  • comparing imran with ranbir is just like comparing vinod khanna with Amitabh Bachcchan which is quite unfair to actor with limited expressions and caliber like imran khan. while ranbir is way versatile and truly a rockstar. He is next hrithik roshan in the making. Imran and ranbir both has excellent screen presence while both of them r future of bollywood. Ranbir also has potential of joining khans bandwagon in terms of euphoric fan following which even hrithik roshan cannot join till date. hence let these guys remain uncompared and let them do what both of them r good at but if u make comparisions imran will definitely pale infront of ranbir.

  • 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 imran..no doubt..and its obvious that whoever is jealous of ranbir talks rubbish things about him..
