New Delhi, July 18 -- For the past few days, rumours have been rife that Ranbir Kapoor may have a new co-star, Alia Bhatt, in Ayan Mukerji's untitled next. The buzz is that he'll play a superhero, and the actor himself has decided to let out more on his role.
"I'm excited to play a superhero. When we talk of 'superheroes', we just conjure up images of Spider-Man or Superman. But Ayan isn't writing a film along those lines. I think it's a fantasy film, a mythological (based) in contemporary times. It will have a boy who'll have some sort of superpowers. But right now, it's too early to talk about it," says Ranbir.
The actor, who's worked with his close friend (Ayan) earlier in Wake Up Sid (2009), and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013), says that the latter has "gone completely underground" to write the story. The 32-year-old also adds that the film is very ambitious in both its idea and budget.
"Ayan is thinking big, but he really has to focus on the writing. There's no pressure (on him) to start his film; when he is ready, we will jump into it," says Ranbir.
