Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap says he feels sad and responsible for the falling graph of Ranbir Kapoor, who was once at the top of the game in Bollywood.
Back in 2013, Ranbir Kapoor was on top of his game with back to back hits like Rockstar, Barfi and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. However he faced a major setback with Anurag’s brother Abhinav Kashyap’s Besharam failure. His career took a bigger beating when Anurag’s Bombay Velvet bombed at the box office.
“Both ‘Bombay Velvet’ and ‘Besharam’ affected me personally. All these things (downfall of Ranbir’s career) affected me as you take responsibility for the work you do. I feel responsible for that thing,” Anurag told PTI when asked about Ranbir’s fall.
“I think Ranbir is one of the finest actors and he was willing to experiment. We failed him collectively, a lot of us failed him,” he said. Though the two films bombed at the box office, it hasn’t changed personal equation between the director and the actor. “Yes we talk normally now also,” Anurag said.
When asked if there is any project lined up with Ranbir, the ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ director said currently there are no such plans. “He is committed to a lot of things like Raju Hirani’s film, ‘Jagga Jassos’ (with Anurag Basu), Ayan Mukherji’s film. He is busy for next two years,” he added.
