Ranbir Kapoor wants to play Mogambo!
We too are surprised after learning of the Barfi! actor’s wish to play a hardcore Bollywood villain
The young heartthrob of Bollywood, Ranbir Kapoor, may have essayed different characters onscreen so far, but he has undoubtedly excelled mostly in romantic roles such as in Bachna Ae Haseeno and Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani among other noticeable ones. We too like his chocolate boy image, hence we did not want him to move away from it!
But considering the versatile performer that he is, Ranbir wishes to play a villain, and his reasons to do so was quite a revelation. “There is something really exciting about villains… they have beautiful girls around them every time, have lots of money and all the luxuries,” said Ranbir and elaborated, “Of the best Bollywood villains, I like Mogambo. Villains have the best life. I really want to play a bad guy. But the only thing is they have to get beaten up by the hero in the end…but then it is okay.”
Wethinks Ranbir has all the potential to take up any challenging role and perform it to the best of his abilities. But the debonair actor’s charming personality and lover boy image can prove to be a hindrance. What say BollywoodLifers?
