Ranbir Kapoor, who is considered one of the finest actors working in Bollywood, is celebrating his birthday today. On the occasion of his 41st birthday, the makers of his next Animal launched the trailer of the film which has received a thunderous response from the audience. As the actor turns a year old today, let’s take a look at top 5 best-rated films of Ranbir Kapoor on IMDb.

1. Barfi – 8.1

The Anurag Basu directorial revolves around a hearing-impaired boy Barfi (Ranbir Kapoor) who falls in love with Shruti (Ileana D’Cruz). However, Shruti marries someone else and later discovers that Barfi is now in love with an autistic girl called Jhilmil (Priyanka Chopra). Both Kapoor and Chopra deliver outstanding performances in this romantic comedy-drama, which boasts an 8.1 rating on IMDb.

2. Rockstar – 7.7

Ranbir Kapoor plays an inspiring singer Janardan in this Imtiaz Ali directorial who is advised to get his heart broken in love in order to bring emotions to his songs and poetry. He eventually falls in love with Heer. What happens next forms the crux of the story. Kapoor delivers one of his career-best performances in this film. AR Rahman’s music and Irshad Kamil’s lyrics bring forth the melancholy of love like never before. Rockstar enjoys a rating of 7.7 on IMDb.

3. Sanju – 7.6

Sanju, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, is undoubtedly one of the most challenging projects in Ranbir Kapoor’s filmography where he delivers his most ambitious acting performance to date. The film is a biography of Bollywood’s controversial superstar Sanjay Dutt and Kapoor plays his part to the tee. In order to play various phases of Dutt’s life convincingly, Kapoor undergoes several massive transformations. The film set the box office on fire upon its release in 2018 and has a rating of 7.6 on IMDb.

4. Wake Up Sid – 7.6

The coming-of-age film Wake Up Sid stars Ranbir Kapoor as a college student Sid Mehra. After failing his graduation, Sid moves out of his parents’ house and discovers a new life with help from roommate Aisha (Konkona Sen Sharma). This Ayan Mukerji directorial changed the direction of Kapoor’s career. The actor was mostly seen in romantic comedies before, but the audience and critics saw a new side to his acting range in Wake Up Sid.

5. Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year – 7.5

A Yash Raj Films’ offering, Rocket Singh sees Ranbir Kapoor as Harpreet who ends up choosing a job in sales because of his poor marks in graduation. One day, he takes the risk of launching his own business from the premises of the same office where he works. Kapoor delivers an extremely restrained performance in this Shimit Amin directorial. The film has a rating of 7.5 on IMDb.
