Karan Johar May Cast Ranbir Kapoor, And Not Shah Rukh Khan, As Lead In His Next

Buzz is that filmmaker Karan Johar has been planning a period drama and apparently, he is keen to rope in Ranbir Kapoor for the lead role in the film. Surprisingly, Karan's close friend, Shah Rukh Khan, isn't likely to feature in the film.

Sources reveal that although Shah Rukh and Karan are very close, it doesn't look like the superstar may be a part of this project. Apparently, Saif Ali Khan may play the second lead in the period drama. There is no news of any leading lady yet, and sources claim that Saif's co-star may be his wife, Kareena Kapoor. The newly married couple will have extended cameos in the film. However, Ranbir's heroine is yet to be decided upon.


Shah Rukh Khan has worked in four Karan Johar's directorial ventures. It will be interesting to see Ranbir Kapoor taking on this mantle.
