I AM STILL RAW: RANVEER SINGH

He won mil­lions of heart by show­cas­ing his fresh and raw act­ing skills six years ago in Band Baaja Baaraat. With over 10 films to his credit now, ac­tor Ranveer Singh (left) says he has evolved but be­lieves that he is still raw.

“I’m still raw... I’d like to be­lieve. Yes, there cer­tainly has been an evo­lu­tion. I have learnt a lot of things about the craft and peo­ple man­age­ment. I’ve be­come a lit­tle more re­spon­si­ble. When you are show­ered with so much love and af­fec­tion from the fans... it be­comes your re­spon­si­bil­ity to make them proud,” says Ranveer.

The ac­tor says he feels con­nected to his well-wish­ers and is happy that his work is be­ing highly ap­pre­ci­ated. But he hopes not to stag­nate.

“I hope to do dif­fer­ent stuff and never stag­nate. That’s re­ally the death of an artist... when you stag­nate,” he adds.

The 31-year-old, who has de­liv­ered hits such as Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela (2013) and Ba­ji­rao Mas­tani (2015), also un­der­went a low phase when Be­fikre (2016) didn’t do well at the box-of­fice.

Ranveer says one shouldn’t get af­fected by fail­ure.

“For­tu­nately, early in my ca­reer, I learnt that film­mak­ing is a team ef­fort, so one should not get too car­ried away by the suc­cess and, at the same time, you can­not get too bogged down by fail­ure,” he says. “So, when a film be­comes suc­cess­ful, it’s team­work and if the film doesn’t do well, maybe, the team as a col­lec­tive went wrong,” he adds.

The Gun­day (2014) ac­tor says that for him, the process of film­mak­ing is the prize. “I’m lucky and blessed that I get to do what I love to do for a liv­ing ... that I go to a film set in the morn­ing and get to per­form in front of the cam­era,” he con­cludes.
