With only a few more days to go before the release of one of the most awaited films of 2013, Ranbir Kapoor has stated that Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is not meant to influence the youth in a negative way. The 30-year-old actor plays the lead character in this film, along with his ex-girlfriend Deepika Padukone. Ranbir mentioned the following to a leading Indian newspaper regarding the film and what its true intentions actually are. “I don’t see anything unethical about the movie. It is purely entertainment. We do not make any film to spoil the society. It is not meant to spoil the youngsters, but it is fully entertaining and is meant for them. The story is about four youngsters, their journey in life, their ambition, their first love and their first heartbreak.”
Ranbir also praised his co-star Deepika for “surrendering to her work brilliantly.” He also said that he had no problems working with his ex-girlfriend in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. “We work individually as actors. So Deepika and I had no problem working together.”
In general, Ranbir also spoke about how uncomfortable he once felt about being asked personal questions by the media. “I work very hard as an actor and I try roles so that my character entertains the public. I once felt awkward and bad with such questions (about my personal life). Now I have understood its part and parcel of our film industry.”
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani hits cinemas on Friday 31 May!
