He says he would love to play a negative role, something that is like an anti-hero. Something without guitars, roses and without a heroine. But no director in Bollywood is apparently willing to give Ranbir Kapoor that chance.

“I have been asking this for a long time, and I hope the directors are listening and coming up with scripts like that,” said the 30-year-old, who has received critical acclaim for his portrayal of a troubled singer in Rockstar (2011) and a deaf and mute man in Barfi! (2012).

However, the Kapoor scion is now busy shooting Ayan Mukerji’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani in which he has jived to a number in the signature style of his grand-uncle, Shammi Kapoor.

Titled Badtameez Dil, the song has Ranbir performing steps that seem inspired from songs such as Aaja Aaja Main Hoon Pyaar Tera (Teesri Manzil, 1966) and Baar Baar Dekho (China Town, 1962).

Ayan Mukerji, the director of the film, however feels that the similarities are coincidental. “I don’t know if we can call it an ode to Shammiji; it wasn’t a planned move. But now, when we look at some of the moves and Ranbir’s mad energy, the similarities can’t be ignored,” says Mukerji.
