Ranveer Singh is all set for his upcoming film Bajirao Mastani.

When asked, ''You seem to be a changed man in front of the media these days - a bit more diplomatic perhaps. Would you agree?'', the handsome actor said, ''I will tell you what has happened. I have understood something about myself - which is where to draw the line between being a public figure and protecting my personal space. It took me time but I have learnt that if there are certain things I don't want to share, I don't have to.''
Ranveer Singh further added, ''But I am still a very open person who will perhaps end up speaking about 90 per cent of the stuff. I am not someone who can be easily offended.''
''The only thing that annoys me is when something gets printed without me verifying it and that happens too often. I don't know much about how the media should function but I know it's common sense to fact check before printing. At least give me the option to tell you my side of the story,'' he said.
The actor also talked about working with Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra in Bajirao Mastani, ''We shot most of the portions separately and I have a standing working equation with both of them, I understand them and their working styles, having worked with them previously.''
Talking about his role in Bajirao Mastani, Ranveer Singh said, ''I would have ideally wanted to leave town but I stayed in a hotel, because Mr Bhansali required me to come to office every now and then.''

Ranveer Singh further added, ''The process of getting into the character was up to me - how far you want to get into the rabbit hole. I had to leave the familiarity behind - leave home, stop talking to friends, stay away from everything that brings you back to being Ranveer.
''I hit the gym to physically prepare myself, sit with my accent coach for hours till either of us got bored. I read a lot, watched Marathi movies, and watched the making of warrior epics, read my script over and over again,'' he said.
Actor Ranveer Singh
Ranveer Singh further revealed, ''I would even do bizarre stuff like walk around the room trying different voices, different walking styles, postures.''

The handsome actor said, '' I would even record my voice and try to add a distinct character to it, so when you see me on screen you only see Peshwa Bajirao.''
