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.

  1. only Ranbir is responsible for his own downfall. Ranbir is a nice and gentle guy. kaafi tameez wala ladka hai Ranbir but Bhai se panga nahi lena chahiye tha.
    Bhai Fans will never gonna watch Ranbir’s movie chahe movie kitni bhi achi ho ya kharab ho.

  2. Anurag is not to be blamed. Ranbir is a fine actor. One of the best no dount but its about choosing the right movies. He faltered with Besharam, Tamasha, Bombay Velvet. Even Rockstar performed because of Ranbir Kapoor’s presence. Movie wise it was below average. At the other hand looks like for the time being he is not taking his career seriously. All news about Katrina and him. Delay of shoots for Jagga Jasos. Ranbir has himself to blame.

  3. If I were Kjo I would really really postpone Adhm. This type of movie requires a Valentines day or a solo good date. No disrespect but I have a feeling Ajay D movie will be a massive hit. If a whole Srk that’s a bigger brand then both Kjo+Ranbir can shift then why not team adhm. There is no shame in that plus having in mind Ajay D apart from being one of the biggest actors in the industry he has invested both time money patients brains to his Shivaay. With its just released song Shivaay is A already closed case in terms of box office logistics.

  4. ground breaking actor… but his few recent film iz not upto the mark scriptwise… Sanjay Dutt biopic will b his landmark film…
