"I've really not mastered the courage"
Ranbir Kapoor recently revealed that Luv Ranjan’s next rom-com film might be his last in this genre as he is “getting old”.
He said this during an interaction at the Red Sea International Film Festival.
The Besharam actor spoke about his upcoming untitled romantic comedy film along with Shraddha Kapoor.
He said: “I don’t know it is probably going to be one of the last romantic comedies I do because I am getting older.”
However, fans have disagreed with Ranbir’s “getting older” comment and stated that he is only getting younger.
Directed by Luv Ranjan, the film is set to release in theatres on March 8, 2023.
Ranbir has worked in numerous romantic comedy films like Ajab Jab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani and Jagga Jasoo.
The actor discussed several topics, including his personal and professional life during the interaction.
He also spoke to Deadline and revealed that his long-term career goal is to move behind the camera.
He said: “I’ve always wanted to direct and make a movie. But I’ve really not mastered the courage to write a story.”
Ranbir added: “I’ve always waited for a story to come to me naturally.
“But the f*** up is that I’m not a writer, and I’m really shy when it comes to sharing my ideas with other people.
“But I’m working on it, and it’s something that is in my ten-year plan: To start directing movies and hopefully act in them too.”

On the work front, Ranbir will be seen in director Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s upcoming gangster drama film Animal along with Anil Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, and Bobby Deol.
The actor also spoke about his personal life, including his newborn daughter Raha, his life after becoming a father, and his plans.
When Ranbir was asked about Alia Bhatt and juggling between work and parent duties, he spoke about dividing duties with his better half.
The Shamshera actor said that he does not work a lot.
He said he works only about 180-200 days a year and added that Alia does a lot more work and is busier but he knows that they will balance it out.
Ranbir further said:
“Maybe I’ll take a break when she’s working, or she can, when I am out for work.”
Meanwhile, in a video from the festival shared by Brut India, the 40-year-old actor can be seen talking about his “biggest insecurity.”
Ranbir said: “I’m wondering why did I take so long.
“My biggest insecurity is that when my children are 20 or 21, I will be 60 years old.
“Will I be able to play football with them? Will I be able to run with them?”
