Ranbir in Rockstar News
Ranbir Kapoor birthday special: a superstar in the making
The Rockstar actor, who turns 29 today, is taking baby steps towards becoming the best actor of his generation
Coming from the industry’s first film family, there were very high expectations riding on him right from his first film Saawariya. Even though the film tanked at the box office, Ranbir Kapoor got great reviews from the audience and the critics. There has been no looking back for the actor since then. After the debacle of his first film, he went on to do a couple of romantic films but refused to get stuck in that zone like his father had many years ago. He quickly did a couple of comedy flicks and now he’s getting into the serious zone as an actor with Rajneeti and Rockstar. He has chosen his films quite carefully with just eight releases in two years. Despite being an average looker and not hitting the jackpot at the BO, people are already calling him the born star.

Ranbir’s character is seen going through a spiritual as well a romantic journey, as he rises to fame as a rockstar. Click here to read more
