It was earlier announced that Mahesh Babu would also star in the Hindi version of Businessman. But the mixed talks have reportedly made the Pokiri actor to opt out of the project. Hence, director Puri Jagannath has decided to cast Ranbir Kapoor.
If reports are to be believed, Ram Gopal Varma has decided to produce the Hindi version of Businessman. He has screened the movie for Ranbir Kapoor and has convinced the Bollywood actor to star in the movie. There are also chances of Kajal Aggarwal repeating her role in the Hindi version, reports add.
It may be recalled, Puri Jagannath had claimed before that Abhishek Bachchan would star in the Hindi Businessman but his plan to cast the Junior B was dropped following some financial issues with AB Corp. Hence, he decided to rope in Mahesh Babu for the Bollywood version as well.
