Born with a silver spoon, in every sense of the word Ranbir Kapoor is referred to as a mainstream Bollywood hero. A member of the privileged Kapoor khandan, the actor was always saddled with good looks, an industry network and a name which draws producers like a magnet.


The actor, in the last 11 years of his career has had his great highs as well as abysmal lows, but has also proved time and again why he is best to carry forward the Kapoor legacy. So here are 5 times when Ranbir Kapoor proved that he is to stay!


Barfi - All our inhibitions about Ranbir Kapoor being an actor vanished when we saw him in Anurag Basu's Barfi! Playing the titular role of a deaf and mute boy, Ranbir played a role that even actors of great caliber can fail to do. A simple shift could have ruined the essence of the whole character but he played it exceptionally well, keeping all the emotions and mannerism intact and gave one of his most appreciated performance.


Rocket Singh - The movie came at the time of 2009 financial crises and told a story of a salesman Rocket Singh who sets up his own company based on friendship, faith and the dictum that customer is a god. Shorn of spectacle and beautifully understated, the film captured the middle-class life in India, warts and all. Though being unappreciated by the audience, Ranbir gave a powerful performance which established the boy as the actor!


Rockstar - His first collaboration with director Imtiaz Ali, Rockstar turned out to be a gamechanger for Ranbir's career and gave us one his finest performance. Throughout the film, the viewer couldn't see Ranbir Kapoor as an actor but as the tortured musician Jordon. The intensity, the rage, the heartbreak, and his dream, Kapoor showed it all, exploiting his full potential.


Tamasha - Ranbir Kapoor's second movie with Imtiaz Ali received mixed reviews from the audience, but Ranbir gave a performance worth noticing. He explored an untapped territory as an actor and brought some so many different emotions with utmost sincerity. It is not possible to get the nuances of the film the first time you see it. But, the more attention you pay to Kapoor's character, one can see how relatable the story actually is.


Sanju - It is never easy to play a living person in a biography, especially when the life of that person has been scrutinized over and over again in public. But Ranbir took the insurmountable challenge and passes with flying colors in Rajkumar Hirani's Sanju. The actor did complete justice to the role of Sanjay Dutt that while watching the movie you forget that its actually Ranbir and not Sanjay Dutt proving once again that he can effectively and completely slide into his character!
