From Bittoo Sharma of Band Baaja Baaraat to Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, Ranveer Singh has come a long way. If he has played a Ladies Ka Ricky Bahl then he has slayed the audience with his subtle performance in Lootera too. If he has played Maratha warrior Bajirao for Sanjay Leela Bhansali then he has turned monstrous Khilji for Padmaavat as well.
In a career of fewer than 10 years, Ranveer has perfectly displayed his versatility as an actor and now he is all set to surprise the audience with his Kapil Dev role in upcoming film ’83.
Recalling his old golden days recently Ranveer revealed how he puked during an audition and it left the filmmaker impressed. In an interview with Femina, Ranveer said, “After Band Baaja Baaraat, a prominent filmmaker was auditioning me for a significant part in his project. The scene was that a character who is a teetotaller happens to drink one night, and starts dancing. I performed and danced my heart out. Such was the intensity that I puked at the end. The filmmaker thought it was sheer brilliance. He said ‘Kitni detail mein socha hai iss ladke ne.'”
He further said, “Those years have given me some of the fondest memories of my life. Things are flying at the moment, but I will always remember the time when there was none of it; when I used to be staring at the bottom of the barrel not knowing whether that phone is ever going to ring, or if I will ever get a break.”
Ranveer Singh will be accompanied by Deepika Padukone in ’83 movie who will play Kapil Dev’s wife. Directed by Kabir Khan, the film is based on India’s 1983 World Cup victory.
