RKF Exclusive: Second Innings with RK

8 years ago by in Interviews Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , ,

It finally happened again after 34 long weeks! Ranbir Kapoor was back to chat with his fans on RKF on July 25th/26th, 2008 (depending on where you are). The forum was buzzing with activity with more than 80 new members joining post the announcement of the chat. When the man of the moment logged on at 2:15am IST, heartbeats stopped and sugar levels dropped. Ranbir started off by apologizing for being late and was then fired with questions left, right and centre!Bringing to you RKF’s second innings with this sizzling hottie!

Sanam: I’ve read you had originally sung the title BAH track, why didn’t they keep it on the album? I want to hear songs in your lovely voice!! Also, will you be speaking Punjabi in BAH? How fluently can you speak Punjabi in real life? Lastly, Please tell us truthfully, in a fair amount of detail, what you are wearing this very minute, as you chat with us. We need to confirm the accuracy of our visions! G’luck for BAH!! (Even though its going to be a hit!!) Fingers crossed for best actor awards! Love you loads!!

Ranbir: Hey Sanam… How are you doing.. thank you so much.. Yes i did try singing the bah track but honestly i’m quite conscious of my voice and i do believe im a terrible singer so i got out of it… but will sing for you once i meet you… (soon hopefully)….Not really spoken too much punjabi… but the film has a strong essence of punjab… i understand it but dont speak it….Im in my boxers and a tshirt which says :I: lazy

Faezah: Firstly, congratulations on all the awards u received……u truly deserve it……Ranbir i really want 2 see u perform live, why dont u perform in awards shows??? Will u perform next time???

Ranbir: Hey Faezah… Thank you… i always believe that when you perform something on stage in front of the industry, you need the people of the film to be there to celebrate with you… since Saawariya was not particularly recognized at any award ceremony, i decided not to perform.. I”ll surely perform to something next year… 🙂

Prathna: Hey Ranbir, they say they way to a man’s heart goes through his stomach so I am sure all your dedicated fans including me would love to know what is your favourite dish? Hope you had a great stay in Australia and when you return be sure to visit Cairns…Good luck for BAH!

Ranbir:Hey Prathna…I’m a huge foodie.. like all kinds of food.. but favorite is regular home made food i eat everyday… dal, mutton/chicken/fish, paratha’s and some vegetable….Hope you like BAH… worked hard on it… its turned out to be a sweet quintessential romantic date flick.. entertainment to the fullest… 🙂

Sara: Hiiii Ranbir, Sara here. BAH is looking to be a fun movie so all my best wishes for it and all your future projects, hope success and happiness greets you every step of the way. There seems to be a good variety in your future projects. Has it been a conscious decision to only select a variety or would you say you have been lucky with the offers coming at you?

Ranbir: Hey Sara.. Thank you….Yes i’m trying to work and do as many films as i can… really a lot of interesting scripts and filmmakers out there… as of now the films i have signed on are Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani, Wake up Sid, Rocket Singh, Rajniti and hopefully will lock another interesting project soon…

Anab: Hey!!!!…salaamm ….Its ANAB….. I liked you crazily cuz you looked like to the one I love….i see him in you…My half skool knowz dat im CRAZY about youI just wanted to share this with you…my question to you is…How your dream girl will look like??? Like what type of eye…hair…….skin colour specially…..height….wat ever u like…

Ranbir: Hey Anab… Thank you for your kind words… I dont have a dream girl… in particular.. but hopefully will get married to the girl of my dreams 🙂

Shaima: Hey Ranbir! Do you like cinemas from other countries (except hollywood) and if yes which one is your favourite and do you have an actor/director in mind that you like particularly?

Ranbir: Hey Shaima.. I’m an avid cinema lover.. a world cinema lover.. and love watching all kinds of movies… the language doesnt matter..

Hristina: Hi, Ranbir! This is Hristina from Bulgaria. I’m big fan of you. Well, if you and not the director Siddharth Anand had to choose with who to be in the end of the film, who would you choose – Mahi, Radhika or Gayatri? I want to tell you that in Bulgaria you have many fans. Regards from all of us.

Ranbir: Hey Hristina.. would love to visit Bulgaria sometime.. heard so much about it.. going to push 1 of my producers to shoot there.. Who do i end up in the film with? not going to tell you that… i hope the movie works for as a journey of a guy and feel for him as much as i felt performing him…love always 🙂

Nur: Hey Ranbir! Nur here from Singapore! I have a few qns for u, what do u think is the USP of yr next release, Bachna Ae Haseeno? When are u coming to Singapore agn? Hehe I know u dropped by here for a while early this yr 😉

Ranbir: Hey Nur.. I love singapore and spent my last new years eve there… The usp of Bah is its story, the 3 amazingly talented beautiful haseeno’s and the music..

Robina: Hi Ranbir!!!! My question is i’ve read that you’re an introvert do u think that might be at a disadvantage in the movie industry with all the media attention?

Ranbir: Hey robina.. Yes i am an introvert but something happens to me when the director says action.. i love the time i spend between the 2 magical words action and cut… Its truly an amazing feeling.. and i pray i feel like this all my life..:)

Jyoti: Hi Ranbir!, How are you doing? I don’t wanna bug you with too many questions my mind is a bit empty right now, but I just wanted to say what a big fan I am!! I wish you all the luck in personal and professional life!! Love, Jyoti.

Ranbir: Hey Jyoti.. thank you so much.. I hope you see BAH and enjoy the cinematic experience 🙂 If you like see it a dozen of times 🙂

Ranbir:Thank you Neha.. Really sweet of you for your love and support.. i hope i dont let you down… 🙂

Ashyk: Just wanted to ask if there was any chance you will work with sonam again???? I loved your chemistry with her in saawariya….. have u had any more offers to work with sonam???

Ranbir: Hey Ashyk.. Yes i’m looking forward to work with Sona again.. I adore her and think she is 1 of the most talented actresses out there.. we have been offered a couple of movies together but still are waiting for something special to come along… 🙂

Senali: My question is because you have experience as an Bollywood actor what advise would you give to a person who dream of a career in Bollywood as an Actor/Actress.God Bless You Ranbir… : waiting impatiently for BAH…

Ranbir: Hello Senali.. All i say is dream big… because i really believe in this thing i read on a tshirt i bought.. “something somewhere incredible is waiting to be known” – chase it.. and you will achieve happiness and peace of mind.. 🙂

Pari: How much have you changed from July 2007 to July 2008 and how much has life changed overall? Dont get scared of the long list of questions coming your way, I think everyone wants to have a little bit of RK that they can call their own through this chat 🙂

Ranbir: Not changed much Pari.. I still am humbled by all the support on this incredible forum.. i truly am indebted to all you guys.. i wish i can meet all of you and give a big hug and thank you all personally… inshallah we shall meet at some point in our lives 🙂

Deepika: Hey Ranbir, this is Deepika from Lucknow, India… my questions are: how do u feel after bagging all best new comer trophies? how does it feel to work in an yash raj movie? what would u like to do to carry the RK films legacy forward? how do u find yourself in BAH’s promos? Hehe

Ranbir:Hey Deepika… It really feels great that your hard work is recognized and appreciated… beyond a banner i think what excites and matters most to me is the script and the character… which attracted me most towards BAH…. Yes i respect where i come from and understand my roots.. i need to do something special for my banner and i promise i wont let you down with the film i direct/act/produce for RK films 🙂 I loose objectivity when i see myself on screen.. when you work in a film, its so dear to you that you become numb towards the end of it.. i really hope you guys like the film… 🙂

Chandni: Hey Ranbir. This is Chandni (the other Chandni!) I have some questions for you hoping you can answer them. -What is the worst criticism you ever received? -Who is your fave co-star? (Sonam, Deepika, Minisha, Bipasha) -Are we going to have a surprise ending in BAH? -Which is our favorite song from Saawariya and BAH? -Which actor do you think is your toughest competition? -Who is your favorite actor and actress from the contemporary generation?? -Would you work with older actresses (like Aishwariya, Kajol, Rani, Preiy etc) and is how would that be different from working with contemporary actresses? -Where do you see yourself 5 years from now? -Would you ever work on television as an anchor or host of some kind of a show? -Are you going to work with your cousin Kareena anytime soon?? I would love to see the brother-sister jodi soon. And also to see you with your Dad and Mum!

Ranbir: Hey Chandni(other Chandni 🙂 ) I dont think criticism is bad.. I enjoy hearing my disadvantages, negatives and faults.. in a constructive way though… Sona will always be my fav costar cuz we started our journey together… Surprise ending in BAH – I hope so :)….Ahista Ahista and Jogi Mahi are my Fav from BAH.. Everybody from Amitabh Bachchan to Darsheel safary is competition to me :)… I enjoy performances rather than having a favorite.. but my all time fav actors are Rishi Kapoor and Kajol..I would love to work with all these great talents..I can only answer this question after i have worked with them.. 5 years from now – Back here on RKF chatting with and hopefully still have you as a fan of mine… 🙂 TV anchor – Haha.. no i dont think so.. i need to make a place for myself in indian cinema first… Would love to work with everybody from my family.. nothing planned yet.. how bout a movie with everybody in it?

Cocoa: Hello Ranbir! Well I just wanted to start off by saying that you’re an awesome and a fabulous actor and I hope you go on to become something more prominent of a MEGA STAR! I just wanted to ask you, now tht you’ve worked with 4 beautiful, ladies of the industry- Sonam, Deepika, Bipasha and Minisha – whom did you felt more comfortable working with and whom did you thought you shared the best chemistry with? We heart you Ranbir.

Ranbir: Hey Cocoa.. Thank you 🙂 i’m too new to realize who i share best onscreen chemistry with… but so far i have enjoyed working with all the my leading ladies.. Zohra Sehgal (lilypop) included… 🙂 I heart you too cocoa

I am glad you signed your next movie with Konkona Sen Sharma…she is great actress. Wishing you luck for BAH and good health and love.
