Ranbir takes up direction

Two films old as well as quite young to handle direction, Ranbir Kapoor is all passionate to take up direction to revive his grandfather's R K Films' sinking banner that is known to produce many hit films in the past. "My plan got delayed, but now I’m working on it," Ranbir told daringly. "Things will fall into place very shortly. I'll star in the film and direct it. Is that too much responsibility?" Yes, it certainly is! "But I don’t think so," remarked Neetu and Rishi Kapoor’s son. "I’m passionate about being a director. I’ve lots to say. And I hope audiences accept me as a director as much as they have as an actor."

Ranbir does not mind comparing him with his father Rishi Kapoor who was touted as a Prince of Romance. Ranbir said, "I'm not making a conscious effort to walk in my father’s footsteps, though he’s my favorite actor and I don’t mind being compared with him. But I don't act or dance like him, I want to be myself on screen."

Along with direction, Ranbir Kapoor will also concentrate on the next project of Ayaan Mukherjee titled Wake Up Sid. He finds himself fortunate to work alongside with versatile actor Konkana Sen Sharma. He has Raj Kumar Santoshi, Shimit Amin and Prakash Jha's flick on hand.
