  • who said ranbeer kapoor is self made actor ranbeer done his max films with established director sanjay leela bhansali, shimit amin (chak de india fame), Prakash Jha, Imtiyaz Ali, rajkumar santoshi etc while imran khan had worked with new director. Ranbir is better actor than Imran but acting in jeans of rk . So in my opinion both Imran and Ranbir are superstar of future

  • @SKY: dont talk rubbish man. if an actor works with a big director, it doesnt mean that he is not a self made actor. ranbir worked with ayan mukerjee as well..remember???? imran may have worked with new directors, but with BIG banners..and with the backup of mamu aamir. (banner of the movie is the biggest thing than the director) may be ranbir has acting in his genes. and he is a very dedicated actor and intelligent in choosing characters. not like imran. it may be genes or anything, ranbir is a better actor and a superstar than doubt..and its obvious that whoever is jealous of ranbir talks rubbish things about him..

  • Ranbir does not need to worry of imran acting because, he always act the same type of style.The main danger for ranbir is Ranveer singh who is better than IMRAN KHAN in EVERY LEVEL OF ACTING.

  • @ Indicine team

    Didnt expect such shoddy commentary from ur side.

    EMAET is average at best & wont do more than 40 crs.

    I hope u correct the numbers & the verdict.

    Rockstar was too an above average/semi-hit grosser . stop inflating the numbers & the verdicts.

    The stardom of both ranbir & imran is only limited to a specific demography & i bet either of the so called stars wud have ceased to exist in the pre mutliplex bloom era…specially imran who has his mamu to thank for all the attention & a major share of the successes he has got until now.
