Ranveer Singh Said He Still Can’t Believe He Is A Bollywood Star. He’s Gotta Stop Being So Adorable!
We know Ranveer Singh as a humble, down-to-earth human being, who’s really energetic. His debut film, Band Baaja Baaraat was a sleeper hit that continued to be in theatres for a long time. Lootera, Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, and Gunday got him appreciation from the critics, and acceptance as a legit hero in Bollywood. However, it was Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat that got him his official status as a Bollywood star!
While all of us would unanimously give a nod to his star status, he still doesn’t believe it. In a recent interview with Femina, he revealed how he is still in disbelief. “I am a special case because I never became a huge star in my head. I’m still the kid with stars in his eyes who is in disbelief that he even became a star,” Ranveer said. In fact, even his contemporaries pull his leg for being that humble! He revealed that his Bajirao Mastani co-actor Priyanka Chopra always tells him “Tu wo ladka hai jisko yakeen hi nahin ho raha hai ki wo star bann gaya. Jo aaj bhi bolta hai ‘mummy, main star bann gaya, dekho ye log meri photo lena chahte hain.”
Ranveer Singh believes it’s his passion for acting that eventually got him the success. He said, “For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a performer, and today, stardom is its by-product. When youngsters seek my advice, the first question I ask them is, ‘Are you passionate about acting?’ or ‘Are you lured by the glitz of stardom?’ Stardom to me is empowering. You have the ability to spread smiles and cheer. It goes without saying, it comes with a certain amount of responsibility. There are negatives too, but the upside compensates, and you learn to take it in your stride.”
