We all knew Ranbir Kapoor as an actor! But we did not know his hidden talent as an ad maker. The actor's advertisment has been selected to complete at the finals of the Cannes Lion Award, reports Mid Day.
Ranbir has conceptualised the ad for a car brand.
The event sees some of the best ads from around the world every year.
"While most other ads that reach the finals are less than one minute-long, this ad covers the span of almost four minutes," reports the tabloid.
Ranbir Kapoor has worked as an assistant director in dad Rishi Kapoor's Aa Ab Laut Chalein and Sanjay Leela's Bhansali's Black.
“Ranbir will host a premiere of this ad this month," a source told the tabloid.
The advertisement was directed by RK’s close friend Ahmed Khan. The source adds, “They are really hoping for a win.”
Interestingly, the ad has already made its way to the Guinness World Book of Records, for featuring almost 100 cars of the same make.
We are proud of you, Ranbir!
