Slow and steady wins the race! This old proverb holds true for Bollywood's newest superstar, Ranbir Kapoor. Starting his career with a flop in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's much hyped SAAWARIYA, Ranbir went one step ahead and his second film with Yash Raj Films', BACHNA AE HASEENO, turned out to be a successful venture. And with his third film, Dharma Productions, WAKE UP SID (that released last Friday), Ranbir has consolidated his position further, as it appears from the strong start which the film has taken across multiplexes (against a Govinda-David Dhawan starrer!), that the 16-17 crore film will turn out to be the first hit of Ranbir Kapoor's career, although its early days yet. But what should be kept in mind that with each consecutive outing, the box-office performance of Ranbir Kapoor starrers have constantly improved. This proves that the public has accepted Ranbir Kapoor as a star and they await his films, as is evident from the strong start that most of his films have taken at the ticket window .
Towards the later part of the year, things will only get better for Ranbir as he has two aces up his sleeve in the form of Rajkumar Santoshi's AJAB PREM KI GHAZAB KAHANI, opposite numero-uno actress, Katrina Kaif (the promos of the film are already looking extremely exciting), and Shimit Amin's (of CHAK DE! INDIA fame) ROCKET SINGH - SALESMAN OF THE YEAR. And let's not forget Prakash Jha's hard hitting RAJNEETI, where Ranbir essays a very special cameo.
Well, it appears that Ranbir's journey to super stardom has already commenced and the humble star seems to be enjoying every bit of it.
