Ranbir Kapoor, a stalwart of Bollywood, is currently amidst a flurry of projects, each generating significant buzz among fans. Notably, he is deeply entrenched in the filming of Nitesh Tiwari’s ambitious ‘Ramayana,’ an epic venture that has recently encountered legal tussles concerning intellectual property rights. Despite these challenges, production for the magnum opus remains undeterred, with Kapoor’s commitment unwavering.

The legal contention, primarily involving Allu Mantena Media Ventures LLP and Prime Focus Technologies Limited, has stirred headlines, yet it hasn’t impeded the momentum of ‘Ramayana’s’ production. Amidst the legal backdrop, the film, which also stars Sai Pallavi, continues its journey towards cinematic grandeur.

While reports suggest the possibility of the ‘Ramayana’ shoot extending beyond its initial timeline, insiders assure that this development will not hinder Ranbir Kapoor’s forthcoming venture, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Love And War.’ Scheduled to commence filming in November 2024, ‘Love And War’ promises to be another milestone in Kapoor’s illustrious career, featuring him alongside Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal.

Despite the potential overlap in schedules, Kapoor is set to seamlessly transition between projects. According to reports, he will continue filming for ‘Ramayana’ while simultaneously gearing up for ‘Love And War’ around late August or early September. Engaging in script readings and discussions with Bhansali, Kapoor will ensure a smooth transition into the latter project, aligning its commencement with the conclusion of the first part of the ‘Ramayana’ trilogy.

As preparations for ‘Love And War’ take shape, Mumbai awaits the grandeur of Bhansali’s vision, with elaborate sets yet to be constructed. Known for his opulent song sequences, Bhansali meticulously plans each detail alongside his production design team. However, the specifics of Vicky Kaushal’s shooting schedule for the film remain undisclosed at this juncture.

In the midst of Kapoor’s professional endeavors, his wife and Bollywood luminary Alia Bhatt remains occupied with her upcoming spy thriller alongside Sharvari Wagh, adding another dimension to the Kapoor-Bhatt power duo’s cinematic repertoire.
