Have learnt from my failures, not successes; says Ranbir Kapoor



Ranbir kapoor

Mumbai, June 18: For Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor, failures have translated to more learning than his success stories.

In a rare question and answer session with fans on social media on Sunday, when a user asked him about how he deals with frustration and failures, Ranbir said: “I have only learned from my failures and not from my successes.”

And how does he celebrate success?

“By wiping the sweat off my forehead and muttering ‘bach gaye’ to myself,” said the actor, who has had a career of many hits and misses in Bollywood.

Having forayed into films with “Saawariya”, Ranbir featured in films like “Wake Up Sid”, “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani” and “Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year” before entering a new league with movies like “Rockstar”, “Barfi!” and “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani”.

“Bombay Velvet”, “Tamasha” and “Jagga Jasoos” are some of the films that didn’t work for Ranbir.

When a fan asked where does Ranbir see himself 10 years from now, the actor said: “I hope I can continue entertaining all of you for years to come.”

His forthcoming movie is “Sanju”, a biopic on actor Sanjay Dutt.

He says working in a biopic has been “terrifying and exciting at the same time”.

 Bollywood’s celebrity brigade emotional statements on Father’s Day 

Shah Rukh shared a photo of a card which read “You’re the best papa in the world”. He captioned it: “Notwithstanding that the kids had no other option and yeah I admit maybe there is just a hint of a bias here… This kinda completes a father’s life.”

Madhuri Dixit: Thank you for being there at every step of my life, Dad. You have always been my inspiration and a pillar of strength. You truly are the best. I miss you. I’m so grateful that my boys have an amazing father just like you. I wish a very Happy Father’s Day to all Super Dads out there.

Akshay Kumar: Help! It’s Father’s Day and the little one asks “Dad, can I have a pet?” My fatherly love taking over, “Of course Beta what would you like?” She, “Dad, can you get me a unicorn with wings”. Any suggestions?

Arjun Kapoor: My father has always thought a lot about others, how to help them, how to make things better for them, for his people, his friends, his family and his enemies even. In all these years, I have tried to make him realise it’s time to become selfish and think of yourself first but he’s a king, my father. He can never change his impulse to help and be there for others. Happy Father’s Day to the most selfless man I know. I’m proud to be your son.

Genelia Deshmukh: Happy Father’s Day Baba… Always going to hold your hand because that’s “our safe place” and that’s our strength.

Sonu Sood: Some bonds can’t be put in words. For me everyday is Father’s Day. Today I miss you more Papa. Life will never be the same without you.

Sunny Deol: Because of my father, we are what we are today. Love you Papa.

Rahul Dev: To all those committed fathers out there and their children, enjoy each other, celebrate life.

Raveena Tandon: Always Daddy’s girl. Great childhoods are made possible because of great dads (and moms). Am lucky for mine 🙂 Happy Father’s Dad! My Daddy Bestest.

Aditi Rao Hydari: Happy Father’s Day Baba…. so much left to do, to be said.

Vicky Kaushal: Happy Father’s Day Dad!

Celina Jaitly: This is our first Father’s Day without papa. It’s heartbreaking because even ma has gone. I pray for his soul, I pray he guides us, I pray for all those who have lost their beloved fathers… miss you daddy.

Gul Panag: Happy Father’s Day to the best father. He has always taught by example. He has set very high standards of integrity, honestly and propriety for Sherbir and me to follow. And fitness too! He is still the smartest, most well read man I’ve come across. A true role model.

Amruta Khanvilkar: Here’s to all the super heroes. Thank you for being there.

Jackky Bhagnani: My ‘bade miyan’ has always been by my side no matter what! Our father-son partnership has forever been the best. Whatever I’m today I owe to you, Papa! After all I am a chip off the old block. My daddy strongest.

Chitrangda Singh: We somehow always end up telling our mothers more than we do to our dad… For all the times it’s left unsaid, love you pa.
