Ranbir soaring high on success
Actor Ranbir Kapoor, who is basking in the success of his latest filmTamasha after delivering back-to-back flops, said it’s his responsibility to give ‘good films’ to his fans, reported IANS.
“It’s my responsibility to give good films to my fans. My last few films didn’t work, but my approach towards my work hasn’t changed. I felt bad that I had let my fans down with a few flop films, but I just hope I can do better and entertain them again,” Ranbir said.
“We as actors don’t want to get typecast in this industry. We all want to play different characters because now we have opportunities. I feel it’s a great time for us to be in this film industry,” he added.
Ranbir shared one cannot challenge the audience and they are always the king when it comes to the box-office fate of any film. “As you grow older you realise you cannot challenge an audience because what they say is their verdict. If some people have not liked the film, you have to accept it,” he shared at the success bash of Tamasha.
At the event, Ranbir’s co-star and former girlfriend Deepika Padukone stated, “This is everybody’s effort that ‘Tamasha’ is doing well. But I am happy that finally people’s reaction about Ranbir has changed and he is getting praised for his performance,” reported Indian Express. “Since Ranbir’s last three movies have not done well, whatever people have been saying about him is now proved wrong. Ranbir is a talented actor and I just want him to be happy.”
Tamasha has kept the cash register ringing and has also garnered a positive response. The collections of the film in the opening weekend have been great and Ranbir shared that the film needs to do well on weekdays as well as during the next week to be considered a ‘success’.
While the film has fared well at the box office, it has received mixed views from critics. Speaking about this, Ranbir shared, “I think every film receives mixed responses. Very few films earn a unanimous response, but as of now I’d like to focus on the positives.”
Ranbir or Deepika, who is a better marketing guru?
About Deepika and director Imtiaz Ali, he said, “It feels good that Imtiaz’s dream and hard work have led to positive results.”
He added, “Deepika does every film from her heart. She is a fantastic actor and enjoys massive popularity and craze. I’m happy that this team came together and found this initial success.”
Of why Ranbir was off the film radar after his flops in Roy, Bombay Velvet and Besharam, he mentioned, “I hadn’t gone anywhere. I was still working in the same way. Just because my films didn’t work doesn’t mean I disappeared somewhere, I was always right here.”
Ranbir also has an interesting line-up of films, which include Jagga Jasoos and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. He has also given his nod for the biopics on Kishore Kumar and Sanjay Dutt.
