Ranbir Kapoor is being so honest, it hurts. The Ae Dil Hai Mushkil actor who prefers to keep his distance from the media and has rarely spoken about his personal life, recently opened about Katrina Kaif but just about. However, in a recent interview to Vogue India, it appears nothing was off the table. The actor spoke about his “drinking problem” and his relationship with Katrina which he “doesn’t want to sell.”
In the candid interaction, the actor, who is all set for his upcoming performance in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, said: “It is a visual medium and I have to look after myself. I have seen it in my family, I have seen it go the wrong way, so I’m aware I have a drinking problem. When I shoot, when I work, I don’t drink. But when I’m not shooting…” For the record, the beverage of choice is a cold draught beer, though he’d “drink anything.”
The actor was in the limelight for his statement that after his parents, ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif has been the most influential entity in his life and how their relationship was punctured by many things. In the interview, he first mentions Katrina affectionately while describing the loony Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, “It had simple storytelling, it had heart, and I also fell in love during that film, with Katrina.” He went on to tell Vogue that the problem with having relationships written about is how often, and how conveniently, things are misconstrued. “Katrina, after my parents, has been the most inspiring and motivating factor in my life. Period. That is too dear to me and there is no explanation, there is nothing I can tell you about it. Nobody will understand it. And I don’t want to sell it.”
The actor opened up about his professional as well as personal life in this interview, which has appeared in Vogue India’s September 2016 issue.In the same interview, when asked if he would play a homosexual on camera, Ranbir said, “Sure, but now it’s already been done. Now he’s (Fawad has) opened the door and it’s easy for us to walk through it. But earlier… I must honestly say I might have turned it down.”
