Mumbai: Ranbir Kapoor is one actor in Bollywood who chooses to stay away from controversy. He isn’t active on any social media platforms, and tries his best to stay away from the eye of the paparazzi. According to recent reports, he has even decided to make limited appearances for his film promotions, to avoid uncomfortable personal questions.
According to a recent report in Mumbai Mirror the actor was over heard having a conversation with a friend. Ranbir recently read Albert Camus’ bestseller ‘The Outsider’ and was able to relate to the protagonist Mersault.
The actor was overheard saying, “I don't give a damn anymore. I identify with `The Outsider'. I think I am him. I could not put the book down and read it in six days straight. I also don't cry anymore. I cannot remember the last time I cried. I am hoping I get to play this character on the big screen since I identify with him.”
It would be very different to see this shade of Ranbir on screen. The actor has mostly portrayed happy-go-lucky characters onscreen. However he will be seen in a darker role in Anurag Kashyap’s thriller ‘Bombay Velvet’.
