However, recently Ranbir went on to say that he ‘didn’t fully deserve’ the award. Yes, during a promotional event in Chandigarh for his upcoming film Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, Ranbir was asked about his and Alia’s win to which, he went on to say, "Of course, I am very grateful ki mujhe yeh sammaan dia. I don't think I fully deserve it for Brahmastra.”
Further, he added, “Wo bahut badi kuch acting performance nahi thi. Jab bhi kuch award aata hai to of course you feel great,” he added. However, he praised his wife Alia and said, she deserved it for her stellar performance in Gangubai Kathiawadi."
"I am very excited that Alia won the award because she was truly deserving in her performance in Gangubai (Kathiawadi). That's one of her finest performances ever,” said Ranbir.
He also went on to add, “Par jab award milta hai, ek acha feedback, ek pappi milti hai ki chalo aapne theek thak kaam kia. Aur zyadatar feeling ye hoti hai ki chalo ye bach gaye, abhi agle tak tension abhi rakhenge. Ab ye jab film release ho to ye bhi chal gai, zyadatar yahi hota hai ki phew, bach gaye. (When we get an award, it is good feedback, a pat on the back that we worked fine. The usual feeling is that we are safe for now, and won’t take tension till the next project. This film has worked and we are safe). On to the next."
