"I don’t think cinema sees boundaries."

Ranbir Kapoor has clarified his statement that he would ‘love to’ work in a Pakistani film.

According to reports, Ranbir spoke about it at a recent promotional event for his upcoming film Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar on February 25, 2023.

Ranbir said that his statement was ‘misconstrued’ and added that he ‘didn’t want it to be controversial in any way’.

In December last year, Ranbir attended the Red Sea International Film Festival.

He was also part of a panel and was asked by a Pakistani filmmaker if he was open to acting in a production if it was set elsewhere.

To this, Ranbir had said: “Of course, sir. I think there are no boundaries for artists, especially for arts… Of course, I would love to.”

Now, he has clarified this and said: “I think yeh thoda mera statement misconstrue ho gaya tha. (I think my statement was misconstrued).

“I had gone to a film festival and there were a lot of Pakistani filmmakers asking me this question, ‘If you’ve got a good subject would you do it?’

“So, I didn’t want it to be controversial in any way.

“I don’t think itni bhi badi controversy hui. (It was not a big controversy)

“But, for me, films are films, art is art. I have worked with Fawad (Khan) in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

“I have known a lot of artists from Pakistan. Rahat (Fateh Ali Khan) and Atif Aslam are such great singers who used to contribute to Hindi cinema.

“So, cinema is cinema. I don’t think cinema sees boundaries.

“But, of course, you have to respect art but at the same time, art is not bigger than your country.

“So, anybody who is not on good terms with your country, your first priority will always be your country.”

On the work front, Ranbir will be next seen in Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar alongside Shraddha Kapoor and comedian Anubhav Singh Bassi.

Directed by Luv Ranjan, the film marks the first on-screen collaboration between Ranbir and Shraddha.

The film is produced by Luv Films’ Luv Ranjan and Ankur Garg and presented by T-Series’ Gulshan Kumar and Bhushan Kumar.

Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar will release in theatres on March 8.

Ranbir Kapoor also has Animal in the pipeline alongside Rashmika Mandanna.

The film, which also features Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, and Tripti Dimri, is directed by Sandeep Reddy Bhanga.
