Vidhu Vinod Chopra: Ranbir is incredible actor with stupid script choices
Ups and downs are a part of life and even if you are a child of a celebrity it applies the same, everyone goes through the paces of their own life the way they are meant to and there’s nothing much one can do about it.
Actor Ranbir Kapoor has seen it all. He has been a part of magical films like BARFI but in recent times his films have not been able to make a huge statement on the box office, it could be purely luck or just a case of picking up the wrong script but that hasn’t haltered his spirits.
In a recent event while releasing the teaser for his upcoming film SANJU, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra said, "Ranbir is an incredible actor with stupid script choices".
Ranbir was asked if this film could change his fate to which he replied, "If every actor knew what he was doing and had a plan, everyone would be a superstar. So it is hard and I am trying to learn from my own mistakes."
Further adding "I keep reminding myself that it's just a bend, not the end. Life is very difficult and requires a lot of hard work and you have to keep working, like Raju sir's film title, LAGE RAHO."
Ranbir further stated that having known Sanjay Dutt all his life he always considered himself a fan adding, "I have always been a Sanjay Dutt fan, for me, it was a fan trying to play his icon. So I think the hardest thing I did was to give myself the confidence that I can play this man.
Speaking on the lack of confidence Ranbir said, "When Raju sir told me about this film, I didn't have the confidence because I thought I wouldn't be able to do it. I don't have the courage; don't have the understanding or the acting chops to do it. This is not an acting gig for me. I haven't tried to show good acting, bad acting or showcase my talent. I think it was just the opportunity to be part of a story of a person who I consider to be my icon."
Playing the lead in this film has been a learning curve for Ranbir as a lot of research and hard work was involved, Ranbir had a specific plan and learnt a great deal from the director saying, "What I learned from Raju sir is the power of entertainment. Not what's entertaining to you but what's entertaining to people, and I think when a filmmaker makes a film for an audience and not for himself, that's such a learning in itself and a selfless act."
Directed by Rajkumar Hirani and produced by Viduy Vinod Chopra. Presented by Fox Star Studios, SANJU will release on June 29.
