Bollywood Woos the South: Ranbir Eats Off Banana Leaf With Rajamouli and Nagarjuna
The trio, who were in Chennai to promote Ayan Mukherji’s upcoming film ‘Brahmastra’, tried the delectable south Indian meal served to them on a plantain leaf in the traditional way.
Earlier, speaking at a press conference called by the ‘Brahmastra’ team, Ranbir said, “I am so happy to share our vision of ‘Brahmastra’ with you. All of you are from a state that is so rich in culture, in music and performing arts. It is my privilege to be here.”
Talking about his co-actors, Ranbir said, “I had the honor of working with legends such as Amitabh Bachchan sir and Nag(arjuna) sir in this film.”
The actor went on to thank Rajamouli, who is presenting the film, saying: “Never in my wildest dreams have I thought that I would have a poster with S.S. Rajamouli’s name and my face on it. That is such a big privilege. Thank you so much for this.”
Talking about Alia Bhatt, his wife and co-star in the film, Ranbir said she is one of the best actors he has ever worked with, and he had the good fortune of finally marrying her.
“Alia is somebody whom I met on this film. Our romance started on this film’s set but by the time the film got over, we are married and expecting a baby also. So, you can really understand how long this journey has been,” the actor said, adding, “It is really an emotional moment for all of us.”
