Response to Besharam more negative than positive: Ranbir

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.



  • Ranbir Kappor is a hard-working actor with very
    modish personality but needs to be conscious at
    the scripts that he chooses to act on. Audiences
    expect something extra-ordinary now a days. So
    the stored energy must be preserved using over
    it in the right place. He has done “Barfi” Hats off
    to him for that new variety of role but he is kind
    of repeating the same variety in the wrong title !
    As a result expectations of the movie won’t be a
    satisfactory thing for the team having star power
    nearer to King Khan or Salman Khan. (Dialogues
    of the movie could have been better.) Moreover,
    he shouldn’t have looked down upon the movies
    of Salman and King Khan by attitude. Thank you.
