'It hurts because I think after my parents, she (Katrina) has been the most influential, most motivational entity in my life.'
Ranbir Kapoor has finally spoken out about his public breakup with girlfriend Katrina Kaif.
In a promo of his candid chat with Rajeev Masand, the 33-year-old actor is seen saying, 'It was really punctured by a lot of things -- by baseless rumours and reports and perceptions and point of views. It hurts because I think after my parents, she (Katrina) has been the most influential, most motivational entity in my life,' he says.
The former couple will be seen together in Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos slated to release next year.
Ranbir also feels that there’s a need for reinvention.
'I am in that phase where I have to change, my films have to change, my pocket of expression has to change and the tricks in my magic bag have to change,' he says.
Talking about his state of mind after his recent string of flops, Ranbir said his confidence is affected.
'I will be lying if I say my confidence is not affected,' he says. 'When films don’t do well, actors feel insecure, worrisome. It makes actors feel, 'is the shine on my star fading? Do I have anything else to offer?''
Ranbir will be next seen in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, along with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan. It will release on October 28.
