Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor maintains he never said he was desperate to share screen space with Shah Rukh Khan, but admitted he would love to work with the superstar if a good project came his way.
"I had no such dil ki tamanna (heartfelt desire) to work with Shah Rukh sir. But I respect him a lot. I am a big fan of his," Ranbir told reporters on the margins of the HT Leadership Summit here Friday.
The 28-year-old, who was here with his father, evergreen star Rishi Kapoor, says a superstar's presence in a project isn't reason enough for him to accept it.
"It's not that if a superstar will be there in a film, I'll agree to do it. But if I like a film, I like its script, I would be more than glad to do it," he added.
Nevertheless, Ranbir enjoys the attention he gets from the youth.
"If a generation follows me, they follow my movies and they want to emulate me…it feels good. But I really don't take that seriously. I do not feel responsible for others (youth). I feel responsible to my work. Whatever I am doing is for myself, and because this is what I want to achieve, these are the goals that I have set...," he said.
