Ranbir Kapoor impresses Paresh Rawal
It’s not just awards and accolades at almost every award function, the Rockstar actor is being applauded by his seniors in the industry as well
Ranbir Kapoor did make a false start in Bollywood with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya, but he undid the damage with a string of films where his performance was appreciated and applauded by everyone. With the success of Rockstar, he has become the toast of the town and every filmmaker worth his bound script has been queuing outside his door to get him to sign on the dotted line. We heard that RK Jr has agreed to do filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s forthcoming ambitious film, Bombay Velvet, and is totally gung-ho about it.
Ranbir now has a new fan in actor Paresh Rawal who is thoroughly impressed by him. Though they haven’t worked together yet, the admiration the senior actor has shown for the Rockstar actor speaks for itself. Recently, when asked about young actors in Bollywood who could make it big in the future, Paresh excitedly named Ranbir and “no one else”. He added, “Raajneeti was superlative. All the other guys looked pale compared to him. Ranbir Kapoor is terrific. He is the future.” While we almost agree with what Mr Rawal has to say, wethinks it isn’t good to completely ignore Ranbir’s contemporaries, no?
