Furthermore, he also went on to add, “But if I had to pick up a film then probably will be Zamane Ko Dikhana Hai It didn’t do well at that time. It’s a Nasir Hussain film starred my father and Padmini Kolhapure I really enjoyed that film it had. I think my father did some great comedy in that”.
On the work front, Ranbir has an interesting lineup of films like Brahmastra, Shamshera and Animal.
