"I Am a Below-Average Person and An Average Actor" Ranbir Kapoor

Ranbir Kapoor has had his fare share of hits and misses as an actor. However, diving into the 11th year of his career, the Bollywood actor believes that his failures have taught him more. 

In an interview with Hindustan Times, Ranbir said that handling success is easy because everyone around you is only full of praises. “But failure teaches you a lot. It will slap you hard and you won’t even realise it,” he stated.

Speaking of his failures, he added,“be it your family, partner or friends — people who can keep you grounded and comfort you, besides giving you the confidence that it’s just a bend, and not the end.”

“I feel I am just an average actor and a below-average person, who just got great opportunities. Yes, I have confidence in myself that I can do something and that’s why I am successful. Otherwise, I am not saving the world,” Ranbir explained.

Discussing the expectations people have from him after the success of  Sanju, he said, “it’s always encouraging that people find that there’s a potential in you, but then you also have to deliver. The idea is to be a part of films, which make a large number of people happy but at the same time, I want to do it my way.”
