Ranbir on Casual relationships


By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, May 2 -- Most of media coverage, if you haven't noticed already, focuses on Ranbir Kapoor being a womaniser, rather than the films he's working on. Ranbir himself has evidently noticed this.

Speaking to GQ, the actor says, "Right now, it's like I'm being linked left, right and centre. I open the paper and I'm actually dreading it. Jesus Christ, you know? I'm 28 years old, I work hard, I'm fairly successful at my job and I'm attracted to women."

Ranbir adds he doesn't find it difficult to work with ex-girlfriend Deepika, but agrees that things got awkward post the episode on Koffee With Karan: "With Deepika, it was just kind of strange, because after she gave certain interviews post our break-up or, you know, that episode on Koffee With Karan, it got really awkward. Deepika must have some angst against me, which she probably took out through that interview. But I still respect her, I still like her, I still feel she's a really nice girl. Sonam, I really have nothing to say about, because she was just my co-star and I think she said a few things, which she really didn't need to."

Asked about relationships and physical compatibility, the Kapoor scion says, "I don't believe in casual relationships. I don't believe in one-night stands. But I'm not really looking to date someone also, because actors' lives are so lonely. You always need someone who's there and you could talk to, and share your day with, good or bad. I've realised it is really hard for an actor to date an actress. There is so much insecurity. You could be dating an actor, and then be linked to another actor, because you're working on a movie with them. There is also a sense of competition about what the other actor is doing if you are dating them."

Ranbir insists he doesn't feel the pressure of his own ambitions. He admits, "Today, I have the power to actually green-light a project which everyone has said no to. I don't feel pressurised because I'm a bit arrogant where my career and talent are concerned. Because I know I'm going to be the best there is."
