As they say 2 Actors can have too many similarities but sometime its baffling to see how things can go for the said 2 actors, while one with a Successfull Debut can become a Flopstar while Another one with a Horrible Debut can end up being a Successfull star with huge popularity.
I would be having this series of posts describing the Curious case of Two Actors having many similarities but somewhat different path and Result.
Both Shahid and Ranbir apart from having same Sirname(though not Related) have quite other similarities like Well acclaimed Actors as their FATHERS ,Pankaj kapoor and Rishi kapoor respectively.
Both having a Dream launch pad —Shahid with Ken Gosh’s Ishq Vishk in 2003 and Ranbir with Sanjay leela bhansali’s Saawariya in 2007.
Ishk Vishk turned out to be SUCCESSFULL while Saawariya became a Flop.But then came one Surprises after another where all the Predictions and chants of Shahid being the next Big Star converted in Ranbir is a BIG STAR.
Lets see how the Chants really Changed and Why–
Shahid was not able to repeat his Ishk vishk Success until 2005(2 years after his debut ) with Deewane Huye Paagal Somewhat but gave 5-6 flops after that until the BLOCKBUSTER VIVAH and Jab we met to some extent retrieved some hope on Shahid but then after this 2007 movie he has starred in around 9 movies in 6 years and has not been able to give a Single Hit or Semi-Hit.
while he Started giving Flops one after another the Emergence of Ranbir kapoor began to show….
Though Ranbir’s 2nd movie Bachna ae haseeno was only an Average Grosser…his Break out movie was his 4 th movie Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani which was Super-hit…then after that he has never looked back and has consolidated his position as an Force to reckon with at the Box-office with BLOCKBUSTER like RAAJNEETI ,Semi-Hit RockStar and an 100 cr Grosser Hit Barfi(the youngest Actor to do so).
with Both Shahid and Ranbir being in the same age group of 31-32 years old it would be interesting to see if Shahid can give his 1st hit in 6 years and Start his journey to become a Audience Pulling power at Boxoffice while it would be nice to see for how long and how bigger hits he can deliver.!!
