MUMBAI:Actor Ranbir Kapoor, who isn’t on any social media platform unlike other actors of his generation, says he is fine with being away from it.
Ranbir was interacting with media at the trailer launch of “Sanju” along with co-stars Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza and Vicky Kaushal, director Raj Kumar Hirani and producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra here on Wednesday.
Asked whether his availability on social media would have got extra mileage for his film, he said: “I don’t think so. On social media, I will be showing myself and not really what the film is.
“I agree that through social media, you have a reach to the larger audience but I don’t miss it and I am fine being away from it. Never say never, may be tomorrow, I will come but right now, I am happy being away from it.”
Ranbir, who has gone nude for one scene in “Sanju” when he is being interrogated by police, asked if was intimidated while shooting that scene, said: “I went nude in my first film (“Saawariya”) itself when my towel dropped. I am very shy in my real life but when the cameras are on, I am not shy as I am portraying a character so you have to be nude in your emotions and physically.”
“Sanju” is based on the life of Sanjay Dutt. The cast includes Anushka Sharma, Dia, Sonam, Manisha, Paresh Rawal, Jim Sarbh, Vicky, Boman Irani, and Karishma Tanna. The film is set to be released on June 29.
