Ranbir, a stiff statue

MUMBAI: Looks like Ranbir Kapoor is on a go to be a sport, trying all sorts of things to win over the audience.

The promos and stills of his forthcoming movie Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani are giving out positive vibes, for the movie looks all vibrant and jovial. The latest tittle-tattle about this movie is that the actor has given a difficult shot — by posing as a statue! Reports reveal that the movie features the actor in a weird habit of talking to a particular statue in his locality. One fine day he realises that the stone-figure resembles him. And for this, the director Rajkumar Santoshi made Ranbir to be a statue!

“When I explained to Ranbir the scenes, he was extremely enthusiastic about turning into a statue, even though the entire process of becoming one was

tedious and painful. Once in make-up, Ranbir could only stand, there was no way he could even sit, forget lying down for those long hours. He had to keep on standing till all the shots were canned. Yet, he went through

the paces with great zest,” stated the director.
