Ranbir Kapoor is sick of reading about himself. “I am sick of a lot of things actually. Sometimes people write about fictional movies I am doing, movies that I haven’t heard of. Fictional women in my life, women who I haven’t worked with and who I’m supposedly seeing. But I have learned to take all that in good humour,” said the actor, while in the Capital recently.
The actor added, “Usually press conferences are about similar kind of questions, but I expect people to ask me about the work I am here for, not about the women in my life.”
Ranbir said right now he is enjoying his single status. “I was pretty open when I was in a relationship and I’m equally open about my singlehood too. The media should respect that and not contradict me on that. Love is a beautiful feeling but, being single is also gratifying.” For the moment it is work that’s keeping the lad busy. “I’m trying to do interesting roles that suit my age, and with directors and actors who I’ve wanted to work with. I might be a star today but it is not sure that I will always be one. All I want is to die as an actor and be remembered as someone who was part of good cinema.”
And lineage rests heavy on Ranbir. “There is no pressure of being a Kapoor. But I take it as a compliment and a great legacy that I have to carry forward. I have to make movies that speak for themselves,” he said.
He confessed that he is not fond of social networking sites, “Firstly, I’m a shy actor. And secondly, I have nothing intelligent to say. I know it’s important to interact with your audience, but I’d rather let my films do the talking.”
