These days Ranbir Kapoor is talking about the movie ‘Animal’. In this he is playing the lead role and his opposite is Rashmika Mandanna. The audience loved the film very much. ‘Animal’ was released at the box office on December 1 and is still a big earner. This movie increased Ranbir’s fame many times.
Ranbir Kapoor became the top actor in the industry after the success of ‘Animal’. Before this, his ‘Brahmastra’ was released, which proved to be a hit at the box office. ‘Animal’ was his second consecutive mega hit film. Ranbir now stands in the category of a superstar. But do you know, Ranbir got his first chance because of the leading actor in the industry, if he had not rejected the film, Ranbir might not have reached this position.
Ranbir Kapoor entered the film industry in the year 2007 with the film ‘Saawariya’ and it flopped. Next year he did ‘Bachna Hai Haseeno’ which was well received. In later years, he worked in ‘Wake Up Sid’, ‘Luck by Chance’, ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazam Kahani’, ‘Raajneeti’, ‘Anjaana Anjaani’.
But he got recognition from the movie ‘Rockstar’. This film, released in the year 2011, was directed by Imtiaz Ali. This film was the turning point in Ranbir’s career. But do you know that Ranbir was not the first choice for this film.
Before Ranbir Kapoor, Imtiaz Ali approached Shahid Kapoor with the offer of this film. Shahid has worked with him earlier. But Shahid turned down the film due to other work commitments and Imtiaz went for Ranbir. This movie became a blockbuster and Ranbir Kapoor came out as a different image.
Shahid Kapoor rejected not only Ranbir’s film but also Dhanush, Abhay Deol and Sonam Kapoor starrer ‘Raanjhanaa’. Shahid also rejected Zoya Akhtar’s film ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’. Shahid was also offered ‘Rang De Basanti’, but he already had 3 films, so he turned it down too.
Shahid Kapoor was last seen in the film ‘Bloody Daddy’. This film was well appreciated by the critics, but when it was released on OTT, no revenue figures were released. Before this he was seen in Jersey, which fell at the box office. His film ‘Kabir Singh’, released in the year 2019, proved to be a blockbuster. Since then he has been waiting for a big hit.
