Ranbir Kapoor willing to play homosexual on screen

Published

on

Mumbai, Aug 31 : Actor Ranbir Kapoor says that had Pakistani actor Fawad Khan not “opened the door” by playing a homosexual character in “Kapoor & Sons”, he would have perhaps turned down an offer to play a gay on screen. But now the “Barfi!” star is receptive to the idea.

The actor opened up about his professional as well as personal life in an interview taken by director Raja Sen for Vogue India’s September 2016 issue, which is available on the stands from September 3.

Ranbir lauds his contempories for taking up risky roles — be it Alia Bhatt in “Udta Punjab” and Fawad in “Kapoor & Sons”.

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 earlierÂ? I must honestly say I might have turned it down.”

He is also willing to play a 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 living with his grandmother Krishna here and 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.

In February, after “Dragon”, he hopes to start shooting for Rajkumar Hirani’s next, a biopic of actor Sanjay Dutt.

Since his debut with “Saawariya”, Ranbir has seen several highs and lows.

He was applauded for films like “Wake Up Sid”, “Raajneeti”, “Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year”, “Rockstar”, “Barfi!”, “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani”, and was censured for duds like “Besharam” and “Bombay Velvet”.

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 shootingÂ?”.

Directing a film is something Ranbir has for long expressed interest in. But the actor says there is still time for him to get to the director’s chair.

“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 said.
