Ranbir Kapoor, who has received mixed response for his recent movie Rockstar directed by Imtiaz Ali, has denied the reports, which claimed that the actor wanted the filmmaker to direct the screen-adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's 2 States. The Bollywood actor says that the reports are false and not true.
Speaking to a leading daily, Ranbir Kapoor said that Sajid Nadiadwala has offered him 2 States but he has not finalised the deal yet. The actor is yet to read the script and he is not teaming up with Imtiaz Ali. The 29-year-old doubts whether the filmmaker is even aware of the book.
2 States was earlier offered to Shahrukh Khan and it was reported that Vishal Bharadwaj would direct the film. However, they left the film for the reasons best known to them. Talking about it, Ranbir Kapoor decides to play safe by claiming that he is not concerned about why they opted out of the movie and when the project fell in his laps, nobody was involved.
However, the film 2 States revolves around the story of a north Indian guy, who is in love with a south Indian girl.
