Actor Ranbir Kapoor, who got an opportunity to dance alongside dancing diva Madhuri Dixit in a special song in his upcoming movie ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, said that his heart beats only and only for Madhuri Dixit.
Ranbir Kapoor also denied the various linkups with his co-stars over the years and said that he considers his co-stars as ‘good friends’ and nothing more.
“They (my co-stars) are my friends. I work with them in films and perhaps that’s the reason why people keep talking about us. My heart only beats for one woman and her name is Madhuri Dixit. Through this film, my childhood dream of dancing with her is fulfilled. I feel very lucky to work with her,” said Ranbir Kapoor to PTI while promoting his movie.
Ranbir Kapoor, who shares screen space with Madhuri Dixit in an item song ‘Ghagra’, revealed that it was he who suggested adding the kissing scene to director Ayan Mukerji.
“I do not know if I would get such a chance in life again or not. The kissing scene took four retakes and must say that I have not done these retakes intentionally," he added.
Ranbir Kapoor stated that Madhuri Dixit was his ‘dream girl’.
“When she comes on the screen, light spreads in all the directions,” he said.
Ranbir Kapoor said that he always wants to portray new characters on screens and doesn’t like to repeat any of his old characters.
“I want to play new characters now. My wish is to work in action, thriller-suspense and period films," he said.
Asked if he would like to reprise any of the character played by his father Rishi Kapoor in his films, Ranbir said, "I am a big fan of my father because he is a fine actor. But I don't feel repeating any of his characters. I would not be able to do justice to them."
Directed by Ayan Mukerji ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ also stars Deepika Padukone, Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin.
Produced by Karan Johar, the movie is all set to release on May 31.
