His last few films have not only bombed at the box office but have also attracted flak from critics over his performance. And Ranbir Kapoor is not one to say filmmakers will make the films they want to. Rather, the Bombay Velvet star says that if the movies don't work at the box office, actors deserve to be criticized.
"I think an actor is given a lot of credit when the film is a hit. When my films do well, I'm showered with love and appreciation. So, when my film does not do well, the criticism should be for me," Ranbir Kapoor, said at the Puma home kit launch for Mumbai City FC. His last two films Roy and Bombay Velvet had a damp show at the ticket windows.
"I should be criticized because it (the movie) was my choice, I worked in it, the audience showed faith in me and came to see the movie, and when they don't like it, the result should be for me," he added.
His team didn't perform well last season, Ranbir took it graciously. "It is necessary for an actor or a sportsman to graciously accept both loss and success. Humility and goodness are very important. They are an actor's virtue," he said.
Speaking about his collegues and co-players, he said, "Many people from the (film) industry play football...Abhishek Bachchan, Arjun Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Dino Morea, to name a few. In my humble opinion, I am the best player in the industry. I have heard Shah Rukh Khan plays good football, even John Abraham was a school captain. I have not played with them but yes, amongst those playing now, I am the best."
