Ranbir Kapoor is in the news again when an interview with him became viral in the threads of Jagga Jasoos, his first movie as a producer. He talks at length about topics ranging from his movie to his social media absence to his relationship with Katrina Kaif.
On the retirement of Daniel Day-Lewis, Ranbir Kapoor expresses his awe for the actor, admiring his sacrifice of money, attention, and fame. He says that if there came a time when he stopped enjoying his work, he hoped that he would have the courage to do the same. He admired the actor and would miss him in the movies.
On being asked that coming from a long line of actors, would he ever be able to give up acting, he replies that he doesn’t know if he would be able to do so. He was then asked about the lack of a PR and a social media account. Ranbir Kapoor replied that he feels that he is not interesting enough that people would enjoy his presence on any social media platform and that he does have a platform to interact with his fans which are movies.
He was then enquired about his first experience as a producer and Ranbir said that he did not feel in control and also felt like he was not cut out to be a producer. He described himself as poor in managing things and lazy. Anurag Basu handled everything according to Ranbir.
Ranbir goes into length describing how hard it was to shoot through three years and how Anurag Basu and his vision kept everything together. He describes his character and tells that Jagga stammers while talking but has an effortless voice when he sings.
On being asked if his work relationship had changed with Katrina Kaif during the three years of shooting when the couple broke up, Ranbir Kapoor denies it saying that when they are on set, they leave all their personal baggage behind and just act. He describes his relationship with Katrina as a positive one, disregarding all that has been said and written about the two. He goes on to say that she has a very positive influence on him, both as an actor and a human, and he couldn’t miss having her in his life.
