Ranbir Kapoor is a huge football fan.

Actor Ranbir Kapoor says that he will take the legacy of RK Studios forward, though he feels sad about the sale.

Ranbir was interacting with the media at an event “Cricket Dil Se’ organized by electronic appliance brand Panasonic on Saturday in Mumbai.


The iconic RK Studios is being sold and will be turned into a housing complex by Godrej.

“RK Studios was RK Studios because of my grandfather. He built the studio because of his films and talent. Of course, you feel sad that the studio will not be there anymore, but I think, RK is more in the spirit and that is something I would really like to take forward. I would like to take the legacy forward, in producing film and making movies,” said Ranbir.

He said the year has been hectic for him as he is shooting simultaneously for ‘Brahmastra’ and ‘Shamshera’ touted as two big action films. “Both of these are big action films and I am not used to that genre, so it’s been quite a hard year for me. But I am having fun while shooting. I am equally excited for both the films.”

He said he went to Berlin for some work relating to ‘Brahmastra’ and over there. “I experienced Europe summer because it’s always good to take the sun and relax yourself and now, I am back here to shoot for ‘Brahmastra’. We will start shooting for it, so now, I am feeling nice and relaxed.”

Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan starrer ‘Brahmastra’ was scheduled to release during Christmas this year, but a few days ago, director Ayan Mukherji said his film will now release in the summer of 2020 because of post-production work, including special effects and computer graphics.

Does he feel worried about being off-screen in most of 2019, he said, “No, no worries. We have been working on ‘Brahmastra’ for thelast six years. The film has been delayed due to various reasons such as computer graphics and special effects.”

Ranbir also hinted that because of a delay in ‘Brahmastra’ his another untitled film co-starring Ajay Devgn will be pushed further. “As far as Luv Ranjan’s film is concerned, now, ‘Brahmastra’ has been pushed to summer of 2020 and after that ‘Shamshera’ will release so, Luv Ranjan’s film also might have to go ahead because I think audience will also get bored of me if I would appear in three movies in one year. So let’s see, its release date is still being planned.”

Wishing for Indian cricket team for the upcoming cricket World Cup, Ranbir said, “Actually, I am a huge admirer of football, but of course now, IPL (Indian Premiere League) fever is there among people and our Indian cricket team will participate in World Cup soon. So, I think it’s a great year for cricket and I extend best wishes to our team so that they can get the World Cup this year.” (IANS)

Since the first tea leaf was consumed in China thousands of years ago, people have been aware of the health benefits of drinking tea and how different types of tea can help treat different illnesses. Certain teas are good for fighting cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and cholesterol, while others aid in weight loss and improving metabolism, treating mental health disorders, preventing migraines, and improving sleep patterns. Ekta Jain, CMO, Octavius Tea, shares the benefits to our physical and mental health of specific types of tea leaves:

Black Leaf Teas
Often the best choice for breaking your fast in the morning, the aroma and boldness of black leaf teas is enough to kickstart your day by giving you the necessary amount of energy. Black Tea is produced as a labour of love, with days of intense plucking, sieving, and withering in order to preserve complex flavonoids and powerful antioxidants like catechins. These leaves contain more tannins than any other type of tea which soothes stomach aches and other bowel-related problems.
