Freshly out from the success of Rohit Shetty’s blockbuster Simmba, Ranveer Singh is all set to show hi Gully avatar in Zoya Akhtar’s upcoming film Gully Boy. The film co-starring Alia Bhatt is a story based on the life of Indian rappers. Recently, Ranveer opened up about his upcoming film, how he feels he is connected to this role the most and why he feels he’s not getting the desired film offers.
When asked about him being one of the most bankable actors in today’s times, he said, “It’s strange actually, now people maybe have this perception that one is inaccessible so I’d like you to write so that new directors and promising talent start approaching me, like when I see Ayushmann’s scripts and I am like ‘ye filmein mere paas kyun nahi aati’.”
“I believe acting is subjective, there is no good or bad acting, I may like some performance which you may not, so in that case, I want to be a versatile actor where I can be effective in all the genres. I have consciously endeavoured to be one, like in 2013 I did Lootera, so introverted and brooding and then I did an absolute raw and rambunctious peacock in Ram Leela in the very same year. In 2015, it was Dil Dhadakne Do and Bajirao Mastani, and then Khijli and Simmba with the back of that is Gully Boy, I am understanding this because I have been getting all the feedback from social media about it, I know what the talk is going on about me, I know all the aspects now and it’s very heartening to me. I want to be recognized as the most versatile actor” the actor added.
Ranveer also said that he understands people have expectations from him and that’s a huge responsibility he is carrying on his shoulders, regarding this he said, “Now people come with a believe if my name is attached that there will be some quality of work, so I have to rise up to their trust. I understand the responsibility on me and so I am choosing my scripts wisely”.
Ranveer is currently busy with the promotions of Gully Boy and the film is all set to release on February 14.
