Ranbir Kapoor is an inexorable starlight in the Bollywood industry. He began his career in Bollywood as an assistant director for a couple of films before debuting in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Saawariya’ (2007). Ever since then he’s been treating us with a wonderful selection of stories and stellar acting.
For most of the Tamil audience who show amiable interest in Bollywood, I’m sure one or the other movies of Ranbir are on your favorites list. It is his earnest approach to his roles as an individual that makes him special. Playing a dumb simpleton and thief in Barfi, playing a humble salesman in Rocket Singh and a spoilt rich kid learning life and its responsibility in Wake Up Sid, there is a whole list on arches and you can notice his earnest and honest soul to his acting in commercial movies too.
The amount of dedication Ranbir put into making Sanju as perfect as possible, stunned the audience. His hard work and phenomenal performance visibly glowed on screen. Rockstar deserves a special appreciation for portraying a soul-felt journey of passion and showing how godly and destructive love can be. The themes of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Tamasha may outwardly look similar, but deeper inspection will show you that they are like the antithesis to each other. We dream along with Bunny and we also cry and act along with Dev, making both the movies very special to the audience. And it sure was a delight to watch a musical movie like Jagga Jasoos though it didn’t do well in the box office.
What separates Ranbir from the rest is his vulnerability with each role, we can see Ranbir being and not just acting as these different human beings in each story. It’s not like he has an everyday normal face like Nawaz or a really beautiful one like Shah Rukh but he pulls it out at the end because it’s just honest and raw. He’s sincere and candid with every role he takes up.
Ranbir turns 38 today and fans are fervently waiting for his comeback.
Happy Birthday, Rk.
