    While neither Ranbir nor Ayan have confirmed the same, Ranbir opened up about his role in the talked about film.

    "I am excited to play the role of a superhero, but when we talk of superheroes, we just have one image - Spider-Man or Superman. But he (Ayan) isn't writing a film along those lines. I think it's a fantasy-based film, a mythological (based) in contemporary times. And it will have a boy who will have some form of superpowers. But right now, it's too early to talk about it," says Ranbir.

    The actor, who has worked with his close friend Ayan earlier as well, says that the latter has "gone completely underground" trying to write the story. 

    Ranbir also adds that the film is very ambitious in idea, as well as budget. 

    "Ayan is thinking big, but for that he really has to concentrate on the writing part. Right now, he needs at least a year more for writing. I have always believed that Ayan is a genius writer. He is in touch with reality, how people are and the dynamics of a relationship between people. He is simple, so he doesn't make over-intelligent or niche films. There's no pressure to start his film; when he is ready, we will jump into it," Ranbir further added.
