In a Facebook live session along with Katrina Kaif, Ranbir Kapoor expressed his views on the issue of nepotism. The debate was started by Bollywood star Kangana Ranaut and Ranbir Kapoor becomes the latest celebrity to join the discussion.
While answering questions on the Facebook live session on Katrina Kaif’s Facebook page, Ranbir Kapoor affirmed the existence of nepotism everywhere with a special mention of the Bollywood film industry. The ex-couple was promoting their upcoming film, Jagga Jasoos, which is set to hit the screens on 14th of July.
Ranbir Kapoor said without a second thought that nepotism exists everywhere and more in the industry. He explained it in reference to his own family, saying that his great grandfather worked hard to leave a legacy for his family and so did his grandfather. He goes on to say that he himself will work hard so that his children get the right opportunity, platform, and first film. He also mentions that nepotism can only give you a chance and the rest is all about the person’s talent.
The two of them joked about each other on the live stream with Kaif joking that shooting with Ranbir was the toughest part of the movie while Ranbir held up signs of ‘Chikni Chameli’ behind Katrina’s head.
Jagga Jasoos took three long years to shoot and four years to release and after all the delays, it is finally set to release on July 14.
Ranbir showed how he cried on screen, talked about his favorite films and dialogues and his favorite people on Earth. Katrina scowled at the way Ranbir pronounced her name in response to Ranbir’s scowl on Katrina calling him ‘Ranbeer’.
Jagga Jasoos is directed by Anurag Basu and stars Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Sayani Gupta, Saswata Chatterjee, Saurabh Shukla, Denzil Smith, Karan Wahi, Mir Sarwar and Govinda among other actors. Shah Rukh Khan is set to make a cameo appearance in the movie.
