Ranbir Kapoor is one of the most prolific actors in the Hindi film industry. Though he had a few duds in the recent past, he struck gold with director Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra: Part 1. The film, which was in the making for nearly six years, hit the theatres earlier this year and ended up as a hit venture. However, did you know Ranbir was a terrible actor when he was young? It took him a film course to realize his potential. At the Red Sea International Film Festival, Ranbir opened up about his initial days.
The actor said, “Growing up I was very introverted, I was terrible at school, never got selected at dramatics, and people thought I was a terrible actor. The only thing I was decent at was football. That gave me an identity while growing up. But when I reached film school, nobody knew I come from a film family."
Ranbir Kapoor learned acting at Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute and understood what he can bring to the table. He said, "I found myself there. My mom used to tell me all the time, ‘You are so shy, how will you become an actor, you have to be a people person, be out there.’ It is very hard for introverts to be something they are not. I found my space and growth in being the person I am, I didn’t have to change myself. I didn’t need to compromise in my thoughts to make it in life."
