Ranbir Kapoor on Aap Ki Adalat in 2011

Back in 2011, Ranbir Kapoor appeared on the popular talk show, Aap Ki Adalat hosted by Rajat Sharma. Ranbir was present on the show before the release of his superhit film Rockstar, helmed by Imtiaz Ali. During the grilling rounds, the Jagga Jasoos actor made many interesting confessions on the show. Today, the flamboyant actor celebrates his 35th birthday,  that is on 28th September. On the occasion of him turning 35, let’s have a brief throwback to Ranbir Kapoor’s witty answers in Aap Ki Adalat. 

Answering to one of the questions, Ranbir Kapoor expressed how he was typecasted as the ‘Chocolate Boy’ of Bollywood, which he hated to the core. When his movie Saawariya came out, there’s no doubt that Ranbir was hailed as a ‘cute actor’ of present-day Indian cinema. He never understood the concept of being a chocolate boy, citing that he never tasted like a chocolate or looked like one. He was desperate to break the glass ceiling and do something outside his comfort zone. That’s how ended up signing Rockstar, the film which reshaped his journey in Bollywood. Ranbir also played an off-beat character in Anurag Basu's Jagga Jasoos, which released earlier this year.

Rockstar was a musical-drama directed by popular filmmaker Imtiaz Ali. The film mustered popularity for being unusual and out of the box. Ranbir Kapoor played the role of a struggling musician Janardhan, who transforms into Jordan in due course of his success. The film was hailed by all the critics around the country and is said to be one of the stellar performances of both Ranbir Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali. 

On the work front, Ranbir Kapoor will be making an astonishing appearance playing the popular actor Sanjay Dutt in latter’s biopic.
