Albeit, it was fake. Even his ex Deepika Padukone has RK inked on the nape of her neck.
So it was no surprise when the actor was spotted with Awara inked in Hindi on his right hand when he attended the first look launch of his upcoming film Yeh Jaawani Hai Deewani.
Speculations were running high about the origin of the tattoo. A source says, “His grandfather Raj Kapoor also had a famous film titled Awara.” And since RK is also part of Bombay Talkies, an assortment of short films to mark the 100 glorious years of Indian cinema, it was assumed that the tattoo could be for this film.
The source adds, “Since the film is about Indian cinema, the Awara link could not be ignored.” However, the film’s spokesperson says that due to Ranbir’s date issues, the song is not happening any more. The latest we hear on the tattoo is that it is a fake. An industry insider says, “Yeh Jaawani Hai Deewani is still being shot. He came directly from the sets to the event and didn’t have time to take the tattoo off. It goes with his character.”
