There is no doubt that there is no other actor who is as energetic as Ranveer Singh in the whole Bollywood industry. He came from nowhere yet he made a place for himself in everybody’s heart. Apart from his enthusiasm and high energy, he is also known for his great sense of humour and out of box fashion senses. The actor had been giving us back to back gripping performances from Khilji in Padmavat to being rapper Murad in Gully Boy.
To be honest, the roles and characters Ranveer Singh has played will be hard to forget for the next ten decades. While the actor often catches our attention with his quirky fashion senses or funny gestures, it seems like there is more to learn about Ranveer Singh. It seems like some layers remained undiscovered until the recent interview where the actor opened up on the most memorable moments of his audition days in the early days of his career.
Ranveer Singh here talks about the audition which happened after his debut in Band Baaja Baarat opposite Anushka Sharma where he was required to drink. In the interview, Ranveer told Femina, “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’.”
But as everyone knows, nothing comes easy to anyone especially when you do not belong to any celeb fraternity. Ranveer too had to struggle a lot in his struggling days as an actor and in the interview; he went on saying what it taught him. “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 has seen the ups and downs and he seems to have remembered every harsh lesson that the industry gave to him and thus he adds, “Through the harsh lessons, disappointments, humiliation, rejection, one has to find something within him that keeps him going. For me, they were two things. One, I was passionate about acting, and wasn’t pursuing it for money or fame. Two, self-belief; I had to keep telling myself, ‘You’re good, you have to believe so because if you’re good and persistent, something will happen.’ Today, I value every opportunity.”
