Ac­tor Ran­veer Singh (far right) says that dur­ing the shoot of one of the se­quences of his next film, di­rec­tor Aditya Chopra ob­served that he was act­ing like Anil Kapoor (right) and told him to act like him­self.

“Be­fikre’s shoot was go­ing on in Paris and Adi (Chopra) sir cut a shot, came from be­hind the mon­i­tor and said ‘Yaar, you have started act­ing like Anil Kapoor. Af­ter shar­ing screen space in Dil Dhadakne Do (2015) there has been a deep im­pact of him on you. So now in the next take, you give Ran­veer’s shot, and not Anil’s,” says Ran­veer.

The 31-year-old ac­tor even im­i­tated Anil’s ex­pres­sions and man­ner­isms at the event. “Ac­tu­ally he’s the big­gest mas­tikhor of all, when I see him I get into masti mood or look­ing at me, he comes into masti mood; it’s just al­ways a riot. How can I ex­plain what hap­pens af­ter I see him? I re­ally am in love, and in­fat­u­ated by him,” he adds.

The duo are re­lated as Anil’s wife Su­nita is Ran­veer’s aunt. Anil had pre­vi­ously said that he would want to see his daugh­ter Sonam be­ing paired op­po­site Ran­veer and had even ap­proved him as the choice for the role of his Lakhan in the re­make of the film Ram Lakhan (1989).

Ran­veer adds, “He is one of the rea­sons why I ever wanted to be­come an ac­tor. He is a leg­end, an icon. He is one of the most tal­ented, most hand­some men to grace our sil­ver screen. I am happy for him. I’m al­ways ex­cited about any­thing re­lated to him. I share a very spe­cial bond with Anil sir and I know how much his team has worked from the heart on this se­ries.”
