‘I'm pro­tec­tive about my per­sonal life’

Though known for his flam­boy­ance, ac­tor Ran­veer Singh is a pri­vate per­son and loves to keep his re­la­tion­ship news un­der wraps

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Gos­sip mills have been in over­drive with ru­mours of his re­la­tion­ship with a ctor Deepika Padukone, but ac­tor Ran­veer Singh (far right) has al­ways cho­sen not to speak about it.

“I’m very pro­tec­tive about my per­sonal life. I’d like to pro­tect a few as­pects in my life,” says Ran­veer, adding, “I’m mostly open and hon­est, but there are some as­pects that I choose to pro­tect and I hope peo­ple re­spect my de­ci­sion.”

The 31-year-old de­scribes his ex­pe­ri­ence in the Hindi film in­dus­try as mag­i­cal. “I gen­uinely be­lieve that I’m living a dream. Every day, I when wake up, I can hardly be­lieve that I’m a main­stream ac­tor who works in Hindi films. Work­ing in main­stream Hindi films has been my dream,” he adds.

The ac­tor says that he has learnt a lot by col­lab­o­rat­ing with peo­ple who’ve en­riched his life and cre­ativ­ity. “My work has been ap­pre­ci­ated and I’ve learnt from the highs and, more so, from the lows. I’ve be­come more of a well­rounded per­son thanks to my ex­pe­ri­ence.”

Ran­veer’s next is di­rected by film­maker San­jay Leela Bhansali. This is not the first time that Ran­veer is work­ing with him. They last worked in Ba­ji­rao Mas­tani (2015), which also had Deepika Padukone in it. “I’ve learnt the max­i­mum from him (Bhansali). He has moulded me as an ac­tor and shaped me as a cre­ative per­son. He has been a tremen­dous in­flu­ence. Some of the great­est learn­ings that I’ve had are by sim­ply ob­serv­ing the way he goes about his work,” he says.

The ac­tor feels hon­oured to be work­ing with the film­maker for the third time.

“It’s a mat­ter of great hon­our that I have been se­lected to be his lead­ing man for the third time in a row. That in it­self is a great achieve­ment to me. And I hope to col­lab­o­rate with him and con­tinue to make mem­o­rable cinema,” adds the ac­tor, who was seen in films such as Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela (2013), Be­fikre (2016) and Lootera (2013).
