Ranbir: Learning Guitar for Rockstar

Actors learn many things to understand the characters. Ranbir Kapoor, who is currently busy in filming of Imtiaz Ali’s Rock Star, is also learning guitar to get into the character of the film. The actor says,

I love music and  my biggest disappointment was that I couldn’t play any instrument. So for Rock Star, I’m learning how to play a guitar because it’s easier to handle while singing. It’s not possible to play drums and sing but you can easily manage that with a guitar.”

The 27-year-old actor is also overjoyed after seeing his mother, Neetu Kapoor acting after 30 years of break. The actor saw Do Dooni Chaar, featuring mother, Neetu Kapoor and father, Rishi Kapoor. He says,

“It was so overwhelming. I have seen mom’s films before too, but seeing her on screen after three decades with his father was a different experience altogether.“I felt proud to be their son.”

When asked about him whether he convinced her to do the role of Mrs Duggal in director Habib Faisal’s debut film, the actor says,

“Mom was nervous but I reminded her of the fact that she’d been a top star and those who had loved her in the good old days would be happy to see her back. I also assured her that just like you never forget cycling once you learn it, you don’t forget acting.”
