Ranbir Kapoor is being tipped by producers as being the hottest likely star for 2010. The likeable young man is said to have been offered a 50cr contract by UTV. “UTV is very happy with the way Ranbir’s Wake Up Sid fared at the box office,” said a source, “His forthcoming movie Rajneeti is also with UTV and the producers have taken a liking to this young actor whom they dub as the Next Big Thing in Bollywood. So they have offered him a three-film deal worth Rs50 crore which he has apparently signed.”
Ranbir is currently filming in the US with co-star Priyanka Chopra for Anjaana Anjaani, which seems destined to be another hit romantic comedy. There is quite a long filming schedule ahead for the stars in New York.
Now officially single, Ranbir had a strange experience recently when out dining with Imran Khan. At this point, he still hadn’t shaved off his Rocket Singh beard. A precocious young woman came into the restaurant and recognising Imran immediately rushed over to his table, demanding that Ranbir, whom she didn’t recognise, take photos of her with Imran. She then returned to her table, not giving a moment‘s thought to the bearded one she‘d left behind. When her friend pointed out that the bearded guy was in fact Ranbir Kapoor, she then rushed back to the table apologising profusely and then demanded that Imran take photos of her with Ranbir. The two stars said they laughed about it afterwards.
