Mumbai: Actor Ranbir Kapoor, who is going through a lean patch in his career, says there is pressure on him to deliver a success with his romantic film “Tamasha”.
“Of course, my last three films, ‘Besharam’, ‘Roy’ and ‘Bombay Velvet’ haven’t worked, so there is pressure because we don’t make films for ourselves, but make it for the audience,” Ranbir said.
“That audience or my fans who had trusted me might have said that ‘Ranbir does good films’. But when they came to the theatre, perhaps I didn’t perform to make their money worth it,” he added here when asked if there was pressure on him to deliver a hit after his failures.
Surprisingly, his three flops came after delivering the biggest hit of his career “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani”.
Ranbir had famously made his debut in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Saawariya” eight years ago. He terms the film as “the most important film of my life”, and accepts that it was a disaster. But he still maintains that he had a lot to learn from the film’s debacle.
Talking about his selection of films, the “Barfi” actor said: “It is my aim with every film, that I do good films and good acting. My method of choosing the kind of films that I do is the same. It’s not that a year ago I was doing less acting and I will now do more acting.”
“What I can do is work with my heart, but I don’t have any control over the final destiny of the film — whether it’d be hit or flop.”
Ranbir said he’s now praying that “Tamasha” proves to the audience that “there is still something” about him.
“I’m very attached to films and very passionate about acting. I don’t know anything else,” added the actor, who belongs to Bollywood’s famous Kapoor family.
Despite the failures and pressure, Ranbir has an interesting line-up of films “Jagga Jasoos” and “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”. He has also given his nod for the biopics on Kishore Kumar and Sanjay Dutt.
