Filmmaker Anurag Basu, who has directed films like ‘Barfi’, ‘Life In A Metro’ and ‘Gangster’, has said that he prefers to work with actors like Ranbir Kapoor because he is willing to take risks.
The director went on to add that there are not many actors like Ranbir, who unlike Salman Khan, doesn’t repeat himself by doing the same kind of films.
“I am glad there is an actor like Ranbir who is taking the risk. There are not many actors, who would do it. He is not like Salman who is doing same thing film after film. He is boring. How can you do that?. At least he (Ranbir) is experimenting with his craft, he is pushing the envelope, and he is taking the risks” Basu said.
While Ranbir’s films like ‘Bombay Velvet’, ‘Roy’ and ‘Besharam’ have failed at the box office, Basu said it’s better to get creative satisfaction by doing varied roles.
“It is not paying off but at least he is getting the satisfaction of doing those films. He is playing different characters, they are so different form each other. Very few actors do that”
“In India people blame actors for the failure of a film. But it is not up to them, it is the director. But still people blamed Ranbir.” he added.
