Speaking at the India Today Conclave in September 2020, Ranbir said, “My father (Rishi Kapoor) was very bullish on sending me for further education because he wanted me to start a business. He wanted me to start something basically that I could fall back on if my film career never took off. This was his plan if I failed in my film career. However, films is where I wanted to live in – even if it meant directing or producing.”

Ranbir went on to add, “In dramatics, whenever I used to audition, they never selected me. Sometimes, I would get a five-minute role only because I was a celebrity’s son. It was quite demotivating thinking that I am not good enough. I wanted to be an actor but I was not good in acting. Moreover, I come from a film family so that put a lot of pressure on me. I had a legacy to carry forward, there were a lot of responsibilities to shoulder.”

By taking up challenging roles and delivering terrific performances in films, Ranbir has proved he is a good actor. The actor was last seen in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva. He starred alongside Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy. Brahmastra did well at the box office.

Ranbir will be next seen in Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Animal.
