Director Ayan Mukerji has revealed that his upcoming romantic-fantasy film with Ranbir Kapoor will see the actor in the role of a man with special power in the form of fire. This is the third collaboration between Ayan and Ranbir after the duo worked together in “Wake Up Sid” and “Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani”.

The upcoming film, also starring Alia Bhatt, has been tentatively titled “Dragon”. “I have not locked the title yet. ‘Dragon’ is just the tentative title. It was called Dragon because in the film, the boy has connection with fire. It is his power. The guy has a mystical connection with fire. So, I called it ‘Dragon’. There’s something I like about the word,” Ayan told reporters.

Ranbir, who is currently shooting for Sanjay Dutt’s biopic, is expected to start filming Ayan’s film in August. The dorector said that the actor will have to go to extra lengths for “Dragon”. “Ranbir will have to put a lot of extra efforts for the movie. There’s so much stuff in the film like action, dance, movements… I hope he is going to do a lot in the film.”
