Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor, who is often referred to as the next superstar admitted that he is burdened because of the 'star son' tag that is always carried with him.
He wants to carve out his own identity but because of this tag, it is not easy. "I want people to recognise me by my work. I am burdened by this tag called 'the star son'. People say I got everything easily, yes, I got my first film easily because people were curious about me. After that I have worked hard, experienced things. It is important to make an identity of my own," Ranbir said.
Ranbir was born in to a family full of cine-stars. He is the grandson of legendary Raj Kapoor and son of veteran actors Neetu and Rishi Kapoor. "My parents feel very proud when somebody calls them Ranbir Kapoor's parents. Every father and mother wants that for their child. I hope that I make them proud and carry forward the legacy of my family in my own distinct way," he said.
Rishi Kapoor who has made it big in Bollywood in the past is again gaining the attention with his negative roles in films. Ranbir tells us that this is like a second career for his father. "He has made me realise one thing that stars fade and actors always remain. This is his second career as a character actor. The biggest thing is to have excitement and passion even at this age," he said.
Besharam is the first film in which Ranbir shares the screen space with his parents. The movie will hit the theatres on Wednesday, October 2. Do come back as we will update you on how the Kapoor family will fair together on-screen in Besharam. (Inputs from PTI)
