New Delhi: Bollywood's blue-eyed boy Ranbir Kapoor is currently basking in the success of his last release 'Sanju', a biopic based on the controversial life of superstar Sanjay Dutt. The actor played the titular role of Dutt and earned rave reviews for his performance.
'Sanju' helmed by Rajkumar Hirani turned out to be the biggest hit this year so far. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Ranbir opened up on how success and failures affect him. When asked about handling both, he said, “Actually, handling success is easy. When you are successful, you don’t really feel it because people are only full of praise, but failure teaches you a lot. One may feel that like failure, success can also be handled, but failure is a way tougher opponent. It will slap you hard, and you won’t even realise it. It [the feeling of facing failures] doesn’t even happen immediately. It will come after a year or two, because you start realising slowly that you have gone through failure.”
When prodded further on whether people's behaviour changed towards him, the 'Sanju' actor said, “See, if somebody is changing, it is fine with me, maybe because I don’t even give myself too much importance. I feel I am just an average actor and a below-average person, who just got great opportunities. Yes, I have good belief and confidence in myself that I can do something. And that’s why I am successful because otherwise, I am not saving the world. I am just acting in movies so just can’t take it that seriously.”
On the professional front, he will next be seen in 'Brahmastra', a film by Ayan Mukerji and backed by Dharma Productions. It stars Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy.
