Ranbir Kapoor has a long list of fans and that includes a
certain President Prathiba Patil. The new torch bearer of the
Kapoor dynasty had recently gone to the Rashtrapati Bhawan for the
release of his aunt Ritu Nanda's book on his grandfather the
legendary Raj Kapoor.
The actor was fascinated by the paintings and architecture of
the Rashtripati Bhawana. He was overjoyed with the reception he
received from the First Citizen of the country. Ranbir's dad Rishi
Kapoor was also present on the occasion. The President also spoke
to the Kapoors about the movie Sri 420 and Bobby which was
incidentally Rishi's debut movie.
The President who is a movie fan herself expressed her desire to
watch the movie Saawariya as it is directed by Sanjay Leela
Bhansali who had made hits like Devdas and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.
All this left the young Ranbir so overwhelmed that he wished to
receive his first national award from Mrs. Patil.
