Aside from his hyper energetic persona which many people may perceive as frivolity, Ranveer Singh is actually a very committed actor. His performances in all his latest movies are leaving audiences floored. Set to deliver yet another amazing performance in Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy, Ranveer may well be on his way to becoming one of the best actors in Bollywood right now. In a recent interview, Ranveer opened up about why he makes versatile choices and take risks with his characters. Read up!
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Ranveer said that he became fearless after delivering a terrible performance in his second movie Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl. "I actually read a quote by Jack Nicholson recently which read 'once you are very terrible in a movie, it brings about a certain fearlessness.' Like, I was terrible in Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl, I was horrendous," But he added, "After that, I developed a certain level of fearlessness because how bad can I be? When you have done Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl, how bad can you get?" he said.
Ranveer further added, "Risks excite me and in order to push myself and not stay in the comfort zone, it is important for me to take risks. I take high risks at every level and aspect, whether it is the choices I make or choices in performance, even in life, sometimes. I like to play high risks because it excites me. For instance, playing Khilji was a huge risk. People said, 'he is such a despicable character with a homosexual undertone and people will hate you,' but I feel like nothing ventured, nothing gained."
Ranveer will be playing the role of a street rapper from Mumbai in Gully Boy, and it is an underdog story that has got everyone excited. Also starring Alia Bhatt, the film releases on February 14th.
