Ranveer Singh talks of his initial days as a struggling actor in the industry. This is what he had to say, “Initially, I faced rejection on the basis of how I looked not so much because of my ability. I was told that I wasn’t very good looking or conventional maybe I wasn’t fair or tall enough.”
Talking about believing in himself and having faith in his capabilities, Ranveer Singh said, “There was a time I landed a bunch of gigs but I decided to pass them on to gamble and wait for something bigger and I don’t really know why but these were decent opportunities that I was letting go.”
When asked about what others would think about his antics, he said, “It’s just a matter of the mind where I am always being honest with myself while also having a fun time. If I always do the right things with my heart and soul, there is nothing to worry about or regret.”
Talking about over the top energy that he carries with him everywhere, Ranveer said, “I have to shake things up to keep myself amused. I like to play high stakes in everything and because of that I like to do things that generally makes one very nervous or scared.”
Talk about the amount of self-love he has for himself, Ranveer Singh said, “My 2AM friend is my alter ego”
Talking frankly about his take on love and marriage with host Komal Nahta on the episode of Starry Nights 2.Oh!, this is what Ranveer Singh said, “A few years ago, I was rethinking my take on the institution of marriage.
