Guess Ranbir Kapoor has had his share of offbeat films after BARFI!. Though the film did turn out to be a huge money-spinner and turned out to be Ranbir's 100 crore superhit, he is now aiming at exploring more mainstream genres. One such film is a yet untitled affair with director Vikram Singh which has been designed as an out and out action thriller.
'It is the first step Ranbir is foraying into this genre,' informs a source, 'Though he has been around for six years and has played across genres, including romantic as well as coming-of-age tales, he has never done an action film. The closest he has come to holding a gun has been in RAAJNEETI but there too it was for a very brief portion in the film. In Vikram's film, he would be seen in an altogether different light.'
While the film also stars Arjun Rampal, who had played Ranbir's elder brother in RAAJNEETI, the T-Series production is said to be a high octane affair which would turn out to be a complete image changer for the youngest superstar in the industry today.
'Though at the core of it the film would have a strong romantic element to it with good music holding centre-stage, the overall pitch would carry a lot of stylised action and thrills. The film would go on floors in December this year,' the source adds.
For the actor who would soon be seen in YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI and then later in the year, BESHARAM, it is apparent that Ranbir would be celebrating some out and out commercial outings ahead in months to follow.
