Although he is considering numerous scripts, his aim is to dedicate more time to his loved ones. He holds a confident standing in his current slate of work while still actively seeking out compelling new projects. Presently, his confirmed works include prominent roles in ‘Don 3’ and ‘Shaktimaan’, alongside Aditya Dhar’s venture which is in the process of being written.”

This project follows ‘HanuMan’. Ranveer’s interest seems keen, making his participation almost a certainty, although the final details are pending. A formal announcement awaits once everything is secured. Mythri Movie Makers is set to produce the film.”
