- I'm not the Ranveer Singh on Band Baaja Baaraat now, he said
- Ranveer Singh says things are happening in reverse now
- Ranveer Singh will be next seen in Aditya Chopra's Befikre
From making a promising debut with Band Baaja Baaraat
to giving a critically-acclaimed performance in Bajirao Mastani
, Ranveer Singh has shown tremendous growth as an actor
, but according to the star himself, he has finally deconstructed his learning of the craft.
The 31-year-old actor says, in his initial days, he felt he knew it all
, but now feels like he is just a beginner.
"The more films I do, the more I understand that I don't know anything. Every time I go on a set, I feel as if I have forgotten everything. When I started (with) Band Baaja Baraat
, I thought I knew everything and I was the best actor in the world. But it's happening in reverse now
," Ranveer told PTI in an interview.
The actor says he has now become a student of the craft.
"These days when I do films, I feel I don't know anything. I have understood that this craft is limitless and the possibilities in the realm of acting are limitless and I am hoping to explore them more."
Ranveer, who will be next seen in Aditya Chopra's Befikre
, whose trailer was launched at the Eiffel Tower, says he considers himself fortunate to get some great opportunities, which contribute in his growth.
"I used to be a very different kind of actor. I am not that actor anymore and not that person anymore. I have changed a lot as an actor and as a person. I have grown for good. I am not the Ranveer of Band Baaja Baaraat
. I find myself learning something new with every film. I am blessed that every new film has something new for me to learn from," he said.
Ranveer received a lot of praise for filmmaker Vikramaditya Motwane's Lootera
and the actor says that recognition made him more confident about his abilities.
"When you get validation, which for me started when I got critical acclaim for Lootera
, it makes you gain a little bit of self confidence in your own abilities and then you can play with your craft," he said.
Ranveer, who started his Bollywood journey with Yash Raj Films
, finds his performance in Befikre
one of his best till date.
"I find Befikre to be one of my best performances
. Whatever I have seen in dub, I have understood it takes a lot of fortitude to go on a live set knowing nothing at all and being almost completely spontaneous. Not knowing your pauses, actions and not even sticking to your dialogues. For me, that is a huge sign of evolution," he said.
The new-age-romance is set in Paris and Ranveer did many impromptu things while filming the project.
"I am now comfortable and confident enough to go into a scene where everything is left to the chance that we just roll the camera and see what transpires. It's a unique approach that Adi sir and I adopted and I feel it has worked like magic," he said.Befikre
, also starring Vaani Kapoor, will hit the theatres on December 9. (This story has not been edited by NDTV staff and is auto-generated from a syndicated feed.)
