Ranbir Kapoor will play a character named Pepsi, also the name of the cola brand he endorses, in Abhinav Kashyap’s film.
Ranbir Kapoor's name in Abhinav Kashyap's upcoming film is Pepsi. And the star even endorses a cola brand of the same name.
Interestingly, Ranbir has had amusing names in his past few projects. His character's name in Ayan Mukerji's upcoming movie Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is Bunny and in his last release, he was called Barfi.
Says a source, "Ranbir is okay with the idea of having such screen names. He is a director's actor. The audience relates to his screen names well. After Barfi, the audience used to call him by his screen name."
During a media interaction, when he was asked about his funny screen names he had quipped, "It depends on the director and the script writer completely. I have no say in it. I think it's just a coincidence that I get such names but I like them."
