Compared to his predecessors, the Khans in Bollywood, Ranbir Kapoor stood out not only because of his Kapoor genes but also stood tall thanks to them (his genes)!
While Aamir, Salman and Shah Rukh Khan fall short of the coveted 6”, Ranbir is easily the tallest as his lanky frame just touches six feet. But is Ranbir’s height really an advantage to him? Looking at his long-legged colleagues like Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, the answer is definitely a yes.
With co-stars like Rani Mukerji, Kajol and Preity Zinta, Aamir Khan probably didn’t have to worry about rising up to the occasion, but there was a certain awkwardness in Sarfarosh with Sonali Bendre who easily towered above him. Even Salman Khan managed to pull it off with romancing his taller romantic interests like Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra and others, as did Shah Rukh Khan.
Ranbir, however, doesn’t have to stoop to peck a kiss on his beautiful co-stars thanks to his 6” frame. RK was just a few inches taller than his Saawariya co-star Sonam Kapoor, and the chemistry between them was adorable even as he bent to look into her shy eyes.
It was his Bachna Ae Haseeno love interest – and real life girlfriend then – Deepika Padukone who stood almost shoulder-to-shoulder with the Kapoor man. Even Bipasha Basu came close.
Do you think Ranbir Kapoor’s height gives him an advantage other stars?
