Ranbir Kapoor Is The Next Big B?
Siddharth Anand, the director of ‘Anjaana Anjaani’ says that actor Ranbir Kapoor has the potential to be called as the next Amitabh Bachchan. He thinks that the day he does an action film, he is sure to create a buzz like Big B.
Ranbir has worked with the director in ‘Bachna Ae Haseno’ in the year 2008 and this time he is working with him in the movie ‘Anjaana-Anjaani’, Priyanka Chopra stars opposite to him.
Anand adds further, “Ranbir is the perfect guy to play Anthony (a character played by Big B in Amar Akbar Anthony), he can play coolie, and he can play the characters Bachchan played in his prime. There is no one else but him.”
He continues, "The day Ranbir does an action film and does it well, he has the potential to fill the void that Bachchan created.”
He also appreciates Ranbir’s willingness to do challenging scenes in the movie ‘Anjaana-Anjaani’, he says that he did a daring water diving scene, even being a aqua phobic.
He adds, "In Anjaana Anjaani there is a sequence where they are stranded in the middle of an ocean. It was the Pacific Ocean and he had to dive into the freezing waters. He did it even though he has aqua phobia.”
He finishes and says he expects a lot from the movie and is even planning to make an action film with Ranbir Kapoor, as he loves to work with him.
