Abhishek and Shahid losing sleep over Ranbir’s success

Mumbai: Talk as much they can about their friendship, when it comes to competition, its business as usual. And this is not only limited to the female brigade in B-town, it is also prevalent among the top male actors in the industry.

News has it that many filmmakers are vying for the latest heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor as their lead, thereby making other talented lads of Bollywood go green.

With the latest scheme of things, Abhishek Bachchan and Shahid Kapoor have reasons enough to sit back and take stock of the Ranbir Kapoor phenomena. Trade sources say that Abhishek and Shahid are keenly observing this young actor, whose growing popularity is making its way into their favourite directors.

With the way things have turned out, it’s bound to cause flutter. Abhishek Bachchan has lost his director Mani Ratnam to Ranbir, even after giving powerful performances in films like ‘Yuva’, ‘Guru’ and the much awaited ‘Raavan’. According to the sources, it’s being said that Ranbir has been roped in for Mani’s next venture.

Another director who wants to cast the ever-charming Ranbir, thereby upsetting Shahid is ‘Jab We Met’ director Imitiaz Ali. It is but natural for Abhi and Shahid to be ‘wee bit jealous’ of Ranbir, especially when both are in dire need of hits, post their mediocre show at the Box Office.

Well, losing directors to whom you owe your biggest success in Bollywood can really be a matter of big concern.
