Ranbir Kapoor made his debut with the 2007 release Saawariya. Though the film failed to make a mark at the box office, Ranbir’s performance was appreciated a lot.

In these 13 years, the actor has starred in many films and proved his mettle as an actor as well as a bankable star.

Today, Ranbir celebrates his 38th birthday, so let’s look at the list of top five performances of the actor…

Wake Up Sid

In 2009, Ranbir Kapoor starred in Dharma Productions’ Wake Up Sid which was directed by Ayan Mukerji. The movie was Ranbir’s first commercial hit and the actor surely gave a wonderful performance in it. The film was about a young guy who comes to know about his strength when he starts staying away from his family.


Ranbir Kapoor’s character Jordan from the film Rockstar is one of the most loved characters the actor has played on the big screen. Directed by Imtiaz Ali, the movie was about a singer who is at the peak of his career, but his failed love life becomes a hurdle for him. The actor won Filmfare Award for Best Actor as well as Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor.


One of the toughest roles Ranbir Kapoor has played on the big screen is of Barfi. The movie was directed by Anurag Basu and it told the story of a deaf and mute guy named Barfi. Ranbir was simply excellent in the film and won the Filmfare Best Actor Award for his performance in it.


After Rockstar, Ranbir Kapoor once again collaborated with Imtiaz Ali for the film Tamasha. Ali is known for writing complex characters and Ranbir’s character Ved in Tamasha was not an exception. The actor surely gave a fantastic performance in the movie and it is undoubtedly one of the most underrated performances of Ranbir.


Last we have Sanju on the list. Playing a real-life character that too who is alive is surely not an easy task, but Ranbir played the role of Sanjay Dutt on the big screen amazingly. Ranbir went deep into the skin of the character and once again impressed everyone with his performance. He won Filmfare Award for Best Actor for his performance in the movie.
