Ranbir kapoor and deepika padukone dating 2016
He was cast as Kabir "Bunny" Thapar, a commitment-phobic photographer, a character Kapoor found to be an extension of himself.After a year-long absence from the screen, Kapoor featured as a mysterious thief in Roy (2015), a romantic thriller which critic Sarita Tanwar described as a "boring, exhausting and pretentious" film. Kapoor is the recipient of several awards, including five Filmfare Awards.
The film was a moderate financial success, but garnered little praise from the critics.
Directed by Anurag Basu, the film (set in the 1970s) tells the story of its titular protagonist (a deaf and mute man, played by Kapoor) who falls in love with a woman who is already engaged (played by Ileana D'Cruz) and later, an autistic girl (played by Priyanka Chopra).
In preparation, Kapoor observed the work of actors Roberto Benigni, Charlie Chaplin, and his grandfather.
Kapoor described it as his first complex role and considered it a departure from the "lover boy roles" that he had previously played.
Nikhat Kazmi of The Times of India reviewed: "The film finally belongs to Ranbir Kapoor who perfects the art of minimalism—and literally grows before your eyes—as the simmering volcano that cannot be held back, once it erupts." Robert Abele of the Los Angeles Times, however, was more critical of his performance which he considered "stony rather than calculating—especially jarring compared to the histrionic turns around him".
