Mumbai: Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor says his interest in direction is an "immature dream" which will take a long time to fulfil as he is busy consolidating his position as an actor.

But the 27-year-old Kapoor scion says that he is determined to see his dream come true.

"It would be definitely under RK banner and I would like to direct and act in the film too. But currently I am too busy as an actor," he told reporters.

Ranbir said he wants to consolidate his position as an actor first so that the family can trust him more. The six-film-old actor, who has attempted political thriller like `Raajneeti`, story of an underdog `Rocket Singh`, coming of age movie `Wake Up Sid!` and a comedy `Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani`, felt action was a tricky genre.

"The script should be convincing for me to pull off such kind of movie," he felt.

About his relationship with father Rishi Kapoor, he said the relationship was not that of a friend, but an orthodox father-son relationship.

"It is the kind he shared with his father Raj Kapoor. We talk more because I have become an actor. We talk about films, directors and investments since he looks after my finances," he said.

Ranbir said as a young boy, he was scared of his father`s short temper.

"He never raised his voice or hand on me. But, when I fussed over eating vegetables in the dining table, he would raise his voice. I would finish off the vegetables in my plate with tears in my ears. Now, he ensures that I am given mixed vegetable juice every morning. Main woh naak bandh karke peeta hoon," he said.

Ranbir said he wants to connect with fans only through movies and would avoid social networking platforms. "Platforms like Twitter will have only praise and compliments from followers. Critics will be in minority. Too much of a praise will make actors lose their sense of balance. It is very important for actors to maintain their sanctity,"
he felt.
