By Hindustan Times

Ranbir Kapoor, who completed five years in Bollywood, rates his journey as wonderful.

Ranbir made his debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Saawariya in 2007. Though the film failed at the box office, it did not stop Ranbir, who went on to give power-packed performances in Wake Up Sid, Rocket Singh, Rajneeti and the recent Barfi.

"Today I have completed five years in the industry. Saawariya came and went in a day while Barfi ran for several days. The journey has been good and wonderful," Ranbir told reporters here. "I want to do more films and more exciting characters. I am looking forward to doing good work. It feels great to be here. I feel I have got lifetime achievement award," he added.

Ranbir launched DVD of Barfi, directed by Anurag Basu, and starring Priyanka Chopra and Ilena D'cruz along with him, here. The film has been sent as India's official entry for Oscars in the best foreign language film category.

"We are happy that the film has got nominated as India's entry to the Oscars. But this is just the first step. I hope the concerned committee selects our film or else we will send dada (Anurag Basu) there," he said, jokingly.
