Ranbir tries to mansplain Katrina’s character in Jagga Jasoos. She shuts him down

Katrina Kaif would not have any of Ranbir Kapoor’s mansplaining at a recent interview for Jagga Jasoos.

In what may very well have been the most awkward interview in each of their careers, Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor turned up to answer some questions on their upcoming film, Jagga Jasoos at MTV Insider.

Katrina is not amused.
Katrina is not amused.

Before we delve more into what happened at the interview, here’s a primer into their history together: Katrina and Ranbir were rumoured to be a couple for almost five years, since 2011. They worked together on Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani and Rajneeti. There were also reports that the two had started living together. However, the two broke up in 2016, and things have not been the same since. There was a lot of trouble with the shoots for Jagga Jasoos, which took a long time to complete because the two apparently had issues working with each other.

In this interview with VJ Xerxes, the tension seems palpable as Ranbir tries to speak over Katrina’s words and she rolls her eyes at his behaviour.

At one point, when Ranbir was done answering a question posed at him, Xerxes asked Katrina about her character, Shruti’s relationship with Jagga. Katrina begins speaking on what she thought of the character and how they are both emotional people when Ranbir jumps in saying how Katrina’s character treats his like a kid, ‘like he knows nothing’. Katrina cuts him saying, “And in real life he treats me like a kid like I know nothing because he won’t let me finish my sentences.”

Ranbir interjects: “In life, I am talking about in film. ”

He doesn’t take a clue as Katrina mimes slapping her forehead, visibly irritated, and goes to explain her character even further. “Her character is disaster prone. She is calamity Jane. Wherever she goes, disaster follows...,” he says as Katrina mimes “I can also say this.”

Katrina then gives it to him straight: “You do realise you’re talking about my character when I am sitting right here.”

Ranbir replies, “Yeah, but you are not saying it properly. I am the producer of the film. I can talk about it.”

For his second last question, Xerxes asks Katrina how it was to work with Ranbir. She says “Before, he used to come to the sets thinking we are in this together. Now he comes on the sets to teach me and we just need to understand that we are in his great presence.”

Ranbir says, “I just want to... you know... better her in any which way possible as a human being and as an artist, as an actress, as a star.” Katrina kept shaking her head as he spoke at length about her, rolling her eyes and silently mouthing “unbelievable, shocking”.
