Ranbir was very apprehensive about playing a gay character on screen before but after the response Fawad got for his role in Kapoor & Sons, Ranbir is now ready to walk down that lane.
In a recent interview with a famous magazine, Ranbir has opened up about his personal and professional life.
On being asked if he would play a homosexual on camera, Ranbir said, “Sure, but now it’s already been done. Now he’s (Fawad has) opened the door and it’s easy for us to walk through it. But earlier I must honestly say I might have turned it down.” He is also willing to play second lead in a movie, but conditions apply.
He said, “Suppose tomorrow Rajkumar Hirani offers me the part of Circuit to the new ‘Munnabhai’. I would play it and try my best to do it justice.”
Ranbir is currently training for Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Dragon’. He awaits Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil,’ and also has Anurag Basu’s long-gestating ‘Jagga Jasoos’ lined up.
Referring to his current shoot-less days, Ranbir said, “I think I could have an alcohol problem. It is a visual medium and I have to look after myself. When I shoot, when I work, I don’t drink. But when I’m not shooting”.
Ranbir is very interested in being a director but says,“Look, I know how a film is made, but a director has to find the method to tell the story he has to tell. I’m not, because a) I’m lazy and b) acting is taking up my time and I don’t have a story, I can’t write.”
He also reminisces about the days he was on the sets of ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani’. Ranbir said, “It had simple storytelling, it had heart, and I also fell in love during that film, with Katrina.”
He also added, “Katrina, after my parents, has been the most inspiring and motivating factor in my life. Period. That is too dear to me and there is no explanation, there is nothing I can tell you about it. Nobody will understand it. And I don’t want to sell it.”
Whoa! Now that’s an honest interview.
