Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor has confirmed that the Kishore Kumar biopic has been delayed due to problems with the script. Kapoor is playing the legendary Indian playback singer Kumar for Anurag Basu's film. The actor told : "Yes, we were supposed to do that next. "But he is such a celebrated legend, we believe that unless the script completely celebrates his life in the best possible way, I think it would be wrong for us to touch upon it... so we have kept it aside now.
"We are working on the script and hopefully after we finish Jagga Jasoos we will start on it. It will take a while to come to it." Kumar was a singer whose songs were featured in over 500 Bollywood films. He also acted and directed in dozens of films from the 1950s until his death in 1987. He won 8 Filmfare Awards for the Best Male Playback Singer and holds the record for most number of awards won in that category. Kapoor stars in the recently released comedy Besharam as a streetwise orphan, and has admitted that he is eager to work with directors such as Sujoy Ghosh and Aditya Chopra.
