Ranveer Singh recently said he was the first choice of Aditya
Chopra for Befikre right from the beginning despite the director
having Shahrukh Khan star in all his three films he made in his
near three-decade long career.
"I am the least territorial person; I don't think I am entering
anyone's territory. Adi sir wanted to make the film with me and I
am involved in the project from its scripting. I am glad that my
mentor has given me the opportunity to work under his direction.
It's a big deal for me," said the actor at the launch of "You and
I" song of Befikre with Vaani Kapoor, his co-star in the movie.
Earlier Ranveer worked with Aditya Chopra on Ladies VS Ricky
Bahl where Chopra penned the story of the film.
Noting that after Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan, he is the
only actor in Bollywood directed by Aditya Chopra and Sanjay Leela
Bhansali, he said, "I am so proud and happy. I think I am lucky to
get such opportunity. Though I want to work with big names of
Bollywood, I also want to work with young directors and fresh
Befikre is set to release next month. With inputs from IANS.
