Producer Sajid Nadiadwala has dropped the idea of making the film 2 States with Shah Rukh Khan as he does not have dates upto the end of 2012, as he would be busy shooting for Yash Chopra’s untitled film.
Sajid now roped in Ranbir Kapoor to play the lead in the film which is an adaptation of the novel by Chetan Bhagat of the same name. According to sources, Ranbir requested Sajid to bring in Imtiaz Ali as the director for the film.
Ranbir and Imtiaz made the film Rockstar which is now in theaters. Though the film is said to be not doing upto the expectation at the box office, Ranbir is said to have developed a good rapport with the director.
