Ranbir Kapoor is reportedly dating Katrina Kaif.
Actor Ranbir Kapoor says Katrina
Kaif holds a special place in his life but he does not want to
end the mystery by talking about it in media.
After the photographs showing Ranbir holidaying with
Katrina went viral, the actor is no more in denial mode.
"There is so much being said about my personal life. I
don't want my life to become a reality show. Yes, Katrina is a
very special part of my life," Ranbir said.
The actor, who previously dated Deepika Padukone, said he
has learnt from his experience to not talk about his personal
"... when you are going to marry someone, of course I
would love the world to know about the person I love," he
The actor feels that there is a lot of judgement in the
country about women and their relationships.
"I think you have to protect that. I will try and protect
the mystery of what I have in my personal life," he said.
Ranbir has no problems with what is being said and
written about him as he feels that's the part and parcel of
"You can write anything about me... I may feel bad or
good about it as you (media) have created me. I am a media
created star. I can't have an opinion now. If I say something
there will be 20 different articles and point of views which
will again bring negativity in my life. As of now I am happy
in my life professionally and personally," he said.
Reacting to the recent photos of him and Katrina, Ranbir
said has no issues with those being published.
"I am actor and when I was growing up I had a favourite
actor. I also liked reading about their lives. As an actor you
have to be prepared (for it)," he pointed out.
Earlier, Ranbir felt a lot was being said about him and
Deepika and now he has learnt to guard his personal life as
that takes away from the work he does.
"When I was in a relationship earlier I spoke about it
freely, so the spotlight went away from my work. All I want to
say is I don't want my life to be a reality show. I have
decided to take it this way," he said.
Ranbir said he can't stop people from talking about his
personal life, but he wants to maintain a sanctity of it.
The actor has also refuted reports of getting engaged
to Katrina on his birthday - September 28.
"There was a report that I am getting engaged on my
birthday but there is no truth in that. This is another
rumour," he said.
When asked how he is planning to celebrate his birthday,
he said, "I hate celebrating my birthday. I feel there is so
much of pressure that if it is your birthday so it has to be
special. I go for dinner with my parents and friends come
home, next day I am on film set. This year I am on a film
set so probably I will cut the cake with media people. Last
year I was promoting a film."
On work front, Ranbir has interesting projects like
Abhinav Kashyap's Besharam, Anurag Kashyap's Bombay
Velvet, Jagga Jasoos with Anurag Basu and a film with
Imtiaz Ali and Ayan Mukerji.
