Ranbir Kapoor’s choice of scripts is stupid: Vidhu Vinod Chopra

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra has said that Ranbir Kapoor’s choice of scripts has largely been unimpressive. Both have collaborated for the first time on actor Sanjay Dutt’s biopic Sanju.

At the teaser launch of the much-anticipated film, the producer spoke candidly about his leading actor. “When I asked them who would play Sanjay Dutt, they showed me Ranbir’s tests and honestly, I couldn’t believe it was Ranbir and I know Sanju. Personally and I am sure through this film, you all will discover that Ranbir is one of the best actors in the country. He is probably the best actor in the country. And I am not one of the guys who would say that. When I say this, I also say that his choice of scripts is very stupid. So, you can imagine I am saying the truth.”

“What he has done in the film is unbelievable and so is what Rajkummar Hirani and Abhijaat Joshi have done with him,” Vidhu Vinod Chopra told reporters.

When asked about Vidhu’s comment on his choice of films, Ranbir Kapoor said, “If every actor had a plan of what he or she is doing, everyone would have been a superstar. I have made a lot of mistakes but I keep reminding myself, it’s just a bent, not the end. Life is tough, you have to work really hard, like the title of his (Hirani) film says, ‘Lage Raho’.”

Sanju arrives in theatres on June 29.

      The event movie for this year 2018

      This friday we are going to see the first hollywood event movie in india . The one and only infinity war

      Than the next event movie is going to be the unstoppable race 3

      Than comes the all conquering thugs , this one will be massive

      And now it seems sanju is going to be a event movie.the teaser trailer already got more veiws than zero within day one. I always thought bollywood had two megastar aamir and sallu but it seem there is another one , his name is raju hirani. Sanju is going to be epic not just in india i think in most places. Raju will be the next global star after aamir.

  2. Ranbir has defeated Salman many times in last decade in opening .lets have a look
    2007- Saawariya > Marigold
    2008- BAS > GTGH
    BAS > Yuvraj
    2009- APKGK > Wanted
    APKGK> MAMK
    APKGK > London dreams
    Wake up sid > MAMK
    Rocket singh > MAMK
    Its 8 times ,excluding cameos like Hello and Heroes .
    Newcomer RK defeated Salman 8 times in just 3 years .

    • Sharam ani chahye tum ko is vinod chopra be Kaha tha Jo amir friend h keh dalgal story ki waja se hit hui h na keep amir ki waja se tum q bhool jate ho amir sirf story wali film ko hit ka rwa sakta h srk ki acting amir we good h

      • Same thing applies to lallu. BB worked because of content not because of salman. Without content Salman is flop actor.

  3. Sanju teaser max-145 crores. Hirani should have opted for Salman instead of ranbir, who is flop actor.
    Hirani with these film never ever breaks records for sure. It’s Average trailer with flop actor.

  4. @ honest man, SRK with Subhas ghai- Pardes in 1997 – 23 crore – Superhit
    Salman with Same Subhas ghai – Yuvraaj in 2008 – 17 crore – disaster

  5. For baba’s biopic RK not did any mistake ”sanju” will take him higher and higher from his record !!

    Rajkumar Santoshi:
    Salman Khan-Flop Andaaz apna apna(Multistarrer),

      Let the trash begin keep dreaming you moron fool. Trash 3 will be garbage movie with all shitty actors except anil and director is weak and 2nd part was a big let down so 3rd will be biggest crap since saif is not in it and replaced by boring non actor Salman so race 3 will surely flop. Raj Kumar hirani is father of Salman and he will rip him apart despite not releasing on eid festival and you will cry hard. Raju is much bigger than Salman and sanju will thrash trash 3. Keep dreaming you fool.

    Avengers may beat the advance of tiger zinda hai, sultan etc. Hindi audience has backstabbed once more after Bahubali. If it really happens, then the top2 advances will be non Hindi films, hope it doesn’t happen. But I think boxofficeindia will not include avengers in their dates because the record will not be done only by Hindi version, bahubali’s records were created by it’s Hindi version.

  11. hit like if you think sanju is going to earn more collections than race3 this june I really think that because many are exacted to watch sanjay dutt Biography and I one of them also the teaser have huge responses on youtube plus the directer Rajkummar Hirani have blockbuster track record at the box office and if sanju turn out to be good as his previous films then with+20cr opening it will do +300cr in it is lifetime which I don’t think that race3 will do it

  13. some flop king ka fan ranbir ko bap banaliya bhai ko haraneke liya,, shame

  14. flop king ka last three movies fan 80cr+ raees 138cr+ jhms 62 total 280cr ha ha,,,,
    or oska fan zero ki 300cr ki baat kornee laga,,, what a joking!!!

  15. Ranbir is a fine actor no doubt about it but again it’s the choice of a script that may take you to the top or to the bottom. A couple of years back stardom factor was a little more stronger and a little less impressive script could be a success but not any more. Even superstars like Salman Srk could give major flops with a bad script. Audience has become very much aware of everything that goes around when a movie is released like what are the -ve or +ve of a certain movie. Hope Ranvir and every other actor at least try to avoid senseless script if they can’t find a gud script.

  16. Avengers infinity war advance has surpassed the booking record of every Hindi movie and is only behind Baahubali the conclusion. A high advance was expected but this sort of advanced has taken it to a whole new level. The top 2 advance bookings are non Hindi films. Bollywood really needs to take it’s standard higher than what it is right now. We need more Gud scripts, writers and technologies. We’ve gud actors No doubt, all we need is new ideas more engaging scripts. We should start working on movies with universal appeal. It might be risky at first but today’s generation would really dig it.
