Ranbir Kapoor Birthday Special: 5 filmmakers we want the terrific actor to collaborate with

There are very few actors in Bollywood who can catch the audience’s attention and imagination the way Ranbir Kapoor does. He is hands down one of the most talented actors we have in Bollywood right now. Over the years, Ranbir has proved his acting mettle by delivering hits like ‘Rockstar’, ‘Tamasha’, ‘Barfi’, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani‘ and several others which were loved by the audience and the critics alike.

Amidst the several debates surrounding Bollywood, Ranbir has proved that he not just a product of nepotism. With his hard work and sheer dedication towards his characters, Ranbir has earned the fame and praise that he has been showered with.

From Angry young man, confused lover, coming-of-age characters, Ranbir has done it all. And mind you, he has never taken his stardom for granted and that shows in the kind of projects he is signing one after another. With each of his roles, he has only pushed the envelope further. And with each of his projects, Ranbir sets a benchmark which he surpasses with his very next film. The hunger to play roles that will redefine the ‘Hero’ tag is seen in Ranbir’s eyes and that sets him apart from his peers.

While Ranbir has teamed up with some of the best directors like Anurag Basu, Imtiaz Ali, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Anurag Kashyap to name a few, following are the 5 filmmakers we want our birthday boy to collaborate with. Take a look.

Vishal Bhardwaj

Imagine watching Ranbir in a cinematic adaptation of William Shakespeare’s plays. And only Vishal Bhardwaj can make that dream come true. The director can bring out the untapped potential of Ranbir. Both Bhardwaj and Ranbir are passionate about making meaningful films, so when two like-minded people come together the result is always beyond expectation.

Meghna Gulzar

Meghna Gulzar is my personal favourite and one of the most sensitive directors we have in Bollywood. Her films not just have a social message, they literally have souls who speak to you directly. Just like her gifted father Gulzar, Meghna doesn’t make films for viewers, she makes them only when she actually has a story to tell. Her films are a treat to watch and we just can’t imagine how great her collaboration with Ranbir will turn out to be. Also, it would be a treat to watch Ranbir work with a female filmmaker. Let’s hope it happens very soon.

Farhan Akhtar

Multi-talented Farhan has given us gems like ‘Dil Chahta Hai’, ‘Lakshya’ and ‘Don 2’ to name a few. Now imagine Ranbir playing the lead in one such films. Wouldn’t that be exciting? We hope Farhan finds a script soon which is worthy enough to bring Ranbir on board. I am sure, both of them can come up with a kickass film.

Shoojit Sircar

Shoojit Sircar’s slice-of-life films have a special charm of its own. His cinematic universe is different from the commercial films that we have seen Ranbir starring in so far. It would be a pleasure to watch Ranbir attempt something like ‘Yahaan’, ‘Vicky Donor’, ‘Piku’, ‘October’ or ‘Gulabo Sitabo’. We would really love to see Shoojit direct Ranbir someday. Let’s hope it happens in the nearest future.

Zoya Akhtar

Zoya is yet another gifted director who knows how to entertain as well as enlight the audience with her films. From ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’, ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ to ‘Gully Boy’, she has always chosen a beautiful story to tell. Hope someday her stories will also feature Ranbir because then it would be ‘sone pe suhaaga’. 

We last saw Ranbir in ‘Sanju’ that released in 2018 and his next film ‘Brahmastra’ will most probably hit the screens in 2021. It’s been really a long wait for his fans. We hope in the coming years, Ranbir signs more films and collaborate with the above-mentioned filmmakers.

We wish our Rockstar Ranbir Kapoor a very Happy Birthday and a rocking year ahead.
