Ranbir Kapoor as Sanju and Rishi Kapoor
Ranbir Kapoor as Sanju and Rishi Kapoor

Ever since the teaser of Sanju released, we were waiting for the trailer to launch. While the wait was killing us, the makers had already showcased the trailer to Ranbir Kapoor’s parents Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh. A video of the couple reacting to the trailer had gone viral and Rishi was heard saying,

The way Rajkumar Hirani has presented Ranbir is the biggest Superb thing, the boy has really done well. I am so proud of him. I swear on Neetu and Ranbir, I did not think it was Ranbir, I thought it was Sanjay Dutt.

Today, Ranbir was present at the trailer launch and amongst other things he was asked about his reaction to the video that went viral.

An emotional Ranbir said,

Besides my father, he is also an actor I really admire and respect (him)… He never tells me on my face that I’ve done good work, not that I expect it either, but when you hear such words coming from him, it is incredible, it really moved me, made me emotional. Every father wants their son to do well, but my father is very careful that he won’t give compliments for free. He always tells us ‘kasar reh gayi hai, work harder.’ So this was a wonderful gift.

That was an equally heartwarming reply, Ranbir!
