With Besharam releasing next week, Ranbir Kapoor is doing the media rounds to promote his film. The actor will be on tonight’s episode of The Front Row, a special one perhaps since it’s airing on the eve of his birthday. During her chat, Anupama Chopra brought up the topic everyone wants to know more about: Ranbir and Katrina Kaif‘s beach photo leaks. Be sure to catch the episode tonight for the full conversation, but in the meantime, here’s an excerpt of what Ranbir has to say!
Anupama Chopra: The whole brouhaha about paparazzi pictures of you and Katrina Kaif also drew an extremely sorted response from you. You said, “Tabloids and news channels writing about you only builds your stardom and propels you to reach wider spaces.” Are you truly so evolved? It didn’t make you angry?
Ranbir Kapoor: I can’t afford to get angry, I am a public figure. I’ll try to protect my personal life how much ever I can, but if somebody clicks a picture of mine and puts it out there, I don’t have the right to it, I don’t own it. If people want to click a picture of mine or people want to take my autograph, it makes me happy. Yes, when in my personal space, when something like that comes up, it does hurt you, but I can’t really point a finger at anybody. So it’s catch-22, you try and protect your personal life as much as you can and speak less about it because even if I express myself about this topic, people will have 300 different point of views and misconstrue want I’m trying to say. It’s fine, I don’t have a problem if people have things to say about me, I don’t need to clarify them.
