One film old and Ranveer Singh is already feeling the jitters before his second film, Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl hits theatres this Friday (December 9). While Ranveer played a street-smart wedding planner in his debut film, he’s a charming con artist in this one. At least co-star Anushka Sharma is impressed. “Ranveer was more calm and composed in this (LVRB) than in Band Baaja Baaraat. He is a Shah Rukh Khan in the movie: he charms the family of the girl, they fall in love with him and he runs off with their money. He’s very natural… Maneesh (director Maneesh Sharma) throws scenes at us (during the filming), Ranveer is fantastic in those scenes,” she says, praising her colleague.
Unlike Anushka, Ranveer has yet to be seen on screen with other stars but he’s making sure he doesn’t grow too big for his shoes, “I hope I never arrive… I mean I will become complacent,” he stresses. “I feel compelled to work after work… Right now I just want to work. I like the process of making films, learning, performing… But this requires me to be in the public eye, be judged and given undue attention… I don’t like this superficiality of things…”
For Anushka, getting back with her crew of BBB was one of the most comforting things, “The whole unit (of LVRB) is from BBB so we all came with positive vibe on the set. And that too during the hottest season in Goa!” Even with four movies behind her, Anushka still feels the pressure to perform, “My expectations were not met after Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. I did not achieve overnight stardom, and I am happy to not skip the steps to stardom, not to miss the experience to mature. After RNBDJ, I was scared if I would get good films. Then it happened with BBB. I feel I have taken a flight. I’m getting offers from good directors.”
We’re hope this bubby duo have lots of good movies to come!
