Rajeev Masand‘s interview with Ranbir Kapoor is one of the most honest, open and interesting profile we’ve read of the actor in a long, long time. Ranbir, who is known to be guarded was as candid as he could be, and he said some wonderful things about Katrina Kaif and his metamorphosis as an actor. But there’s one nugget of information which completely blew our minds – Ranbir was asked to audition for Star Wars which he refused! Here’s what he said –
Rajeev: Seeing Priyanka (Chopra) and Deepika (Padukone) trying to make a career in Hollywood; does that interest you?
Ranbir: No. I was asked to audition as the second lead in Star Wars a couple of years back. I have a fear of auditioning.
Rajeev: Does that come from arrogance?
Ranbir: Must be, but also insecurity that what if I get rejected? It’s more a fear from not having that much faith in my talent. But it doesn’t interest me. What Ayan Mukherjee is making interests me more than Star Wars. Let’s make our own Star Wars. Let’s not chase what’s there. That’s great but I have an opportunity here and I don’t think Ayan is less than a JJ Abrams or a George Lucas. Let me work with him and make our own Star Wars.
HE REFUSED TO AUDITION FOR STAR WARS! OMG!
But we’re sure Ayan and Ranbir’s Dragon will be kickass.
