November 30th was no ordinary day for fans of Ranbir Kapoor. Fans from all over the world – India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, USA, Canada, UK, Peru, South Africa – all of them had assembled at his forum to get a chance to talk to the rising superstar for the very first time. The ‘RK Girls’ as we like to call them, were going insane. A million thoughts racing through their mind…‘Will he really come?’, ‘Is it really him? Or is this a fake Ranbir?’, ‘What will I ask him? I think I’m going to faint!’. The dashing young man was there on the dot at 11.30pm, answering his fans’ questions for an hour and a half. We present to you the first ever chat RKF had with Ranbir Kapoor!
He starts with a ‘Hello everybody.. So glad to be here.. i finally get a chance to talk to you guys… hope u all doing well…and then begin the questions!

Ranbir: Hey Shaguftah.. yes i would definately be doing a world tour.. but in 2009.. you usually need a good bank of songs to go on a world tour.. so hopefully the films i work in, have good songs..

Ranbir: Hey Nya.. Nope not dating anybody.. would love to take out sometime off work but really tied up now..
Saima: Hey ranbir! I read in a magazine that ur not a drinker. Is that true that ur not a sharaabi? Cuz the world nowadays is full of sharaabis and it’s nice to know there are some that aren’t especially in bollywood or even hollywood. So what’s the answer?
Ranbir: Hey Saima.. No i am not too fond of alcohol.. I more of a social drinker but nothing more then a beer..
Stacey: Hi Ranbir, I thought you were brilliant in Saawariya and look forward to seeing you in your next films. My questions to you – what is your favorite candy? And also what is the hardest thing about being an actor?
Ranbir: Hey Stacey.. I’m not a candy guy.. but my fav deserts are creme brulee` and mishti doi.. and the hardest thing about being an actor is not to be 1 but be yourself.. my father told me once – acting is about putting in so much effort that it should come across effortlessly.. otherwise you are in TROUBLE
Sarah: Heyyy Ranbir , My questions to ya are 1. What kind of movies u would love to direct one day ? 2. What kind of movies u would like to do in the future with Sonam? Romance , Comedy …etc Thanks
Ranbir: Hey Sarah… There is not 1 particular genre.. would like to make all kinds of cinema… but i guess LOVE should always be the underlying central theme… Sonam is gonna be busy with Delhi 6.. but i’m sure we’ll come across an interesting script for the both if us.. soon hopefully 🙂
Oummah: Ranbir Kapoor!! OMG..I can’t actually believe I’m about to speak to you!! Hope you come to the UK one day!! I want to meet you!! Get your autograph, maybe a couple of snaps.. hehe. Ok, my question to you is – I read that your working on your own script for RK films, what’s the genre going to be of the film? Will you be in it yourself?
Ranbir: Hey Oummah.. I travel to London twice a year every year.. so i hope i bump into you sometime.. yes the movie i’m gonna direct, will star me.. the other actors are too expensive so i might as well take myself 🙂
lehalua07: Hey Ranbir !!!!! Congrats on ur success…I wanted to ask you is it really true what Sonam said about u on ibn that u don’t like to go out that much? I was wondering then generally how do u spend time with your friends? I hope its not too personal. And how important is it to maintain friendships in ur life? Thanks a lot and I must say like everyone else here u r simply brilliant ….byeeee
Ranbir: Hey lehalua07… I’m too much of a homebody.. so i like spending time at home with family.. with my dogs.. got 2 of them… dudley and pugley.. both are pugs.. i watch a lot of movies at home.. play some xbox.. try and write( though i suck at writing).. i’m quite an introvert so its usually hard for me to make friends.. my friends have been with me since nursery.. they havent changed.. and i love them to death..
Sanam: ONE QUESTION SUM OF US WERE WONDERING: are you kool with girls showing up outside your house to meet you?? Probably not right, since its an invasion of privacy and all, am I right?
Ranbir: Hey Sanam. yes you can come and meet me anytime at my place.. i’m not usually home nowadays cuz i’m busy shooting and pack up pretty late and i wouldn’t want like any girl to come so late.. but should be relatively free by end dec.. so we shall meet then 🙂
Ran-Vid: Ranbir, have you ever imagined that you had fans in Peru? Like me? And what’s your favorite dessert? =)
Ranbir: Peru??? wow.. thats amazing.. thank you.. and my fav desert is creme brulee` and mishti doi(its a bengali desert and i strongly advise you to try it ) 🙂
Somya: Hi Ranbir do you come on this fan club often and do you really read our posts here?

dppatel2: Can i help you write bir, i have good imagination?
Ranbir: Yes dppatel2.. please help!!!
Laveen: Hey Ranbir! I want to ask you if you think a director from the Indian film industry would agree to let someone assist them, who does not have a film background? I don’t know anyone from the film industry, living in Canada, and I haven’t gone to film school as I can’t afford it. The only experience I have is from high school drama. I know this might be a stupid question, but I would really appreciate it if you could answer it. Thanks, lots of love and luck for the future!
Ranbir: Hey Laveen.. My honest advise to you is to assist a filmmaker.. somebody who;s work you admire.. cuz i promise you, it will teach you more then any film or acting school can teach you… all you have to do is come to Mumbai, go to the office of director, and speak to the assistant director and i;m sure it will all work out.. all my best wishes to you.. i’m sure it will all work out 🙂
Kaya: Heyy cutie, may i ask wat kind of stuff do u look for in a gal..reply if possible..
Ranbir: Hey Kaya…i really dont have a type.. nor am i looking for love.. i guess you just have to connect to a person and thats the most important thing.. whatever makes you happy..
Sunehri: How would you describe your relationship with Sona? Is there any chance you might hook up in the future?
Ranbir: Hey Sunehri.. Sonam is an amazing person… we share a great relationship but we aren’t seeing each other.. I hope she falls in love with a great guy who will keep her happy..
Sara: Welcome to RKF!!! Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by here, means alot to all of us. My Questions 1) Your favourite movie so far this year? (other than saawariya) 2) One film that you thought was absolutely horrible?
Ranbir: Hey Sara.. My fav movie this year has been Jab we met.. really sweet romantic comedy.. Chak De India was good too..I hated Jhoom Barabar Jhoon and Aag..
Ishita: Girl of simplicity OR girl from the film industry?????
Ranbir: Hey Ishita.. like i said, it really doesnt matter.. simplicity, from the industry or anything..being in love is a wonderful feeling and its beyond everything…
dppatel2: Who is your fav. hollywood actor and actress?
