Mumbai: Back in 90’s Rishi Kapoor was appreciated for his chocolate boy looks, style and acting caliber, but unfortunately he never got elevated to the superstar status. But, looks like his actor son Ranbir will compensate for all that and more.

Even though Ranbir’s debut film, Saawariya bit the dust at the box office, everyone knows that this boy has a special spark. But no one perhaps ever imagined that he would grow at this kind of speed and achieve the stature he is at present in the industry.

His latest flick Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani (YJHD) is just his 10th film of his five year long career. According to the buzz high bucks are being offered to pick up the rights of the film. Though Saawariya bombed, over the past five years and nine films old he has slowly and steadily gained the confidence of the audience.

Sources inform us that his next film YJHD is already being picked up at a record high amount, and in a circuit like Co-Production, which contributes around five percent of all-India collection has paid a staggering 3.15 crore as minimum guarantee for the film. A source informs, “The last film that was picked up in this circuit was at least a crore less then YJHD, such amount of price is unheard of.”

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh says, “With due respect to other actors, the kind of charisma and charm Ranbir possess no one else does. The breath in which we take names of Shah Rukh, Aamir and Salman, we should now add Ranbir’s name -- just that he is from the current generation. He is loved by people from the age of six to 60, masses love him and classes love him.

Also don’t be surprised that Yeh Jaawani would take the biggest opening till now for 2013.”
Hrithik Roshan’s Krrish 3 was also sold at approx 3 crore in the same region. The film is a successful franchise and brings back Rakesh and Hrithik Roshan.

Ra.One was sold for 3 crore, given SRK has been a part of the industry for over 20 years. Ra.One was an expensive film.
