Ranbir Kapoor willing to play a gay on screen


Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan has opened the door for playing homosexual character on-screen and now Ranbir Kapoor is willing to accept such controversial role. Fawad Khan has played a gay character in ‘Kapoor & Sons’.

The ‘Barfi’ actor spoke about his inhibitions in playing the role earlier. Asked if he would play a homosexual on camera, Ranbir said: "Sure, but now it's already been done. Now he's (Fawad has) opened the door and it's easy for us to walk through it. But earlier... I must honestly say I might have turned it down."

He is also willing to play a second lead in a movie, but conditions apply. He said: "Suppose tomorrow Rajkumar Hirani offers me the part of Circuit to the new Munnabhai. I would play it and try my best to do it justice."

Directing a film is something which interest Ranbir a lot but he said there is time to put on the director’s hat. "Look, I know how a film is made, but a director has to find the method to tell the story he has to tell. I'm not, because a) I'm lazy and b) acting is taking up my time and I don't have a story, I can't write," he said.

On the work front, Ranbir Kapoor is gearing up for the release of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’.
