Ranbir Kapoor’s recent films may have failed to do well at the box office but his rumoured girlfriend, actor Katrina Kaif says the ‘dedicated, passionate and focused’ actor is sure to bounce back.
Ranbir is going through a rough patch in his career as his last few films — Besharam, Roy and Bombay Velvet failed to grab eyeballs.
“His movies <g data-gr-id="52">not</g> doing well is a sad thing. But he gives his heart and soul for a film. I know it hurts and pains him deeply that maybe he is not able to live up to the expectations and satisfy his audience,” Katrina told a <g data-gr-id="50">media</g> person.
“He loves his audience... he wants people to love his films... he wants that acceptance from <g data-gr-id="44">audience</g>. So all this is hurtful to him,” she said.
The 32-year-old actor is hopeful that Ranbir will bounce back.
“But as an actor, I haven’t seen anyone more passionate and focused about his work. It is just a matter of time. Every actor goes through ups and downs. I am sure with his passion, dedication and God’s blessing, things will change,” she said.
Talking about her recently-released film Phantom, Katrina says she is happy with the audience’s response.
The actor is now excited for Nitya Mehra’s film with Sidharth Malhotra, for which she has started shooting. The film titled <g data-gr-id="46">Baar Baar</g> Dekho is a love story, which happens over a period of time.
“Nitya’s film is an amazing love story. It is an idea that shocked me when I first heard it. I have not seen or heard a film like this in <g data-gr-id="49">long</g> time,” she said.
“Most of the love stories are of similar types, but this seemed new and exciting. There is <g data-gr-id="48">lot</g> of performance in it,” she said. .
Katrina’s upcoming films include Jagga Jasoos and <g data-gr-id="72">Fitoor</g>.
