Watch: When Natalie Portman asked Ranbir Kapoor to get lost


Watch When Natalie Portman asked Ranbir Kapoor to get lost

Ranbir Kapoor recently shared a few of his hilariously embarrassing interactions with Hollywood stars.

If you have ever been ignored by Ranbir Kapoor don’t feel heartbroken as the Bollywood star himself has had a fair share of unpleasant fan moments.

In a recent interview with Firstpost, the Tamasha actor revealed how he was royally ignored by his favourite Hollywood celebrities, Quentin Tarantino and Natalie Portman.

“You know this happens to me a lot. It’s not just Quentin Tarantino. I am star struck. I’ve run behind Natalie Portman at Tribeca. She was on the phone and she was crying. I went quickly behind her and said, ‘I love your…’ Before I could say ‘work’, she turned and said, ‘Get lost!’ So I’ve had my heart broken but I would still chase them,” shared Ranbir.

However, his experience with the Kill Bill director is a little more embarrassing as he was caught on tape.

“So with Quentin Tarantino recently, he was promoting The Hateful Eight and we were shooting Ae Dil Hai Mushkil in London. I was shooting in a basement and he was in the building. I heard that he was doing an interview so I went running up. I told Karan, ‘Listen, I have to meet him.’ Not that I’m going to say that I’m an actor from India. I just wanted to meet him, take a picture, an autograph.

“So I was waiting at the car for like half an hour. I saw him coming and from far I’m saying, ‘Quentin, Quentin.’ He walks, looks at me, goes and sits in his car. When the door opens, I’m like, ‘Sir, picture picture?’ and they have it on video. It was really funny and I got teased by the entire crew of ADHM, but just to see Quentin Tarantino.”

But Ranbir remains unaffected as he tried his best to live his these fan moments.

“Man, this guy really affected my life. His movies — Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction — are instrumental to the work I am doing. Subconsciously I’ve taken so much from those films so it was a big star struck moment. I don’t feel bad about it. I don’t feel like he is such an ass or a rude guy. I understand that it happens because he is in his own world and he is an artist. Artists are supposed to be weird.”

On the work front, Ranbir will next be seen in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil alongside Aishwarya Rai and Fawad Khan.
