In an interview to Indian Express, Ranbir Kapoor was confident enough to say that the response to his upcoming film Besharam, directed by Abhinav Kashyap, has been more negative than positive.
“We are aware that not only the music but the overall response is more negative than positive. But I stand by the film and we hope that people will like it in its entirety. It reduces the expectations from a film, providing a chance to surprise the audience.” he said.
When asked if the super-success of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani has helped him crossover to the ‘superstar’ league, Kapoor said that he is arrogant enough to say that he will be a ‘superstar’ in a few years, but now isn’t the time to give him the status that only Amitabh Bachchan and the Khans deserve.
“I want to become a superstar, but for that, I first have to be a super actor. To choose good scripts and work with the right directors is the first step. But more importantly, I need a larger body of work.”
“The word ‘superstar’ these days is used for anybody who delivers a Friday hit. Amitabh Bachchan and the Khans have worked for many years.I am just 14 films and six years old in the industry. I know I’ll achieve it in a few years from now and I’m arrogant enough to say that, but now isn’t the time.”
Besharam releases in theatres on October 2nd 2013.
