Ranbir Kapoor fan-following is growing with each new release. His first film, Saawariya (2007) directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, was a box-office disaster and remains his only film that was rejected by the audience. A year later, Ranbir returned with Bachna Ae Haseeno which did reasonably well at the box-office.
But it was the year 2009 that Ranbir established himself in the industry. Wake Up Sid started slowed but grew on word-of-mouth. Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani was a box-office super-hit and Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year earned him critical acclaim and also won him the Filmfare Best Actor critics award.
2010 was great too, with two releases – Rajneeti which remains the biggest hit of Ranbir’s career and Anjaana Anjaani with Priyanka Chopra was an average grosser.
Rockstar was probably the biggest film of his career and the expectations were high. While the post-release reactions are mixed, Rockstar is Ranbir’s biggest box-office opener ever! The film, which has limited mass-appeal, is likely to touch the 35 crore mark in 3 days.
After Aamir, Hrithik, SRK, Salman, Akshay and Ajay Devgan, Ranbir is amongst the 7 most bankable stars in Bollywood. Being the youngest, he has bright future ahead.
