Coming with a motive of making it big in Bollywood, this dashing dude has done it Band Baaja Baraat style and how! From the hot singleton status of desirability in India today, this naughty actor can bowl you over with his disarming candour. While Ladies V/s Ricky Bahl sloted him into a bracket of a typical commercial stunner, a period film like Lootera infused in a welcome change.
On a voyeuristic trail on his career, injuries, link-ups, heart breaks and success story, Ranveer Singh spices it all up with a dash of lemon squeezed into the already delicious and entertaining transcript of sorts. Ranveer who has stunned us with a thrilling and a breath taking performance in Vikramaditya Motwane’s Lootera also spoke of the ghastly encounter with a casting agent that prepared him for the bad part of the stupendous success that Bollywood brought with it.
While Ranveer today has turned out to be one of the yummiest singletons, although rumours of his link ups with every other costar is just another love saga of its own, it was Amitabh Bachchan’s Jumma chumma which instilled the desire in him to be an actor, he recalled! “I always was such a nautanki. I always did drama and dance and stuff when I was young. My grandmother used to ask me to dance to Jumma Chumma and I used to dance on it even in parties. Then from there I just wanted to grow up and turn into an actor.” But did this outsider have an easy way out? “Well, not literally”, he disagrees. “Initially after my studies, I went to study abroad and I studied Acting abroad. But when I came back, all I did was just copywriting because I simply love writing. Writing is kind of my biggest hobby and I guess if I had not been an actor, I would have been a copywriter. But then during my struggling period, all I hoped was for a brilliant break and Yash Raj just parceled it to me. I could not have asked for anything more”
Talk to him and you know you cannot get away without a Rapid Fire. And voila, Ranveer Singh spilled secrets in his candid avatar during the Rapid Fire session as well.
