I am burdened by 'the star son' tag: Ranbir
Mumbai: Ranbir Kapoor feels strained by the tag of 'star son' and wants to carve out his own identity which would make his parents feel proud of him.
Born in a family of cine-stars, Ranbir, the grandson of legendary Raj Kapoor and son of veteran actors Neetu and Rishi Kapoor, wants to create his own identity.
"I want people to recognise me by my work. I am burdened by this tag called 'the star son'. People say I got everything easily, yes, I got my first film easily because people were curious about me. After that I have worked hard, experienced things. It is important to make an identity of my own," Ranbir said.
"My parents feel very proud when somebody calls them Ranbir Kapoor's parents. Every father and mother wants that for their child. I hope that I make them proud and carry forward the legacy of my family in my own distinct way," he said.
Ranbir's father Rishi Kapoor has created a new image with his performances of Rauf Lala in 'Agneepath' remake, as Yoginder Vashisht in 'Student of the year', as an underworld don Goldman in 'D Day' and others.
"He has made me realise one thing that stars fade and actors always remain. This is his second career as a character actor. The biggest thing is to have excitement and passion even at this age," he said.
Ranbir shared screen space for the first time with his parents in 'Besharam' and found it intimidating to work with them, especially his father.
"I was very scared about how I will work with him (Rishi). I have never looked into my father's eyes till now. I had to call him 'mote', 'dharti pe bhoj', I was like how will I say that. He gave me courage and never made me feel uncomfortable. I am very scared of him. But on a film set he becomes the character," he said.
"He has always been my favourite actor and now I finally got a chance to work with him. I can finally tell my children that I have worked with your grandfather," Ranbir said.
