I AM STILL RAW: RANVEER SINGH
The actor says he is happy that his work is appreciated but he doesn’t want to stagnate
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.
