Punjabi film industry's most adorable comedian, Rana Ranbir, is once again ready to expose the writer in him with his second book, Kin Min Tip Tip.

This jack-of-all-trades can juggle all roles assigned to him with an uncanny ease and perfection. Thanks to his theatre background, the actor-turned-comedian-turned-writer enjoys each assignment he takes up. Be it playing the funny man of Jatt & Juliet and Carry On Jatta or penning down film dialogues and songs, Rana Ranbir doesn't miss a chance to impress. We get talking to the man, as he shares notes on his upcoming movies and his upcoming book, Kin Min Tip Tip.

About his recent success in films such as Jatt & Juliet and Carry On Jatta, Ranbir says, "Punjabi cinema is witnessing a boom and being a part of it feels great. The real reward for me is when children come up to me and address me by the names of the characters that I have played."

Amongst his upcoming films are Ajj De Ranjhe, Nabbar, Saadi Wakhri Hai Shaan and Yamley Jatt Yamley, "I have penned the dialogues of Ajj De Ranjhe and am also playing the character of constable Munshi in the film. The film is a full fledged entertainer with dollops of comedy and action," says he.

Ranbir, who has been featured in 27 films till now and is ready to take on roles that challenge him as an actor, says, "I am doing a film titled Nabbar, which is a commercial-cum-art film, where I essay the role of a struggling actor from Punjab, who goes to Mumbai in search of work. The character is one of the pivotal characters in the film and is very different from the roles I have played so far; the role reminds me of my theatre days."

Besides acting, Ranbir keeps himself more than busy with writing. Now, he is ready with his second book of poetry, songs and ghazals - Kin Min Tip Tip. The book comes after his first, Sach Sock Tae Supne (1992), which came about during his Desh Bhagat College days in Dhuri. Talking about the upcoming book, Ranbir says, "I have been penning my musings, poetry, songs and ghazals from the past four years and have compiled them now in a book, which will hit the markets on September 3.

The book is being released by Chetna Publications and has a preface by Surjit Patar. The book has poetry, which is soulful, rakes up social causes, is introspective and is a reflection of my understanding of life."
