Things are really falling very well in place for Ranbir Kapoor. Though no one can ever claim around strategizing and planning his career, especially in an unpredictable field like cinema, one does observe that for Ranbir it has been some smart choice of films that has made him come so close to the top in just 2 years.
Starting with SAAWARIYA, the young man had showed what he was made of. The film failed, not Ranbir, a fact that would have to be accepted by even his harshest detractors. In his next BACHNA AE HASEENO, he got a decent success to his name. The film further established that if one was looking for a lover boy belonging to current generation, Ranbir was the one to go.
WAKE UP SID further proved that Ranbir was willing to experiment with his roles. Neither SAAWARIYA nor BACHNA AE HASEENO had him in conventional roles while WAKE UP SID was perhaps the most unconventional that a rising star in a commercial set up could have thought of. The film took Ranbir's career best opening to turn into a very good success week after week.
However, superstardom was still being awaited, something which did knock his doors within a matter of days with AJAB PREM KI GHAZAB KAHANI turning out to be a massive success. The film's opening has not just shocked the trade; it has suddenly resulted in extremely high expectations from Ranbir who now has a bar raised for himself.
Exactly a month from now, Ranbir would be seen in ROCKET SINGH - SALESMAN OF THE YEAR which boasts of CHAK DE INDIA team of Yash Raj Films and Shimit Amin coming together. With Ranbir adding further value to this potent combination, the film would now be keenly awaited as it hits the screens on 11th December.
