Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Ranveer Singh have worked together in three super-hit movies such as Galiyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat. Rumours were all over the place that the film-maker is keen to cast the actor in his next film as well, but it looks like the film-maker has other plans. Yes, reports state that SLB has approached Tiger Shroff to play the lead in his next and not Ranveer Singh!
Also, it is reported that Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next is based on a novel that is yet to be released. The novel in question will hit the bookstores only when the film is nearing its release. It was previously stated that SLB's next would be made on the book 'The Immortals of Meluha', but that's not the case, as Mumbai Mirror quoted a source by saying,
"Contrary to speculation, the book in question is not The Immortals of Meluha but along similar lines. It is yet to be released and could hit the bookstores around the same time as the film's arrival if everything falls into place. SLB and Tiger have had several meetings on the subject and both are keen to join hands with Amish on what will undoubtedly be one of the most-talked-about projects in recent times. Tiger is yet to give the nod given his packed schedule, but is trying to work out the dates as he doesn't want to lose out on the opportunity of working with one of his favourite directors."
Tiger Shroff is currently shooting for Student Of The Year 2 and gearing up for a movie with Hrithik Roshan and has Baaghi 3 on the pipeline and has his hands full. The actor has not given his nod to Sanjay Leela Bhansali yet, but he's keen to star in the project, as an opportunity to act in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film comes only once in a lifetime and he doesn't want to miss it.
