Mumbai: Post his unceremonious break-up with leggy Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor’s love life came under intense media scrutiny so much so that the actor was hailed as the tinsel town’s casanova.
Apparently, despite the numerous link-ups and rumours, Ranbir Kapoor says that his image is ‘exaggerated’. Talking to a daily on his lady killer image, the blue-eyed boy of Kapoor khandaan said, “Initially it was embarrassing. Now, it`s okay. I enjoy it sometimes. Not everything written is a lie though. Eighty per cent of it is the truth, the exaggerated version, of course. They make my life out to be more glamorous than it actually is. On the contrary, I lead a very simple life. I wake up, brush my teeth, go to work and come back home.”
When enquired whether the actor is seeing someone or single, Ranbir quipped, “Yes I am single, I`m not married and I love women. I`m very heterosexual, so dating women is something I`m not ashamed of. But my love life is not as exciting as it is reported to be.”
However, Ranbir too had his share of break-ups as the charming actor said, “Of course, everyone has. The pain is however, not as melodramatic as it is in the movies. One day, when I was speaking to director Imtiaz, he summed up the film beautifully in these few lines – ‘In life, there is that one person whom you deeply love and that same person can also destroy you, but this is what makes you who you are. And the film is about that journey’.”
The actor, who will be seen in Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Rockstar’ can’t stop raving about his co-star Nargis Fakhri. “Nargis told me that the day she first met Imtiaz, it took her probably three hours to know him completely. They shared their life stories with each other. The kind of work she has put into this film, considering she has never acted in her life and has hardly watched any Hindi films, amazed us. She is the surprise of this film,” he said.
