A couple of months back, the MUNNABHAI fame director, Rajkumar Hirani was in the limelight for his next venture, starring Shah Rukh Khan and John Abraham. However the project did not take off, like many previous dream castings. While it is still not clear whether SRK has finally refused the movie or will take it up at a later stage, the fantasy castings are already in place!

As per one circulating story, it?s the new teenage heartthrob, Ranbir 'Saawariya' Kapoor, who has been roped in to play the pivotal role. Another one doing the rounds has the hot 'n' happening Abhishek Bachchan essaying the main lead.

As we await the factual position, the man at the helm of affairs, Rajkumar Hirani has clarified that his project is not based on celebrated writer Chetan Bhagat's, FIVE POINT SOMEONE or set in the I.I.T. (Indian Institute of Technology) campus. He does add that the central theme is definitely the current Indian education system.
