ROCKET SINGH - SALESMAN OF THE YEAR is up for release in a week from now. Yet again, Ranbir Kapoor would be seen as a young man who is fresh out of college and trying to find a foothold in life. This means that other than WAKE UP SID and AJAB PREM KI GHAZAB KAHANI, even in ROCKET SINGH - SALESMAN OF THE YEAR he is continuing to play characters belonging to the same age group.
"Today, I am 26 years old and one thing that I am really sure about is that I would continue to play roles that suit my age. Yes, all the films that you mention do have me playing a young character but that's all cool. Tomorrow when I turn 40, I would play other kind of roles too", says Ranbir in a matter of fact tone.
Now that he is knocking the doors of the top league dominated by actors who have been around for one or two decades, does he have an action plan in place? After all Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan do a movie once every one or two years, Shah Rukh Khan too has become extremely choosy about his projects, Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor have reinvented themselves with diverse roles in each of their recent films whereas Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan are still happy to be seen in multiple massy films. After SAAWARIYA, was Ranbir too having a plan chalked out that resulted in the kind of films that he is being seen today?
He nods in disagreement, "No, I haven't really planned out anything like this. Different films are coming my way and I pick and choose them based on what I like. I don't quite worry much about how they would eventually be accepted by audiences and whether they would set me in a particular image."
