Actor Ranveer Singh says he got to play Spider-Man in a play in school just because he was “chubby”.
“I have grown up loving many superheroes from both Marvel and DC universe. I remember playing Spider-Man in a school play but our play was a satire and it was a spoofy take on Spider-Man,” Ranveer told IANS.
“Because it was apparently funny to see a chubby kid in a tight Spider-Man suit. I was only too happy to go out on the stage and be laughed at.”
The actor, known for films like “Ladies vs Ricky Bahl“, “Lootera“, “Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela“, “Gunday“, “Dil Dhadakne Do” and “Bajirao Mastani“, says he never had a problem being a laughing stock.
“I still have no problem with being laughed at or (no problem) making a fool of myself.”
