Ranbir Kapoor tasted success at Box Office after trying too hard for around five long years. The actor’s last release, Sanju, became a super-hit at Box Office and Ranbir’s performance as Sanjay Dutt was widely appreciated. The actor has now got an impressive lineup of films – Dharma Productions’ Brahmastra and YRF’s Shamshera, followed by an untitled film with Ajay Devgn and Luv Ranjan.
While Ranbir’s last few films before Sanju couldn’t do wonders at Box Office, his performances were appreciated in all of them. And the actor calls it pure luck. In his latest interview with Hindustan Times, the actor opened up on how he is warming up to this new found success. Calling himself an ‘average actor’ and a ‘below-average’ human being’, Ranbir said, “Actually, (handling) success is easy. When you are successful, you don’t really feel it because people are only full of praise, but failure teaches you a lot. It will slap you hard, and you won’t even realise it.”

He added, ” I don’t even give myself too much importance. I feel I am just an average actor and a below-average person, who just got great opportunities. Yes, I have good belief and confidence in myself that I can do something. And that’s why I am successful because otherwise, I am not saving the world. I am just acting in movies so just can’t take it that seriously”.
Earlier, talking about how much he wants his films to do well commercially, Ranbir had stated that while he wants the audience to like his performance in a film, Box Office success is really important to him. In one of the promotional media interactions before the release of Sanju, he said, “I am not interested in awards, I want my film to be good. Film achi hai, sab acha hai. Maine sabse zada life ki acting Bombay Velvet me ki thi. But, it didn’t work. The audience is the king. There’s something wrong with the film itself if the audience hasn’t liked it. Sometimes, the film doesn’t find its audience. But, I am not the kind of an actor who says ‘logo ko samajh me Nahi ai.’ If it doesn’t do well, it feels bad but then you move on.”
