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 idea."
Befikre is set to release next month. With inputs from IANS.
