Ranbir Kapoor Plays A Salesman In Movie ‘Rocket Singh’
Ranbir Kapoor will be seen in the role of a Sikh salesman in his new flick ‘Rocket Singh’. The young Kapoor who has given two recent hits "Wake Up Sid" and "Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani" is currently awaiting release of "Rocket Singh - Salesman of the Year" scheduled on Friday.
The film has been directed by Shimit Amin and written by Jaideep Sahni. The film has been produced under the Yash Raj banner. "Rocket Singh” also introduces Shazahn Padamsee, daughter of ad man Alyque Padamsee and singer Sharon Prabhakar. Gauhar Khan and Sharon will be seen playing major roles in the flick.
Ranbir had said,"`Rocket Singh` is not only my greatest film, but it is also one of the greatest films of recent times. It is unlike what people have seen before; the sensibilities are unique. I am sure it will get the recognition it deserves.”
The story revolves around a salesman Harpreet Singh Bedi (Ranbir) who has just graduated with embarrassing marks. But that doesn`t stop him from dreaming of an exciting and adventurous career. He dives into the world of sales - believed to be an ultra cool career for all those who cannot make it to medical, engineering or business schools.
Harpreet wants the same career as it involves smooth dressing, smoother talking men and women who can sell ice to an Eskimo, dreams to an insomniac, and a lifetime mobile connection to a dying man. But soon, his idea of success begins clashing with the strange ways of the professionals and bosses he always looked up to.
The story takes a turn when he discreetly becomes a conman and starts operating a parallel company within the same firm he works in. Considering Amin, Sahni and YRFs` past record of critically-acclaimed hit "Chak De! India" and the buzz around "Rocket Singh", it is being touted to be a sure shot winner at the box office.
Ranbir who is ready to experiment with different roles says, “I love trying out new roles, and I am very grateful for all the different roles I have got. One needs to be convincing, no matter what he is doing, and work hard. You leave the rest to god. I choose my movies and roles according to my 26 years, and when I am 40, my choices will change.”
