Wake Up Sid
Even after portraying an arrogant rich brat, this 2009 film showcased Ranbir’s sensitive side, while he finds his own feet and deals with adulting. Courtesy of this masterpiece, Ayan Mukerji discovered Ranbir, a diamond in the rough, and went on to make two more blockbuster movies with him, including their latest release Brahmastra, which continues to stand rock solid at the box office.
Considered Ranbir’s one of the most intense performances to date, Rockstar was claimed to be far from perfect by many critics. And honestly, we believe that it was Ranbir’s strong conviction, amalgamated with music maestro AR Rahman’s soundtrack, that lifted the movie to whole another level.
Anurag Basu’s directorial is one of the most wholesome and warm movies that Ranbir has ever been part of. Despite allegations of plagiarism, the 2012 film continues to shine and that is only because of its leading man. Playing a deaf-mute man, Ranbir honestly made Barfi an extraordinary movie.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
Once again the collaboration of Ranbir and Ayan made magic at the box office and ruled the hearts of the movie buffs, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani has its special place among Bollywood lovers.
Yet again Imtiaz Ali sent the audience into a frenzy by collaborating with Ranbir. Gaining cult status over the years, Tamasha is considered to be a fine piece of work by the fans of the actor and director duo.
After a brief lull, RK bounced back with a blockbuster in 2018. Giving a career-defining performance in Raj Kumar Hirani’s Sanju, Ranbir honestly did a splendid job in exhibiting the life of the troubled star. From his physical transformation to getting the mannerisms of Sanjay Dutt right, the role truly seems tailor-made for Ranbir.
“According to the facts … the nature, circumstances and harmful consequences of the crime, the court made the above judgment," the court said in an online statement.
The actor was critical for the last few days and undergoing treatment in Pune. His daughter refuted rumours of his demise recently in a statement.
