"I am completely supporting Mumbai Indians," Kapoor told a television channel while promoting his forthcoming film "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani".
Directed by Ayan Mukerji, the movie, coming out May 31, is produced by Dharma Productions and stars Ranbir's former girlfriend Deepika Padukone along with Kalki Koechlin and Aditya Roy Kapur.
The disco track "Badtameez Dil" that sees Kapoor grooving with pelvic thrusts has topped charts across the country and is already a hit among youngsters.
"In my case, I didn't get to dance in the last two years... in 'Rockstarr' I was a singer, and in 'Barfi!' I was of course deaf and mute. So I completely went out and expressed my dancing in this film," said Kapoor.
