Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor had assisted Sanjay Leela Bhansali in Amitabh Bachchan and Rani Mukerji ‘Black’ starring Amitabh Bachchan and Rani Mukerji before making his big Bollywood debut with his film, ‘Saawariya’.
Going down memory lane when he assisted the filmmaker on the set, Ranbir revealed that the filmmaker treated him like any other assistant director and not as a star kid.
According to Ranbir, Bhansali would hit them, abuse them and he used to be kneeling for hours. However, the actor said all that has only hardened them and prepared them for the world.
Ranbir cited the example of the Ramleela director after Randhir Kapoor stated that the Raj Kapoor era of films is over, hinting at the fact that today the filmmakers are more concerned about the commercial aspect of films than creativity.
The Sanju actor was speaking at a panel discussion following the launch of the book ‘Raj Kapoor: The Master At Work’.
Let us tell you the film brings together Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt together on the silver screen for the first time.
For the unversed, Ranbir Kapoor along with Alia Bhatt and Ayan will unveil the motion poster of 'Brahmastra' today at Thyagraj Stadium Complex in New Delhi.
