Ranbir wants to pen Black experience with Sanjay Leela Bhansali

Ranbir wants to pen Black experience with Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Actor Ranbir Kapoor, who started his career as an assistant director to filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, says if he has to pen down a portion of his life, then it would be the time when he assisted Bhansali on the film Black.

He says that phase transformed him completely from an ‘aimless slacker boy to a worthy person’.

“I have not thought about it (writing a book) at all. I have miles to go before I can think of something like that,” the 32-year-old told reporters here at the launch of cover of Ronnie Screwvala’s book Dream With Your Eyes Open.

“But if I had to, then it would be the time when I assisted Bhansali (Sanjay Leela Bhansali) on Black, because that was the time I really switched from just being an aimless slacker boy to somebody who wants to do something in his life related to films,” he added.

Before foraying into acting with Bhansali’s directorial Saawariya (2007), Ranbir worked as an assistant director with Bhansali. Although the film didn’t work, however, Ranbir was noticed for his performance and he bagged Filmfare’s Best Male Debut Award.

Further, he praised the National Award winning director and said: “He was a great mentor, he was a great teacher, so to write something about that would be interesting.”

Meanwhile, Ranbir is awaiting the release of his film Bombay Velvet, directed by Anurag Kashyap. The film also features Anushka Sharma and film maker Karan Johar in a negative role.

Will marry only when i feel marriage is organic: Ranbir
At a recent event, when the question popped up yet again, the charming actor diplomatically said, “I haven’t decided when I’ll get married. I’ve always believed that marriage is something which should happen organically. I am not that kind of person who’ll say that ‘I’m 32 now. Let’s get married,’ or ‘Time is running out’. I’m very happy with my life right now. When I feel I want to have children or the day my partner and I feel that it’s an organic thing now to get married, is when I’ll marry.” On a professional note, the actor said that the biggest accomplishment of the year for him is the release of Bombay Velvet. “The release of the film will be like a dream come true for me this year,” he said.
