Ranbir Kapoor - Above the Khans?
The heart throb of the nation who has been in the news for all sorts of reasons (good or bad) seems to be taking the 'Kapoor' surname quite seriously. Yes, we are talking about Ranbir Kapoor. The Kapoor's are known to be THE most passionate about cinema and Ranbir is no different. In a recent interview with Mid Day he was quoted as saying that he would love to overtake the Khan's one day even though he is aware that they have been around in the industry for over 25 years. Too ambitious you think?
Perhaps the day is not too far when he goes right on top, what with the kind of movies he is selecting these days. Started with a "Saawariya" and then went onto star in movies that were drastically different from each other in terms of the roles he played: a typical college boy passionate about photography in "Wake Up Sid" and a conniving member of a political family in "Rajneeti" to a struggling singer in "Rockstar". This Kapoor boy has what it to takes to reach the top especially since that is what he striving for. In an interview with NDTV a month back, he spoke about how wanted to be the No.1, and this journey of doing films was to get there. Never the one to mince his words, Ranbir has been extremely forthcoming in his interviews. Too frank for his own good?
The "Rockstar" image on celluloid does not really transpire off screen. For starters, he might need to change his stylist considering his choice of dressing could prove to be a huge letdown for teenagers who make the core of his fan following. Also, in many of his interviews, he comes across as somebody trying too hard to portray a certain kind of image which in reality is not him. The superficiality could turn out to be a letdown.
Well, love him or hate him, this woman's man (though he claims he is far from being one and the one that his mother claims he is) is definitely here to stay since his choice of movies are quite faultless. You agree?
