Shekhar Kapur plans to revive 20-year-old project, Time Machine, and ropes in Ranbir Kapoor as the lead.
After lying in the cans for more than 20 years, Time Machine, Shekhar Kapur’s prestigious project will finally see the light of day.
Originally starring Aamir Khan, Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia and Raveena Tandon in lead roles, the film was shelved after the producers ran into financial trouble.
After several rumours about Time Machine going back on the floors, this time Shekhar Kapur has finally picked up the project and has reportedly approached Ranbir Kapoor for the lead role. Adlabs will produce it.
Our source says, “Shekhar has been keen on making a film in India for a long time now. He is working on Time Machine’s script with the original writer of the film.
He has already spoken to Ranbir Kapoor, and they are now working out the logistics.
The film is likely to go on the floors by next year, depending on the availability dates of the artistes involved in the film.”
Shekhar Kapur remained unavailable for comment. Incidentally Harman Baweja’s debut film Love Story 2050 is also based on the subject of a time machine.
