Let us take a look at 5 of the best Ranbir Kapoor films which prove his versatility as an actor.
Wake up Sid (2009)
This movie came in Ranbir’s life when his career had just started. His previous two films were average and still didn’t unlock his full potential as an actor. It was directed by Ayan Mukerji and starred Konkona Sen Sharma as the female protagonist. Ranbir’s portrayal of a spoilt brat to a responsible person who finds his true passion in life was something everyone related to.
Prakash Jha directed this film. Raajneeti was a multi-starrer movie with Ranbir Kapoor in the lead. This role was a complete U-turn from the charming roles the actor has been playing. He donned the avatar of a cunning-vicious politician, who can do just about anything. It was powerful acting by Ranbir.
Who can forget this film? Jordan of Rockstar put Ranbir Kapoor beside the A-listers of the industry. Directed by Imtiaz Ali, this became one of the most acclaimed films of his career. He won the Best Actor Filmfare award for this.
Playing the role of a deaf and mute person, Murphy or Barfi! was as adorable as he can be. The simple, subtle and joyful acting by Kapoor was loved by all. Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D'Cruz also starred in this film. The movie was directed by Anurag Basu.
His portrayal of Sanjay Dutt in this Raju Hirani directed was so apt that after some time you will forget it is not Sanju baba playing himself on screen. The body, the voice, the walk, and just about everything were exactly on point.
