Ranbir might be the blue-eyed boy of Bollywood and an heartthrob for millions of girls in India, but apparently not for Academy Award-winning Hollywood actor Natalie Portman.
In a recent interview to CNN News18, the Barfi! star said that he was once left “heartbroken” when he was asked to “get lost” by Natalie Portman.
“I’ve run behind Natalie Portman at Tribeca (Film Festival). She was on the phone and she was crying. I went quickly behind her and said, ‘I love your…’ Before I could say ‘work’, she turned and said, ‘Get lost!’ So I’ve had my heart broken but I would still chase them,” explained a candid Ranbir to Rajeev Masand.
The 33-year-old actor also talked about his experience meeting Kill Bill and Inglourious Basterds director Quentin Tarantino.
“So with Quentin Tarantino recently, he was promoting The Hateful Eight and we were shooting Ae Dil Hai Mushkil in London. I was shooting in a basement and he was in the building. I heard that he was doing an interview so I went running up. I told Karan, “Listen, I have to meet him.” Not that I’m going to say that I’m an actor from India. I just wanted to meet him, take a picture, an autograph,” said Ranbir.
After an hour of waiting, Quentin finally appeared but Ranbir’s eagerness to meet the master director ended up being a funny episode.
“I saw him coming and from far I’m saying, ‘Quentin, Quentin’,” said Ranbir, “He walks, looks at me, goes and sits in his car. When the door opens, I’m like, ‘Sir, picture picture?’ and they have it on video. It was really funny and I got teased by the entire crew of Ae Dil, but just to see Quentin Tarantino.”
Ranbir Kapoor will be next seen in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. The romantic drama also stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan and is scheduled to release on October 28 this year.
