Ranbir Kapoor reveals this about Dragon co-star Alia

New Delhi: Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt will soon hit the big screen together in Ayan Mukerji's next tentatively titled 'Dragon' and this is for the first time that the two have been paired opposite each other in a film. But, in his recent interview the Rockstar actor recalled the time when they shot for a photo shoot with Alia for Sanjay Leela Bhansali. 

According to a report in "The Hindustan Times", Ranbir was asked if he is excited about 'Dragon' with Alia. To this, he said, "Absolutely! Actually, not many people know this but Alia and I had done a photo shoot together for Sanjay Leela Bhansali when I was 20 years old and she was about 12 or even younger; I don't know exactly how old she was. Sanjay sir wanted to make his version of 'Balika Badhu' with us so hamne ek full photo shoot kiya tha (we had done a complete photo shoot), so I am connected to her since then. She is a fine actor, very unassuming about her success and talent. Plus, she is very evolved, cool and chilled out, so I am looking forward to the film." Ranbir further added, "I think I can create a distinct creative partnership with Alia. I hope our energies come together because the whole film depends a lot on our relationship. And as actors, we both have an opportunity, and I hope we can make the best use of it. I don't think I could have asked for a better film to work in with her."

 

Talking about the film, Ranbir revealed, "Well, it's not really a superhero film because the word 'superhero' comes with a preconceived notion about it. The film is, as Ayan puts it, 'a magical romantic fairy tale set in contemporary times.' It's got a great cast too with Alia Bhatt and Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) in the film. Other superb actors are also being cast in it. It's a film that has been written in a trilogy format so there will be three parts, which Ayan will make over a period of eight years. It's also very exciting, and risky at the same time because it's something that has never been tried before."

 

Well, with Ranbir and Alia opposite each other and Big B playing a pivotal role, let us hope that 'Dragon' breaks all box office records.
