Ranbir Kapoor heartbroken after 'Bombay Velvet' debacle


Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor had tasted success working in versatile films like ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’, ‘Rocket Singh: salesman of the year’, ‘Rajneeti’ ‘Barfi’ and ‘Rockstar’ among others. He has established himself as one of the most sought after actors in the industry since his debut in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Saawariya’ opposite debutant Sonam Kapoor in 2007.

However, in the past two years his films ‘Besharam’ and ‘Roy’ did not do well and even his latest release ‘Bombay Velvet’, hyped for his grandiose, could not earn him much appreciation.

The 32-year-old actor admitted that he was feeling ‘insecure’ regarding his career.

“There is a sense of insecurity that is starting to trend inside me. I am feeling a sense of friction where I really don’t know what is happening with my career. I know what is happening with my work but I don’t know what is going to happen with my career,” Ranbir told a television channel.

Year 2015 did not start on a good note for the Kapoor lad as his first film this year ‘Roy’ which released in February 13 pushed him to the back burner focusing on Jacqueline Fernandez and Arjun Rampal, while ‘Bombay Velvet’ saw him playing second fiddle to Karan Johar.

Aspirations were riding high for 'Bombay Velvet' which was expected to mark itself in the 100 crore league but it could only gather Rs.20 crore in the first week.

However, a few box office duds cannot undermine a person’s talent and the Kapoor scion has already proved his versatility as an actor.

The director with 100 per cent success rate Rajkumar Hirani next venture which is a biopic of actor Sanjay Dutt will cast Ranbir in the lead role.

Ranbir’s upcoming film ‘Tamasha’ is directed by Imtiaz Ali who directed him in ‘Rockstar’. ‘Tamasha’ will see him recreating the ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’ magic with his ex-flame Deepika Padukone who is cast opposite him.

He is also doing another film ‘Jagga Jasoos’ with his lady love Katrina Kaif. Both the actors are living together in a Juhu apartment and grapevine has it that they are getting married soon.
