Ranbir Kapoor about Saawariya

Ranbir Kapoor has perhaps the best debut that any Bollywood can dream of. You know that his movie ‘Saawariys’ is coming to the screens on this Diwali in India. Diwali is the largest festival in India and that is why, the biggest blockbuster movies are released at that time. So, Ranbir Kapoor is really lucky that he has got the first movie in such a way. Saawariya has already created a lot of attention among the people and media. I have already visited the official website and I got impressed with the quality of the making of the movie. I liked the use of color and design and the whole movie has an artistic flavor in it. Of course, Ranbir Kapoor has to be in the heart of the acting not with the making of the movie. The credit of making of the movie goes to Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Sanjay Leela Bhansali is always famous of making quality movies. So, Ranbir Kapoor is really very lucky to get the opportunity to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Ranbir Kapoor recently gave an interview to Indiafm and there he talked about Saawariya. Here is an extract of the interview:

Saawariya is a dream come to true for any debutant. Do you think your dreams have come true with Saawariya?

Absolutely, my dream was to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. With that aim, I assisted him in the film Black and today my dream has come true.

According to Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Saawariya is a simplistic young love story. Does that make Saawariya simply special?

Yes. It is a special film for me, for Sonam and for Sanjay. Since, it is our debut-film it is special for us as newcomers. Saawariya is like a baby for Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Saawariya is a fantastic film about an unknown time and a place never visited. But you can still identify with the characters, the time and the place.

The hype surrounding the film is huge and expectations from you are immense. What is going through your mind right now as we talk?

Right now I am a little blank. I am in a state of shock because there is so much happening so fast, and then I dreamt of all these things while growing up, about being an aspiring actor, my first film, my first fan, my first autograph, etc. But when all of this is happening right now in front of my eyes all of a sudden I am speechless. It is quite heart warming. You are right! The hype surrounding the film and its music, its actors and the director will always be there and I hope that when Saawariya releases, the hype sustains and people are not disappointed.

Ranbir Kapoor has got the perfect brake that he needs but much depends on how the viewers accept him in the movie. Sonam Kapoor is also acting in the movie and she is the lead actress in the movie. I have feeling that Sonam Kapoor is getting much media attention these days and people are comparing her with Deepika Padukone who is the lead actress of another Diwali movie Om Shanti Om. So, Ranbir Kapoor should try to make better relationship with the media and should ensure better coverage for himself. Do you agree?
