"I don't get too carried away with success, neither do I get too bogged down by failure. What's most important for me is that you deliver on your promise to the audience. I have pledged to try and be the best entertainer that I can possibly be, and to see the kind of response, love and praise that people are showering on our performance is extremely heartening for me," Ranveer told IANS.

"It fills me with more motivation to go out and work even harder and keep doing good work. Of course, "Padmaavat" will be a gem in my filmography. It is one of those rare successes that gets the kind of critical acclaim that it has, as well as the commercial success. It's been an avalanche of love coming from everywhere and it is quite overwhelming," he told PTI.
As of ow, Ranveer has shifted focus on Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy, co-starring Alia Bhatt. "I haven't really had the time to celebrate, I have been shooting Gully Boy every day and it is going extremely well. Honestly, what more can I ask for, it is my greatest gift that I can go to a film set every day and do what I love doing," he said.
Ranveer Singh has also signed up for Rohit Shetty's Simmba and Kabir Khan's '83.
