Ranbir Kapoor as Arthur Shelby

Arthur Shelby is the oldest brother in the Peaky Blinders family. Ranbir Kapoor would be a perfect fit for this role. He is not too keen on holding the responsible position and is often seen backing his younger brother. Kapoor has played several such roles in the past where he does not want to be what society expects him to be. He is rather seen as a carefree individual who is laid back but can do anything for his loved ones.
