deepika Padukone or Priyanka Chopra? Priyanka holds an edge as she’s an internationally acclaimed singer in her own right,” further adds the source.
