Karan Johar's guests at Koffee with Karan may just be singing a different tune in the next season. Early this year when asked to choose between Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan as the hottest future superstar, practically all guests had laid their bets on Ranbir. However the success of DELHI BELLY may just tilt the favour towards Imran. Well, for some time at the least.

'Unlike Ranbir, Imran hasn't enjoyed a fancy journey so far at the box office even though he has been making a steady progress for sure,' says a filmmaker on condition of anonymity, 'Ranbir has been enjoying all the media attention with his high profile projects and an almost spotless record. Even his flops like SAAWARIYA and ROCKET SINGH - SALESMAN OF THE YEAR fetched him critical acclaim. However Imran has been catching up fast as well. After LUCK, KIDNAP and BREAK KE BAAD fiasco, he chose to go slow but steady.'


Result were films like I HATE LUV STORYS and DELHI BELLY worked with the youth and have also been commercial successes.

CHECK OUT: Imran on his rivalry with Ranbir

'Ranbir had expensive biggies like RAAJNEETI and ANJAANA ANJAANI made with him while Imran was mainly playing around in mid-sized ventures. So while most in the industry were valuing Ranbir's positioning more, Imran too has now emerged as a strong enough rival. After DELHI BELLY, the rivalry has only gone further notches up as Irman has enjoyed a huge opening for his film. And this, despite the film being delayed by almost three years,' comments a trade source.

Though Imran isn't paying much heed to the rivalry, he is happy about the way things have been laid down for him. 'This year is special as I have worked with top three banners belonging to Yash Chopra, Karan Johar and Aamir Khan. Of course I am happy. It is fantastic.'
