New Delhi: Ranveer Singh, who has been making headlines after posing nude for a popular magazine, is all set to make his way to Hollywood. The actor, who recently collaborated with adventurer Bear Grylls for Netflix’ special Ranveer Vs Wild With Bear Grylls will soon be seen in an action series.

According to ANI, “There is a huge development brewing for Ranveer. To be offered a big-budget action-adventure mini-series that will also feature a prominent Hollywood action superstar is pretty much an indicator of the appeal and reach that Ranveer Singh has built over the years in the West with his phenomenal performances. He has shaped pop culture in India and among Indians as we know today through his work and how he leads his life.”

“So, it is not surprising that the Western entertainment industry is trying to mount a massive project with him in the lead along with an action superstar from Hollywood,” the report added.

The project is expected to go on floors soon.

Ranveer has a packed schedule. The Bajirao star is currently busy with the Rohit Shetty’s Cirkus, Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani and maverick South director S. Shankar’s retelling of his cult classic Anniyan. He will also have a couple of more film announcements soon for which shoot dates have been pre-committed to top filmmakers.

“Juggling his schedule to make this work will be key. We are hoping that this pans out correct because, without someone like Ranveer helming the top billed cast, this project won’t fly,” the report by ANI added.

Ranveer Singh was recently caught into the eye of the storm. The Mumbai Police on Tuesday registered a First Information Report (FIR) against Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh over his nude pictures on social media, an official said.

A Mumbai-based Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) had approached the Chembur police here with a complaint against the actor. Based on it, the police registered the FIR against Singh under various Indian Penal Code Sections like 292 (sale of obscene books, etc), 293 (sale of obscene objects to young people), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and provisions of the Information Technology Act, an official from the Chembur police station said.

An office-bearer of the NGO had alleged that the actor has hurt the sentiments of women in general and insulted their modesty through his photographs, police earlier said.

The FIR stated that India has a “good culture” but due to such pictures everyone’s sentiments are hurt. It said a large number of people, including youngsters, celebrities and others follow the Bollywood actor who has craze among various sections.
