Ranveer's Most Challenging Preparation For A Role Yet
Ranveer had shared on Rajeev Masand's Actors' Roundtable that with 83, he will be going through his most difficult preparation for acting yet. He said, "The most challenging thing is just around the corner, as in January, I will be going to train to bowl like Kapil Dev. That's going to be hard. I must tell you the story. I went to Lord's to watch a Test match. It rained all day and there was not a single ball bowled. In the box, Sachin Tendulkar happened to come. I was lucky enough to get some time with him. I was telling him I am doing this movie and I am playing Kapil Dev. I told him I am going to do all the homework and I am going to get the look and accent everything, but I think the most difficult part would be the bowling. And he was like - oh, you are going to do the bowling yourself? He also thinks it's going to be tough,"
