Now Rapchik Rajni wants me to hear about Ranbir Kapoor’s tribute to Charlie Chaplin. Seems Ranboo has been a fan of the legendary actor-filmmaker ever since his bachpan ke din.. so he was no less thrilled when told that he’d have to done Chaplin’s avatar for a scene in Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahani.
So to prepare for the sequence, Ranboo diligently studied the Charlie Chaplin series a friend gifted him, says Rajni. She also adds that the Kapoor lad also put in a lot of research to get his look right, including the clothes et al.
Apparently, as a child Ranboo had a huge collection of Charlie Chaplin posters and was so awed by his Hollywood idol that he went to the extent of putting the legend’s pictures on his books.
Hmm, so much like his grandfather, Raj Kapoor, who also displayed his Chaplinesque streak sometimes, says Rajni. Hmm.
