Know about Ranbir Kapoor's role in Love & War

According to a report in Pinkvilla, Bhansali has always been a big fan of Ranbir, and his performance in Animal blew his mind away. It was after this he approached the actor for Love & War. While the upcoming film is an action love story on the face of it, the inter-character dynamic holds key importance. Ranbir's character is a "twisted grey character and warrants the presence of someone who is not just a great actor but also a superstar," the source told the portal.

It’s a solid subject with strong scope for performance and that’s what has excited both Ranbir and SLB to reunite after 17 long years,” the source added.
