Done with playing the boy who has a ‘coming of age’ moment, Ranbir will now develop the physique of a man for future roles

Ranbir Kapoor, one of today’s most happening young stars is all set to go from scrawny to brawny. After five releases where Ranbir has maintained an extremely thin physique, he will now be seen flaunting a more muscular and manly look as his roles get more mature.

Evidently, both, Siddharth Anand’s Anjana Anjani and Imtiaz Ali’s next film, due to start shooting after March, require this of him.

Says a source, “Both the characters require Ranbir to play a man and not a boy. In all his films so far he has played a boy just stepping into maturity and facing the hardships of life. In Anjana Anjani he plays a man on the move and must match his physical appearance with Priyanka Chopra who’s chronologically older than Ranbir and therefore automatically perceived to be older than him by the audience.”

In Imtiaz Ali’s film too Ranbir, for the first time, plays an intense lover.

Ranbir has changed his exercising regime in the gym and is now doing a training that would build his muscles.

Says Ranbir, “Yes I am beefing up my physique for next year. Change is good, don’t you think?”
