After Hrithik Roshan, who made his debut more than a decade ago, Bollywood is yet to find it’s next ‘superstar’ this millennium. Apart from Roshan, the Khan’s and Akshay Kumar.. the search for someone young with mass-appeal, someone who can guarantee a good initial at the box office.. is still on or is it?
The most likely contender is Ranbir Kapoor, whose fan-following has been growing with every release. His career started with the dreadful Saawariya, which was decimated by Shahrukh Khan’s Om Shanti Om, four years back in 2007.
Since then Ranbir has appeared in 7 films (excluding special appearances) and all his films have recovered it’s investment. While Rajneeti and Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani were massive hits, his most recent release Rockstar is his biggest solo-grosser ever.
Not only is Ranbir a good actor, he isn’t scared of experimenting with the kind of characters that he chooses to play on the big screen. Rocket Singh, Rajneeti and even Rockstar weren’t stereotypical roles, but did wonders to his career.
Is Ranbir Kapoor a superstar? Is he capable of taking over the reins from the Khan’s say 5 years from now? What do you think? Tell us in the comments section below.
