Pinkvilla poll result: Ranbir Kapoor emerges as the best choice among fans to play Rajesh Khanna on screen

A few days ago, Pinkvilla conducted a poll and asked fans, movie lovers and die-hard cinema lovers which actor would be suitable to play superstar Rajesh Khanna on screen. If you’ve been in the dark, let’s keep you updated first. According to reports, actor-producer Nikhil Dwivedi has bought the rights to turn Gautam Chintamani’s book, Dark Star: The Loneliness of Being Rajesh Khanna, into a movie.

At the same time, we asked Pinkvilla’s readers, “Who would you love to see step into the biography of superstar Rajesh Khanna?” Our list of five options included Ranbir Kapoor, Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkummar Rao, Tiger Shroff and Shahid Kapoor.

It turns out that Ranbir Kapoor has proven to be the most preferred choice to play superstar Rajesh Khanna in his biography. Over 350 readers voted in the poll, and Ranbir took the top spot with 38% of the vote.

Followed by Ranbir, the second-favorite was Ayushmann Khurrana, who received 25% of the vote. At number three is actor Shahid Kapoor, who scored 24% of the total votes. Rajkummar Rao and Tiger Shroff were at the bottom of the list with 13% and 0% votes respectively. According to statistics, Tiger Shroff received only two votes.

In addition to the votes, several readers also expressed their opinion via comments, which greatly highlighted Ranbir, Ayushmann and Shahid as the preferred choice.
