Will Barfi! Be Ranbir Kapoor’s Ticket To Rs 100 Crore Box Office Club?
Ranbir Kapoor who was born into the prestigious “Kapoor” clan , where he is a fourth actor debuted with a disaster Saawariya. His performance in the movie earned him many debut awards, but the movie was a commercial flop, as it could not withstand the tough competition from Shah Rukh Khan’s Om Shanti Om. Ranbir the Kapoor scion has always been choosy when it comes to films. He has always preferred sole actor movies with the exception of Raajneeti. Raajneeti had a huge star-cast however it was his role that impressed the audiences and the critics.
Ranbir even though being in Bollywood for 5 years has managed to give just 2 hit movies namely- Raajneeti and Ajab Prem ki Gajab Kahaani. His Other movies did average business at the box office like- Wake Up Sid, Bachna Ae Haseeno, Rocket Singh . His last release Rockstar was a big release which earned him the best actor in all awards functions but is not considered a commercially successful film. If you see, Ranbir Kapoor’s Filmography it doesnt have big hits like the Khans but Ranbir, has earned big league star status with fetching high fee which is quoted around 18 crores. He is also considered one of the top-most actors in Bollywood in the new generation of actors.
His upcoming release Barfi! is with Priyanka Chopra. His last movie with her Anjaani Anjaani had bombed badly at the box office. Barfi! also looks like movie made for Mutiplex rather than Single screen. Looking the star cast and directed by Anurag Basu movie looks promising. Ranbir plays the title character of ‘Barfi!’ who is deaf and mute. Priyanka Chopra plays the role of an autistic girl and Ileana D’cruz is shown as the narrator of the film. Going by predictions and audiences responses to the trailers and songs, it seems that Barfi! is going to a be blockbuster. It is expected to rake in a good business at the box office. His last film Rockstar made approx 65 crores at the box office but was not a commercial success.
What do you think? Will Barfi! be big enough to debut Ranbir Kapoor to the Rs 100 crore club?
