Shashank Khaitan yet to find the leading lady for Ranbhoomi

Shashank Khaitan is about to complete work on his ambitious project Ranbhoomi with Varun Dhawan. This action film was announced last year and is expected to release next year on Diwali. However the director is yet to zero down on the actress.

A source says, “Shashank was in favour of having Alia Bhatt on board as he has worked with her and Varun and Alia’s pair too has worked well on screen. But it looks like she may not be able to do the film as she has quite a few films in her kitty. Another option was Parineeti Chopra. If things go well then she will do the film as for now she has signed two new films that is Saina Nehwal biopic and Bhuj. But Ranbhoomi will begin by end of this year so she will be able to adjust her dates accordingly. But there is no confirmation on these names from the makers.”

The buzz suggest other names like Jhanvi Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar are also being considered for the film but that too is not confirmed.
