Actor Ranbir Kapoor has said the notion of masculinity has to be changed to empower women.

Ranbir said this on Thursday while interacting with the media along with Deepika Padukone, Shabana Azmi, and Manish Malhotra.

Ranbir and Deepika walked the ramp for designer Manish Malhotra, in an event organised by Shabana Azmi’s Mijwan Welfare Society.

On asking his idea of empowering the women of the country and securing equal rights for them, Ranbir said: “I think firstly, we have to change the notion of masculinity.”

“I think the idea which we have in our mind about masculinity… if we could change the feeling of entitlement then that’s the big thing,” he said.

“Once we do that, we should provide a platform to encourage citizen of our country, especially to girls and the women. It will then be a great start and I think Mijwan Welfare Society is just about that,” Ranbir added.

Speaking on his experience of walking the ramp with his co-actor and ex-girlfriend Deepika Padukone after so long, Ranbir said: “I think the biggest thing is we have come together to walk for Mijwan Welfare Society. That is the bigger picture here so it’s always wonderful to walk for Manish with Deepika and for Shabana aunty and everybody concerned with Mijwan Welfare Society.”

When Deepika was asked regarding her experience of walking the ramp with Ranbir, she said: “It’s very exciting. This is for the first time I am walking the ramp for the Mijwan fashion show. I started off my career as a model. I walked the ramp many times but this was special. It felt genuine, real and connected.”

“I feel everyone behind the scenes has worked really hard in doing what they do. Not just putting the show together but you can see the work, effort, and craftsmanship,” said Deepika.

Ranbir will be seen next in the biopic of actor Sanjay Dutt titled “Sanju”, directed by Raj Kumar Hirani, and in “Brahmastra” which is directed by Ayan Mukherji.  IANS

While Ranbir Kapoor has been vocal about how inspiring it has been to work with Paresh Rawal in “Sanju”, the veteran actor believes the young star is an inspiration for the new generation.

Ranbir and Paresh bring alive the father-son bond of Sanjay Dutt and Sunil Dutt on-screen in “Sanju”, a biopic directed by Rajkumar Hirani.

Praising Ranbir, Paresh told IANS: “I have worked with various actors, but working with Ranbir is something else. He is a very talented actor. And let me tell you, playing Sanjay Dutt, whom we can see every now and then on-screen, is certainly not easy for any actor.

“The way Ranbir internalised and delivered the character… He is flawless. He is an inspirational actor for the coming generation.”

Working with Hirani for the first time was also special for Paresh.

“I think I am lucky to be a part of this special film. I was destined to be a part of a film where some of the finest talents like Raju (Hirani), Abhijat Joshi and Ranbir are a part of. I was supposed to work in ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’ but it did not work out. I was offered the role that later Boman Irani played in the film.

“But such things happen, and I had in my mind that one day, I will work with him (Hirani). Finally, it has happened with ‘Sanju’,” he said.
