Ranbir Kapoor recently opened up about many things- his equation with his girlfriend, Katrina Kaif, his thoughts on Deepika Padukone (more on that coming up) and not being a part of Dil Dhadakne Do. Obviously, I found this thoughts on Katrina the most interesting because they’re both rather guarded about their personal life. So, it was rather cute of Ranbir to open up about her as an actress, a co-star and a partner. Read what he has to say (this interview first appeared in DNA):
Katrina is actually a badmaash on set. She isn’t what she comes across as. She constantly needles you, constantly challenges you…. there is always a sense of takkar that she gives you. She inspires you. It’s wonderful working with her. She is not a pseudo-intellectual, she understands cinema and understands how it works from an outsider’s perspective, better than anyone I have met. The opinions of people close to me are important — my parents, Katrina, Ayan, the other directors I have worked with, like Anurag Basu, Imtiaz Ali and Anurag Kashyap. I am pretty close to Karan and my friend Rohit Dhawan. These people’s opinions matter because there is no sense of them being my ‘yes people’. They have a very strong opinion of good and bad, right and wrong and I value that. I will always value that. Katrina is my critic. Of course and vehemently. If she doesn’t like something, she’ll rub it in my face. If she likes something, she will just pass one snide comment. She is not good with compliments, she loves to criticize.
Haha! I think that’s adorable, honest girlfriends are the best girlfriends.
