A few days back, actor Ranveer’s name was associated with mega-budget superhero films like Shaktimaan and Nagraj, after which it is believed that the actor’s Nagraj has gone into cold storage.
Ranveer Singh’s Nagraj shelved
There were reports about Bollywood actor Ranveer that he will be seen playing the main character in a superhero film based on Raj Comics’ famous character Nagraj. The film was supposed to be produced by Karan Johar under his own banner but it looks like this mega-budget film has gone on the backburner. If you are wondering why we are saying this, then let us tell you that Ranveer’s name is associated with Bollywood’s upcoming superhero film ‘Shaktimaan’. Shaktimaan is the famous superhero character of India, on which the film is now going to be made. According to media reports, Ranveer will be seen playing the main character in this film.
If he signs this film, then a mega-budget film like ‘Nagraj’ may remain in cold storage for a long time. Trade pundits believe that he will not do ‘Nagraj’ if he signs ‘Shaktimaan’ as a Bollywood actor who can portray only one Indian superhero on screen. If ‘Shaktimaan’ is successful at the box office, he will not be seen in any other superhero character.
Trade pundits are saying this because actor Hrithik Roshan is unable to play any other superhero character after becoming ‘Krrish‘. Sometime back director Rohit Dhawan had offered Hrithik Roshan his superhero film but never went on floors, due to the audience’s acceptance of Hrithik as ‘Krrish’. Hrithik Roshan did not want him to damage the popularity of ‘Krrish’ by playing a new superhero. By the way, in which character do you want to see Ranveer between Nagraj and Shaktimaan?
