Can Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan match the greatness of Holy trinity of Khans?
Bollywood is constantly evolving and getting on with the times. From storytelling to sets to technology to music to action sequences, everything is changing for the better and invention is becoming the name of the game. But, one thing over the last 30 years or so has remained constant and that is the ever growing and legendary presence of three Khans i.e. Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, and Salman Khan. The three Khans are real greats of Bollywood and I don’t want to cheapen the value of the word ‘great’, but these three stars deserve it 100%.

Can anyone fill their big boots (not that they are showing signs of slowing down) and carry forward their legacy? Let’s look at some names for a moment – Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Ayushmann Khurrana, Vicky Kaushal, Rajkummar Rao, Ranveer Singh, Tiger Shroff, Shahid Kapoor. For me, straightaway three names that come to my mind are that of Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Ranveer Singh. These three stars have made a niche for themselves in the industry through their charisma and hard work.
Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, and Varun Dhawan made their debuts in 2007, 2010 and 2012 respectively. Ranbir is currently being rated as one of the best, if not the best because of his acting, composure and immaculate passion for his craft. This is the same Ranbir, who had gone six years without a hit and plenty of people had written him off. But, he proved his class and temperament with Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘Sanju’ in 2018. For all the mediocre films he has given, there are films like ‘Rockstar’, ‘Barfi’, ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’, ‘Tamasha’ and ‘Rocket Singh’. Ranbir oozes class and his acting is nonchalantly perfect and magnificently outstanding.
When Ranveer Singh made his debut in Bollywood, not many people took him seriously and thought he is just a wannabe and an average actor. But, Ranveer stayed true to himself and in the last 15 months, he has given three genuine blockbusters in ‘Padmaavat’, ‘Simmba’ and ‘Gully Boy’. Ranveer is full of energy and daredevilry and doesn’t possess class like Ranbir, but he gives it all for his projects and never shies from hard work. Ranveer Singh is in your face and doesn’t care about perceptions and stereotypes and his only strategy is to not have any strategy.
Varun Dhawan is about to complete seven years in the industry and is not being talked about as much as he should have. The so-called film critics labeled him as the amalgamation of Govinda and Salman Khan. But, Varun’s record at the box-office is 100% flop free (that record is in serious jeopardy with the failure of ‘Kalank’) and he likes to keep things in perspective. Varun is a free spirit and is an out and out massy hero. The son of director David Dhawan proved that he is not a one trick pony with films like ‘Sui Dhaaga’ and ‘October’ in 2018. And at the end of that, only success and success matters and Varun has that in abundance.
I know, it is a very bold move to take the names of Ranveer, Ranbir and Varun in the same bracket as SRK, Salman and Aamir. But, the holy trinity of Khans was not made in a day and they also had to start somewhere. The three talented actors in Ranbir, Ranveer, and Varun have an abundance of potential and they all are genuine superstars in their own right. And remember one thing, records are meant to be broken.
When Sachin Tendulkar retired with 100 international hundreds, nobody would have thought that anybody can even come close to his record. But, Indian captain Virat Kohli already has 66 international hundreds and is only 30 years of age and at the peak of his powers.
The three Khans have been the biggest stars over the last three decades and the likes of Ranbir, Ranveer and Varun have it in them to reach those highs.
