Actor Ranbir Kapoor says that had Pakistani actor Fawad Khan not “opened the door” by playing a homosexual character in ‘Kapoor & Sons’, he would have perhaps turned down an offer to play a gay on screen. But now the ‘Barfi!’ star is receptive to the idea. The actor opened up about his professional as well as personal life in an interview taken by director Raja Sen for Vogue India’s September 2016 issue, which is available on the stands from September 3.
Ranbir lauds his contempories for taking up risky roles — be it Alia Bhatt in ‘Udta Punjab’ and Fawad in ‘Kapoor & Sons’. Asked if he would play a homosexual on camera, Ranbir said: “Sure, but now it’s already been done. Now he’s (Fawad has) opened the door and it’s easy for us to walk through it. But earlier… I must honestly say I might have turned it down.”
