Ranbir Kapoor may be having the time of his life, holidaying in the sunny locales of Maldives with girlfriend Katrina Kaif, but underneath all the fun and 'rocking' exterior, is a very solemn and subdued person, as we got to know recently from the star himself.

Mumbai Mirror reports that Ranbir was overheard when he was making this startling revelation to a friend. Ranbir said, "I don't give a damn anymore. I identify with 'The Outsider'. I think I am him. I could not put the book down and read it in six days straight. I also don't cry anymore. I cannot remember the last time I cried. I am hoping I get to play this character on the big screen since I identify with him."

The titular character of 'The Outsider', Meursault is an indifferent French Algerian who, after attending his mother's funeral, apathetically kills a man. Author Albert Camus had explained his protagonist as, "In our society any man who does not weep at his mother's funeral runs the risk of being sentenced to death.I only meant that the hero of my book is condemned because he does not play the game."

Well, as for Ranbir, we do feel he could portray the character to the tee. However, do you think Ranbir himself has such deep levels in real life? It certainly does not seem so..or does it? thoughts?
