Ranbir overtakes Saif and Kareena by 18 crores
Two-film-old Ranbir Kapoor should be feeling quite proud of himself. The young actor’s latest film has a budget which exceeds Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor’s next film by 18 crores. Ranbir’s Wake Up Sid as well as Saif and Kareena’s Jehaad are both being produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. WAKE Up Sid is a romance set in Mumbai revolving around a good looking young man (Ranbir Kapoor) who falls for an older, simple woman (Konkona Sen Sharma), who is a writer from Kolkata. A source from the production team says, “The film’s budget was initially 80 crores but due to the recent market condition, it was reduced to 60 crores. Hopefully, the film will release in October this year.
As for Renzil D’Silva’s Jehaad, starring Saif and Kareena, a source says that it has an estimated budget of 42 crores. The source adds, “The film, based on terrorism, revolves around an Indian woman (Kareena Kapoor) who marries and moves to the US. Later, she finds out that her husband is a part of a terrorist group. It will release this year.The news is surprising as Saif and Kareena are considered the hottest pair in Bollywood right now and they are the most expensive brand as a couple. In addition to this, Saif has appeared in 50 films and Ranbir’s cousin, Kareena, has done 38 films. But Dharma Productions doesn’t seem to think these are good enough reasons to splurge on Jehaad’s budget.
Rumours doing the rounds that establish Karan’s high hopes for Wake Up Sid are that he has given the distribution rights of the film to UTV Motion Pictures, making it an exception as all his previous films have always been distributed by Yash Raj.
