Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor is currently busy promoting his recently released movie Shamshera. Along with that, he is all set to release his next film Brahmastra with his lovely wife Alia Bhatt. The actor is currently on a roll. During such promotional event of his film Shamshera along with his co-star, Vaani Kapoor the actor talked about his late father Rishi Kapoor. He went on to reveal Rishi Kapoor’s opinion on his choice of movies.
Recently, Ranbir and Vaani appeared on the B4U podcast Hear It Here. The actor went on to reveal his father’s thoughts on the choice of his films. Ranbir said, “When I started off, I always heard the words, Family and Legacy, and I always looked up to it as a responsibility. Fortunately for me, I had the good sense that if I had to succeed in this industry, I had to do it on my own terms, and I had to be individualistic about it.”
He further added, “So, there was a lot of debate on the kind of films I was doing which came from my father, Rishi Kapoor. “What are you doing? If you want to be a mainstream actor. You cannot do films like Wake Up Sid, Barfi, or Rockstar and films like that. But it was very important for me to follow my heart and choose subjects that appeal to me so I could put myself in those characters,”
The actor concludes by saying, “I am very proud of my legacy, but it is not something that I have taken for granted. It is not something that I have ever thrown at people, and I feel very responsible for it. In the film Shamshera, Balli (the son) has to take (his father) Shamshera’s legacy forward, but he is very reluctant. He doesn’t want to be a part of the tribe. Also, he wants to join the British forces and be a police officer. He is very different from where I come from,”
