Ranbir Kapoor, known for his versatility, is set to explore his dark side once again in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming project Love and War. Speculations suggest that Kapoor will delve into a complex character with shades of grey, alongside his wife Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal in this ambitious venture, which centres around a love triangle set against the backdrop of war.
Following his acclaimed performance in Animal, reports indicate that Bhansali was impressed and chose Kapoor for this intricate role described as emotionally layered with underlying psychological nuances. The character demands exceptional acting skills and the charisma of a superstar, qualities Bhansali believed Kapoor possessed perfectly.
The official cast announcement for the film was made last month through a social media post. This project marks Kapoor’s second collaboration with Alia, following Brahmastra, and second with Vicky after their stint in Sanju. Additionally, Alia will reunite with Vicky, her co-star from Raazi.
Love and War is slated to begin filming by the end of 2024 with an extensive production schedule. With preparations underway, the team aims for a Christmas 2025 release, making it one of the highly anticipated projects in the coming years.
