Ranbir's career started booming from his 3rd film named "Wake Up Sid" which was both commercially as well as critically successful. Wake Up Sid made Ranbir Kapoor won many awards as a lead Actor that year. Later he couple of flops and hits was added to his career.Flops were Rocket Singh and Anjana Anjaani while Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani and Rajneeti
were among big hits.
Rockstar and Barfi made audience realize that Ranbir has been added to the big stars list like the Khan's and others. Rockstar wasn't much appreciable but Ranbir Kapoor's performance was so good. This made us realize he can make films work on box office just because of him in it. After Rockstar Ranbir worked on joyful, enjoyable and fresh movie named "Barfi". Film has crosses 100 crore mark, he was one of the young stars to touch 100 crore easily.
His second last film "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" has made 200 crore globally in a very short period of time . film cannot be appreciated much as per the critical reception is concerned. Yet it was enjoyable film in many ways. Besharam is the recent film of him by which his stardom is letting down. Besharam's collections came down drastically from second day itself.
At this point of time in his career; Ranbir wasn't expected to do even a single film like this. What is being expected from him is to work on youth centered topics based film films along with somewhat moving plot.This works for the films to be a hit in a phenomenal way.
