With each re­lease, be it Band Baaja Baaraat (2010), Lootera (2013), Goliyon Ki Raasleela RamLeela (2013) or his last film, Bajirao Mas­tani (2015), Ran­veer Singh has been strength­en­ing his po­si­tion in the in­dus­try as an ac­tor and as a bank­able star. The ac­tor has also been of­fered re­gional films. “I would love to act in movies in lan­guages other than Hindi, when­ever the time is right. There have been a few of­fers, but I’m more al­lured by the ones back home (Bol­ly­wood).”

The ac­tor has al­most com­pleted work on Aditya Chopra’s film in Paris. Talk­ing about the ex­pe­ri­ence, Ran­veer says, “It has been an in­cred­i­ble ex­pe­ri­ence. It was ex­actly what the doc­tor or­dered, af­ter an in­tense film like Bajirao... my fond­est mem­ory has been the time I have spent and bonded with Adi sir. He and I made the film in the hap­pi­est phases of our lives. I hope our hap­pi­ness trans­lates on screen.”

Of late, Ran­veer has also signed many ad en­dorse­ments. When asked whether he has signed 22 ad deals, he says, “Even I don’t know what the ac­cu­rate num­ber is. But it is a stag­ger­ing amount. This (suc­cess) has been a long time com­ing… I was wait­ing for it. Now that it is hap­pen­ing, I’m very happy.”

Ran­veer adds, “In or­der to com­mit to Bajirao... I had to change my look. That was a bit re­stric­tive. I couldn’t do a lot of live shows and not even a lot of brand work. And I re­ally en­joy that. Ad­ver­tis­ing was my side thing (be­fore I started my act­ing ca­reer). I used to be a copy writer. So, I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to shoot­ing some of these ads.”
