After entertaining us with hit films like Barfi and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, the handsome and talented Ranbir Kapoor will soon be seen in Abhinav Kashyap’s forthcoming film Besharam. Ranbir will be supported by debutante actress Pallavi Sharda, who will play the female lead role in the film. It was being said earlier that Ranbir was not quite happy about Pallavi being cast in the film. However, the actor brushed it aside saying that he is usually glad when new actresses enter the industry. Ranbir Kapoor also spoke about his relationship with Katrina Kaif, his rumoured girlfriend. He said she is a very special person in his life.
After delivering hit films like Barfi and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, you will be seen in Besharam. What is your expectation from the film?
I did not expect Barfi to do well at the Box Office, but I was sure it will be appreciated by the critics. As for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, there were lot of things in our favour… for instance, mine and Deepika’s hit jodi, romance and the wonderful script of the film. Besharam is a complete masala flick. There is romance, action, dance and songs…everything that is required for a film to be a hit. Moreover, the film has a very interesting script. So I am not expecting anything in particular nor do I have any sort of pressure on me. With this film, I only want to entertain my audience.
Has the script of Besharam been written with you in mind?
Abhinav did not write the script for me as such. He saw me as an actor who could fit in this role. He was pretty impressed with my performance in Rockstar and he told me at that point that he would come to me soon with a film proposal.
Salman Khan, during the Bigg Boss 7 press conference said that new actors like Ranbir Kapoor is giving actors like him a run for their money. What do you have to say regarding this?
I got to know that Salman Khan said so about me. This only goes to prove that Salman is not at all insecure as an actor. It also shows that Salman is an extremely good and composed actor. It’s only six years since I have started acting. However, actors like Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan are the superstars of the Bollywood industry. So when somebody speaks so highly of me, I feel very proud of myself.
