Actor RanbirKapoor, who is going through a lean patch in his career, says there is pressure on him to deliver a success with his upcoming 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 said, when asked if there was pressure on him to deliver a hit after his failures.
Surprisingly, the string of flops came after Ranbir delivered the biggest hit of his career YehJawaaniHaiDeewani.
Ranbir had famously made his debut in Sanjay LeelaBhansali’sSaawariya eight years ago. Ranbir called it ‘the most important film’ of his life, and accepted that it was a disaster.
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 was now praying that Tamasha proved 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 including JaggaJasoos and AeDilHaiMushkil. He has also given his nod to the biopics on Kishore Kumar and Sanjay Dutt.
