Ranbir Kapoor says that had 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 man on screen, but now the Barfi! star is receptive to the idea.
Ranbir lauds his contemporaries for taking up risky roles — be it Alia Bhatt in Udta Punjab or 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.”
Ranbir is also willing to play a second lead in a movie, but conditions apply.
He said, “Suppose tomorrow Rajkumar Hirani offers me the part of Circuit to the new Munna bhai. I would play it and try my best to do it justice.”

Referring to his current days not shooting for any films, Ranbir said, “I think I could have an alcohol problem.”
“It is a visual medium and I have to look after myself. When I shoot, when I work, I don’t drink. But when I’m not shooting…”.

Directing a film is something Ranbir has for long expressed interest in, but the actor says there is still time for him to get to the director’s chair.
“Look, I know how a film is made, but a director has to find the method to tell the story he has to tell. I’m not, because a) I’m lazy and b) acting is taking up my time and I don’t have a story, I can’t write,” he said.
