Ranbir Kapoor would have been a director if he had failed as an actor

ranbirmainActor Ranbir Kapoor might be a star now, but the son of actor Rishi Kapoor and actress Neetu Singh says that before joining the Hindi film industry, he knew that if acting didn’t work out for him, he would have tried his hand at filmmaking.

In an interview on TV show Yeh Hai Meri Kahani, he discussed various aspects of his life, beginning with the pressure of coming from an illustrious film family, his education, which was a big deal for his family, and and his decision to learn and study acting and more.

“If I failed as an actor, I will take up direction or produce films but I will do something around the film industry. This is when I told my father that I would want to go to an acting institute and train myself,” the Barfi! star said in a statement.

He learnt acting from the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York.

The interview will be aired Saturday, April 12 on UTV Stars.
