"I judge myself as somebody who's very mediocre and eighty percent of the times when people compliment me, I believe that they're not saying the truth. And, I think it's also a little bit of that, that I don't believe them. So, I'd rather not listen to something that I don't.. more believe in."
Ranbir Kapoor talks about how he reacts to praise, his upcoming films Jagga Jasoos and Sanjay Dutt biopic, both of which he is really excited about, and much more. A not to be missed interview for any Ranbir fan!
"Of course, it’s a small matter that Ranbir Kapoor’s nuanced performance was one of the most extraordinary portrayals of a leading character well in touch with his feminine side. Look at the film again — look at his babydoll dance; his bag when he’s at the airport (d.. moreid anyone even notice?); his gait at Alizeh’s wedding; the mehendi on his hands; his pretending to be a bride; his easy tears; his non-embrace of a macho indifference in the face of tumult. Karan Johar’s obvious influence is strong here, but it’s easy to miss when you’re looking for ways to rip apart a Bollywood love fantasy. In fact, it has been reduced to characterising Ayan as a man-child. Five years ago we would have said 'kitna rota hai, ladki ke jaise'. Irony?"
