Bollywood's latest sensation Ranbir Kapoor is still stuck in college. Just on the heels of playing a lazy and unmotivated guy in Wake Up Sid, he plays a dull guy in Rocket Singh – Salesman of the Year. And his roles in these films are similar, as his life starts changing only after getting out of college.
Rocket Singh tells the story of Harpreet Singh Bedi (Ranbir Kapoor), who goes in search of his dream in spite of scoring poorly in the exams. He cannot get white-collar jobs due to his poor academic background and so he turns salesman. The very idea of dressing smart and convincing the people with smooth talks attracted him into the profession. Will he be successful in the profession? The rest of the story tells just that!
All eyes will be on Ranbir Kapoor. He must be feeling the pressure at the moment, as he is expected to put up a good show after the success of Wake Up Sid. He seems to be on the right path as far as his film career is concerned but his love life has been laid low following the alleged split from his long-time girlfriend Deepika Padukone. He badly needs the success of Rocket Singh to heal the wounds of the break-up.
Interestingly, the makers of the film roped in newcomers Shehnaz Padamsee and Gauhar Khan to act with Ranbir. It was a big risk because Ranbir too is just a few films old. Even before the release of the film, Shehnaz and Gauhar have started claiming bigger screen space in the film. You don't know if these babes will do justice to their roles.
One of the highlights of Rocket Singh will be the alleged kissing scene between Ranbir and Shehnaz. It will be Ranbir's first mouth-to-mouth onscreen kiss if Shehnaz's claim is to be believed.
Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year is produced by Aditya Chopra under Yash Raj Films banner and directed by Shimit Amin. It is releasing tomorrow, December 11.
