I am acting because I love it, not for the money: Ranbir Kapoor


Ranbir Kapoor comes from a family that has been a part of Bollywood for many years. The actor says that he acts because it’s his passion, and he loves doing it. He also adds that money was never a reason why he got into acting.

In an interview, Ranbir said: “The place where I come from, money has never been a driving factor. I have had a luxurious childhood. I am acting because I love it. I am grateful that I am getting opportunities today.”

He also added that he has never taken his family for granted, even though he ‘s the son of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh, two of the finest actors during the 70’s and 80’s.

He said: “I don’t take it for granted. I don’t take my family name for granted. I know, if I have to make a name, I have to do it myself.”

“I can never rely on what my grandfather has done or my parents have done. Because nobody really remembers that and you will be remembered my the work you do,”
he added.

Ranbir made his debut in 2007 with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya which flopped at the Box office. However the actor came back with three powerful performances with Raajneeti, Rockstar and Barfi!, to prove his acting abilities.

Ranbir Kapoor admits he has never asked for any creative advice from his actor parents.

“My parents being actors, they have never forced down any opinions on me,”
said the actor.

“I have never gone to them for advice because they want me to take the credit of my own success and face my failures and that really makes you, who you are. That makes you more responsible and helps you grow,”
he added.

    Indians just love money. look at the state of the crappy country. they dont help each other and it’s all about wealth. poor kareena is married to a devil worshipper. he sold his soul . look at the name of his company. well that says it all. the actors think they are royalty.

    I hate it when any actors say that, just weeks before he demanded 70% of the movie profit, his charges are increasing every movie he does and still he aint doin it for money. what name?, all his family generations are actors so how hard was it for him to come into bollywood.. he’s never been to his family for advice.. give me a break.. his dad is always promoting and screaming for him like a girl.

        no, he’s right rishi took off deepika a world tour just cuz she said he should endorse a condom company (implying that he’s a cheating bastard , which we all know he is! She had his initials tattooed for god’s sake! thats a huge commitment and if a guy does that to you after that level of trust, you are basically asking to be degraded in public). Rishi does defend his son’s asshole behaviour and basically it sends a message that these egoistic assholes are a bunch of selected elitest group that want to obviously keep it in the family so real talent cant get in anymore .
