The 70 year old multiple Oscar winner dropped by at his Silver Linings Playbook co-star Anupam Kher’s acting institute ‘Actor Prepares’ before leaving for the US. He arrived last week to attend the THiNK fest in Goa and had been travelling.
Since the fans of De Niro in Bollywood are certainly not few, Kher invited them over to his acting school. Ranbir Kapoor was spotted touching De Niro’s feet and later posed for photos with him.
Robert De Niro met the stars, actors, students and teachers and discussed the fine points of the art of acting with them. All the young guns of Bollywood, including Ranbir, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Varun Dhawan were seen listening with rapt attention. Ranbir also had his moment of fun when he stepped in front of De Niro and enacted his famous dialogue from Taxi Driver, “You talkin’ to me?”
Robert De Niro was quite floored by the warmth and affection shown to him. When he departed, Ranbir accompanied him to the car and again touched his feet. De Niro blessed him kindly.
Photos from the meet have been posted online by ‘Actor Prepares’ and celebs and fans. We share them with you.
