The Barfi! actor is invited by the prestigious American university to be a guest lecturer

Ranbir Kapoor might have played some interesting roles on the big screen, but the young actor is all set to play an interesting part in real life too – that of a lecturer. Yes, the 31-year-old star has been invited by Yale University to be a guest speaker in April this year.

Interestingly, Bollywood’s baadshah Shahrukh Khan was named a Chubb Fellow by Yale last year and he had even addressed a packed house at the Ivy League of School. And now B-town’s emerging prince Ranbir will charm the students and his ardent fans at Yale with his delightful presence.

Ranbir has already been receiving heaps of accolades and adulation for his incredible performance in Anurag Basu’s film Barfi! A year before that, the Kapoor lad was immensely appreciated for his performance in Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar. Ranbir is certainly a star power to reckon with and his selection of films have been absolutely commendable.

And now with the Yale invitation in his hands, the honey-eyed actor will fly to the States to make the students understand the dynamics of Bollywood and our film business. Now we are curious to know how the actor will rock his session as a speaker! We are sure Ranbir will keep it entertaining, enthralling and enlightening!

'Transcendence' review: The film is clunky and lifeless

If Spike Jonze's 'Her' imagined a delicate, heartfelt romance between man and his artificially intelligent operating system, then 'Transcendence', directed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister, takes a less optimistic view of the future, cautioning us about the dangers of relying too heavily on technology. They're two sides of the same coin, but where 'Her' felt fresh, original, and forward-looking, Pfister's film trades in familiar clichés.
