Ranbir Kapoor refused to be part of an international film The Reluctant Fundamentalist which would be directed by award winning film maker Mira Nair. She made a name for herself with films like Salaam Bombay, Mississippi Masala starring Oscar winning Hollywood actor Denzel Washington, Monsoon Wedding and The Namesake.
Ranbir Kapoor was interested in the role but he has to spare almost all of 2012 shooting for Nair’s film. Since he has many commitments in Bollywood he refused Nair’s offer.
Nair’s latest project The Reluctant Fundamentalist is based on a novel by Mohsin Hamid by the same title and deals with lives of a Pakistani and an American in the backdrop of the terror threat to USA.
