Jr Kapoor’s latest outing hasn’t fared well at the box office. In fact, Bombay Velvet is being said to the biggest dud of all time but Ranbir shouldn’t worry at all. Here’s why…
Ranbir Kapoor had pinned all his hopes on Anurag Kashyap’s directorial venture Bombay Velvetwhich finally released last Friday after much delay. While the big budget film courted a lot of negative buzz since the very beginning, there were quite a few elements which made Bombay Velvet one of the highly anticipated film. Not only Anurag got Ranbir and Anushka Sharma together for the very first time, the Ugly director also managed to rope in fellow filmmaker Karan Johar for his ambitious period drama. While RK and Ms Sharma’s chemistry was something that got everyone excited, on the other hand, Johar’s baddie avatar took the curiosity level a notch up amongst the masses. However, when Bombay Velvet released on May 15, nothing worked in the favour of the film. And BV ended up raking in only Rs 16.10 crore over the first weekend. In fact, we told you exclusively yesterday that Anurag’s latest offering has amounted a loss of Rs 90 crore approximately which is indeed a huge figure. While BV has clearly failed to pack a solid punch at the BO, here’s why Ranbir should be least affected by its failure…
Big banner films lined-up
So what if Bombay Velvet failed to get cash registers jingling? Jr Kapoor won’t take long to bounce back. One hit under his belt and RK will be back in the race. And that one crucial hit is just around the corner. Ranbir’s next release is Tamasha co-starring his ex-flame Deepika Padukone. This Imtiaz Ali directorial has already created immense buzz and is being eagerly awaited. Then Rishi Kapoor’s ladla beta will be seen in Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos alongside his ladylove Katrina Kaif. Ranbir also has Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanjay Dutt biopic. Not to forget, RK has also signed Ayan Mukerji’s superhero flick which will feature Alia Bhatt too. With such interesting films on his plate, Katrina’s beau surely has a lot to look forward too.
Form is temporary, talent is permanent!
Every actor in his career is bound to deliver a flop. Every actor is bound to go through a rough patch and Ranbir is no exception to that. After all, life is not always roses, right. Be it Shah Rukh, Salman or Aamir Khan, all of them have biggest of the flops to their name. But that doesn’t take away the fact that they all can act. Well, the same goes for RK. He is the same guy who played the deaf-mute character in Barfi! and the very lovable Prem in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. In Wake Up Sid, he charmed us with his innocence and he got cash registers jingling with Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. So it won’t be long before Ranbir gains his form back. After all, a flop can only change your box office status not your talent. That’s permanent!
Huge fan following
Unlike his contemporaries, Ranbir is neither on social media nor is he spotted often at events. At one hand, while most actors are going all out to make their presence felt on social platforms, the Kapoor lad on the other hand believes in letting his work do all the talking. And that’s one reason why his fan following has been growing bigger with each passing day. So till RK doesn’t give up acting, his fans are going to continue watching his films because that’s how they stay connected to their favourite star.
