Ever since he lost the opportunity to be a part of Rajkumar Hirani"s 3 Idiots, Ranbir Kapoor has been looking for a reason to visit the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) in Bangalore where the film was shot. Ranbir has been telling friends, he didn"t mind missing out on the movie. But he did mind not being able to visit the IIM campus in Bangalore.
The opportunity to do so fell into Ranbir"s lap. He visited the IIM Bangalore yesterday, May 10, for an inter-face with students on the subject of Youth and Politics. And, Ranbir took no chances. He had been preparing hard for the big day in Bangalore. The topic of discussion was - should graduation be a compulsory qualification for entering politics?
Katrina and Ranbir argued against it, that graduation need not be compulsory. While Katrina Kaif, who accompanied him to the IIM, preferred the casual extempore approach while Ranbir wanted to get all the statistics on the subject so that he didn"t end up looking silly and ill-informed in the academic atmosphere.
Director Prakash Jha, who accompanied Katrina and Ranbir, is very impressed by Ranbir"s homework. “In fact he has been working the hardest to promote our film Raajneeti. While the rest of the cast has missed a couple of events, Ranbir has made sure he is there for everything. In fact, when one or the other of our team is missing Ranbir grumbles about why he"s the only constant."
