Having worked with both Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor in different films, Ranbir is the “all time favourite” for Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma.”I’m closer to Ranbir because we recently worked together. We have a good understanding between us... also during a bad time you become better friends because you have company since we did ‘Bombay Velvet’ together, which was a flop so we became closer,” she said.
Anushka however said that it would be unfair to draw a comparison between Ranbir and Ranveer as Ranbir has done “a lot of different roles” and has featured in much more number of films.
“My all time favourite is Ranbir Kapoor. He has done a lot of different roles. Ranveer on the other hand hasn’t done a lot of films yet but I think Ranbir has got a lot of opportunities and a lot of films to do and portrayed different roles. Actors are not bad or good, it is about what kind of films you are doing and roles that you are portraying is what matters,” she said.
“Ranbir has definitely got more opportunities with films like ‘Barfi!’, ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Rocket Singh’. So it won’t be fair to judge the actor’s right now. When Ranveer Singh comes down from the hyperactive persona of himself and does films like Bajirao Mastani... it stands out,” she added.
Anushka has said that some men are perhaps unable to adjust to the fact that the woman today is changing and is no longer dependent on anyone.
Giving her take on the growing divorce rate in the country, Anushka, who was in the national capital for Agenda Aaj Tak 2016, has said that while some people are able to adjust with changing times, some have a problem doing so, which leads to clashes and divorce. “I might be totally wrong about it but I believe that women today are changing and people are unable to adjust with it... at least some men are unable to adjust with that probably,” she said here on Tuesday.
“Today women are changing, their thinking pattern is changing, the beliefs are changing. Somewhere the equation that was there between a man and a woman, today it is not the same. That equation is changing because women are becoming financially independent. It is no longer about getting a roof over your head,” she added.
About the difference in spotlight for actors and actresses, Anushka also said that actresses have always been good performers. “I think actresses have always been very good performers. Actresses should be hyped more. Actors are over hyped,” the Sultan actress said.
Having featured in films like NH10, Sultan and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Anushka also said that song and dance sequences in a Hindi film is necessary but the focus as of now is on content. “Being a good dancer having six packs is superficial. In our country in the film music song and dance is necessary as a producer I know the important now. Right now a lot focus is being given to the content of the film. At the end of the day it is all business. Lately the films that have done well even if it is small or is it big, the stories of those films a very good and different... They were some amazing stories.”
“We can say that it is because of the audiences advancement and the changing thought process that has brought change in cinema right now. Now audiences are expecting something more and not just the music the song all the dance,” she added.
