Ranbir Kapoor to gain weight for Kishore Kumar biopic


Ranbir Kapoor who is bagging all the awards for Best Actor this season for this performance in Barfi has yet another interesting project lined up. The actor has been signed for a movie which will be based on legendary singer-actor Kishore Kumar’s life. The movie will be directed by Anurag Basu and apparently Ranbir will have to gain a lot of weight for the role. He will be playing Kishore Kumar from the age of 19 to 58 and to look the part the actor will have to gain around 15-20 kgs (quite a lot!).

According to Anurag Basu the film is extremely challenging not only for Ranbir but for also him as a director. “I will most likely start the shoot by the end of this year. The film needs a lot of preparation. It’s a tough one for both Ranbir and me”, said Anurag while talking about the film to a leading daily. Well knowing Ranbir and how he makes every character memorable this is one movie we are looking forward to!
