Ranbir Kapoor opens up about how good he is with children, calls himself ‘cool uncle’

Actor Ranbir Kapoor has uncovered how he is with children, days after his spouse actress Alia Bhatt said that the couple will soon welcome their baby. In a recent interaction, Ranbir talked about how his cousins Armaan Jain and Aadar Jain were like his ‘tail’ while growing up. He added that they ‘worshipped’ him thus he was probably ‘good to them’. Ranbir talked about his bond with his niece Samara, his sister Riddhima Kapoor Sahani’s daughter. In any case, Ranbir said that he would rather not be called uncle and prefers being referred to as ‘RK’, the initials of his name.

Talking with Mashable India, Ranbir Kapoor was inquired about how good he is with kids. He answered, “I would like to believe I am. I don’t know if I am good or not, but when my two younger cousins brothers Armaan, Aadar, were born, while they were growing up, they were like my tail. Wherever I went, they followed me, and they really worshipped me. So I guess I was good to them.”

He added, “I have a niece called Samara who’s 11 now, and she is a little shy, she also lives in Delhi, but during her growing up years, we were quite close. Now she’s in that awkward age where boys are a bit…But I would like to believe I am close to children. I am the cool uncle but I don’t like to be called uncle. I tell them ‘Call me RK’ because I don’t give an uncle tag…there’s a little bit of distance so that people think I’m cool. RK has got a ring to it and also I don’t want people to think I’m old. Just call me RK.”

In another segment from the same interview, Ranbir was asked about having tattoos and he answered that he had none yet. He additionally said that he could ink the number ‘8’ or ‘maybe my (tattoo is) going to be children’s names’.
