Sanju Will Be The Turning Point Of Ranbir's Career
Speaking of why Ranbir desperately needs a blockbuster in his kitty, trade analyst Akshaye Rathi told an entertainment portal, "Not just this film but the journey from this point onwards will be a game-changer for Ranbir Kapoor.
The kind of choices that he has made after this film, whether its Shamshera or Brahmastra, we are looking at a brand new Ranbir Kapoor who is thinking mainstream commercial cinema."
Ranbir Needs To Prove His Stardom
"Over the last 10 years, Ranbir was, kind of, proving to the world that he is a great actor. I don't think he needs to do that. He has proven that he is a phenomenal actor, one of the best in this country as of today. Now it's time for him to prove his stardom not acting chops."
We Do Agree With Mr Rathi!
"And I think with the kind of mainstream commercial films he is beginning to choose now, he is going to show the world what a star he is. Going by his choices, I bet he is going to be among the biggest stars this country has ever seen," added Mr Rathi.
