New Delhi, Aug. 25 -- Ranbir Kapoor is certainly one of the coolest actors in Bollywood. No matter what questions you throw at him - including the ones about his love life - he just doesn't lose his cool. While the 31-year-old won't admit that he's dating, he explains why he wishes to stay mum about his personal life.
Why don't you just admit to your alleged relationship with Katrina Kaif?
That's a heavy question. I have started becoming really afraid (of these questions). There is so much of conjecture and misunderstanding. What I say is misconstrued. I feel there is a time and place for everything.
And when is the right time?
When I am married, I want to give my family and my own self that dignity. Right now, I just want to focus on my work. I don't want to talk about any relationship - whether it's my brother, sister, girlfriend or friend.
But people continue talking and writing about your relationship because you aren't putting the speculations to rest.
I'm an actor, and am here to entertain people through my work. You can judge my movies, and say that I am a bad actor. But what I am in my real life, you can't assassinate that. I'm just trying to protect my personal life.
How have your parents reacted to your relationships?
This 'mama's boy' tag and stuff like my father has a problem or my mother has one... there is nothing like that. It's like The Bold And The Beautiful ... my life is perceived to be like a soap opera. That's not the truth. I have dated girls right from when I was in school, and I have always been open about it. There is nothing that is kept secret from my family. I don't think I am doing anything wrong, so why should I hide it? People should just stop bringing my parents in between my personal relationships and my life.
