NEW DELHI: Imagine Ranbir Kapoor in his grandfather Raj Kapoor’s "Englishtani" pants and "Japani" shoes.

A Deccan Chronicle report said, the 33-year-old actor will be portraying Raj Kapoor in a biopic that will be produced under the family’s banner RK Films.

“It is the Kapoor khandaan’s most cherished dream project. They’ve wanted to make a biopic on Raj saab for the longest time. Until Ranbir became an actor they couldn’t think of anyone who could fit the bill. Now the project is finally gaining shape,” said a source very close to the Kapoor family.

It has always been said that Ranbir has been fascinated with Raj Kapoor’s work for the longest tome and knows them inside-out.

 Reportedly, Randhir and Rishi Kapoor want to revive the RK Films banner, which has been dormant for years now, with the biopic.

“Randhir and Rishi Kapoor would like to revive the banner with a biopic on Raj Kapoor. The brothers are in agreement. They feel Ranbir is the best person to play Raj saab,” revealed a member from the Kapoor clan.
