Mumbai, June 8 (Calcutta Tube) Already endorsing a number of consumer brands, Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor has now become the brand ambassador of Nissan Motors India as well.
‘I feel really good that such a big brand has given me this responsibility. It’s truly a good, comforting car and it’s not that expensive also,’ Ranbir told reporters here Tuesday after the launch of Nissan’s first locally made car – Nissan Micra.
In last six months three consumer brand giants like ITC John Players, Pepsi and Panasonic have roped him in as their brand ambassador.
‘I am an actor and have to concentrate on it. When a brand comes and thinks that I am responsible enough, and have some capability to sell their product, I am more than happy to do it. Of course they pay well,’ the actor says laughing.
Talking about his love for driving, Ranbir said: ‘At night going for a drive is the most therapeutic thing. It’s the time when I can think about my day, about what am I going to do,’ Ranbir said.
The actor who has garnered rave reviews for his performance in his recent release ‘Rajneeti’ believes that there is no politics in the film industry.
‘In my generation of actors and directors, there is lots of positivity. Of course there is certain competition as well but I haven’t seen any Rajneeti as yet and I would like to believe that there is nothing like Rajneeti in the film industry,’ Ranbir said.
Stories are doing the round that there would be a biopic on legendary singer Kishore Kumar and Ranbir might play the protagonist. The actor doesn’t rules out the possibility but maintains that nothing has been finalized as yet.
‘For quite a long time talks have been on about that film but nothing is decided as yet. Kishore kumar is the legend of our industry and when a film is made on him it has to be done in the right way. It’s too early to talk about it because nothing has been finalized as yet,’ Ranbir said.
