‘I’m a very serious person’
Don’t get fooled by Ranveer Singh’s frivolous attitude and cheerful personality — he confesses to being a serious person deep down.
“I think I like a cheerful atmosphere around me ... I like it when there are jokes and laughter ... I like to keep things light. The truth is that I’m a very, very serious and an over-sensitive person. I’m very emotional actually, but to be like that on a daily basis gets very heavy,” says the 30-year-old actor, however adding that the happy-golucky face is getting increasingly difficult to wear.
“Slowly, I’ve been noticing this change in myself, especially in the past year, that I have become mature. I don’t only joke and fool around,” he says.
Ranveer adds that doing a period film like his next, too, has been a contributing factor. “This jovial nature of mine is slowly waning. I’m becoming a little more serious. I guess it’s to do with the fact that I’m getting older. I just turned 30, I’m playing a character right now which is very mature, so with all of these things coming together … it’s happening organically.”
And he’s happy with this evolution. “I’m evolving as a person. It’s a good thing; I’m embracing it and not fighting it. I fought it when I was 26-27. But not anymore. My way of being is changing and I’m letting it happen the way it has to. I feel more responsible now.” He’s no more “apathetic about a lot of things,” and hopes that “slowly, over time, people will see that I’m not just a onedimensional person.”
