Have only learned from failures, not successes: Ranbir Kapoor

Posted On Nov 17 2019 by

first_imgMumbai, Jun 17 (PTI) He may be one of the most promising young stars of Bollywood, but Ranbir Kapoor says his failures have taught him more than his successes.The 35-year-old actor, whose last release “Jagga Jasoos” did not do well at the box office, overtook Fox Star Hindi’s official Twitter handle today for a Q & A with his fans ahead of the release of his film “Sanju”.When one of the users asked him how he handles failures and stays positive, Ranbir said, “I have only learned from my failures and not from my successes. “The actor added he always wanted to be in movies and is “grateful” to be able to pursue acting as a career.”What I have learned since I became a star is that I am very grateful, that I get to do what I love!”Asked how he celebrates success, Ranbir said, “By wiping the sweat off my forehead and muttering ‘bach gaye’ (good save) to myself.”The actor, who essays the role of Sanjay Dutt in the upcoming film directed by Rajkumar Hirani, said it is both “terrifying and exciting” to star in someone’s biopic.Ranbir is not active on social media. So, when one of the admirers asked him how it felt to be on Twitter, he said it is “strange” but he is happy to connect with fans on Father’s Day.The actor shared an exclusive snippet from “Sanju”, in which he and Paresh Rawal, who plays veteran actor Sunil Dutt in the film, can be seen recreating the memorable ‘Jaadu Ki Jhappi’ moment from “Munna Bhai MBBS”.advertisementAsked if he quarrelled with his real-life father, Rishi Kapoor, Ranbir said he is scared of him and joked he does not even know his eye colour.”I don’t even know what his eye colour is because I’ve never looked into his eye. However, Happy Father’s Day papa. I love you! (sic)” he wrote.The actor, who previously worked with Rishi in “Besharam”, said he would love to collaborate with him again.Ranbir shared some quality time with his father when they recently watched Argentina play Iceland at 2018 FIFA World Cup”I am a football fan and papa’s a cricket fan! But we watched the Argentina-Iceland game together. It was fun educating him about the sport!” he said.Also starring Dia Mirza, Vicky Kaushal, Sonam K Ahuja, Anushka Sharma, among others, “Sanju” releases June 29. PTI RDS SHDSHDlast_img read more

Even in the first-half, they had a small confusion and Jona made a fantastic tackle into the box.”I think all of us are in good form, clean sheet as well.”Very important for David as well. We wanted to make David happy because he was a little bit disappointed the last games.”I had to cope with him after the game, killing my mind, telling me that he wanted a clean sheet and I’m happy for him as well because he got a clean sheet.” last_img read more


Texas Football Staffer Took Shots At Texas A&M And Baylor’s QB Development During NFL Draft

Posted On Oct 27 2019 by

first_imgMike Giglio says how certain Texas schools don't teach enough about football.Texas Staffer Takes Shot At A&M, BaylorAs strange as it sounds, Baylor has been the dominant college football program in Texas over the last few seasons, and Texas A&M is still basking in the glow of its move to the SEC and the exciting Johnny Manziel era in College Station. Texas, meanwhile, is in the middle of a full rebuild under Charlie Strong, who enters his second season in Austin. That isn’t preventing Texas director of player personnel Mike Giglio from taking shots at Baylor and A&M. During today’s final day of the NFL Draft, Giglio used an ESPN clip to promote Strong-product Teddy Bridgewater over an unnamed Manziel, and took a shot at Baylor’s quarterback development after the Jets took Bryce Petty in the fourth round.Sounds like that’s what helped @teddyb_h2o become NFL Rookie of the Year instead of that spread QB taken before him pic.twitter.com/n1UGmGFlRb— Mike Giglio (@MikeMGiglio) May 2, 2015Not much teaching going on up there huh? @McShay13 said he identified fronts in HS! Come to ATX & learn to be a pro! pic.twitter.com/w7cIuiz2Dw— Mike Giglio (@MikeMGiglio) May 2, 2015The NFL Draft is a tremendous opportunity for top programs to promote themselves to fans and recruits. For the most part, they don’t do it by putting down rival teams, but Giglio doesn’t seem to have any issue with taking some shots today. [247Sports]last_img read more
