Love him or hate him, you have to admit one thing – the energy and dedication with which Ranveer Singh does everything is extremely commendable. He’s one of the only actors who has managed to create a splash even with his endorsement deals; the commercials he’s done are practically short films that you want to watch, not ads that you just skip over when they air on TV.
Well, it turns out that there is a particular reason behind the enthusiasm with which he approaches every thing, both big and small. And honestly, it’s a philosophy that we could all do well to apply in our daily life! So if you’ve ever seen Ranveer on television or in a magazine or in person and wondered, ‘How the f**k does he do it?!’ well, here’s your answer from the man himself!
“I don’t do anything just for the sake of it. For me, I don’t even live my life for the sake of it. Just because I have this life and I’m going to live it – no. I have to do something with everything. I’m not really old, and I’m not really wise; I’ve just started a career, but in my limited experience I understand the value of opportunities and the fragility of life in general. When I hurt my back in Lootera, I was lying there not knowing if I could dance or do action ever again. I couldn’t even stand on my own two feet. When I had dengue, the doctors had pretty much said, ‘you were incredibly fit going into the disease, and that’s why you were able to fight it off. You pretty much hit rock bottom for 24 hours and we would have put you in the ICU and you would have been fighting for your life.’ I lost my best friend last month very tragically. That’s why I don’t take life and life’s opportunities for granted.
So for me, every ad that I do is the last ad I’ll ever do. Every movie I do is the last movie I’ll do. Every cameo I do is the last cameo I’ll ever do. Every shot that I give is the last shot I’ll ever give. Who knows what can happen tomorrow? This is something I’ve always believed in, but my experiences keep reiterating and validating it for me. I don’t even plan for the future. Whatever it is, it is in the now. That’s why I go after every little thing with that much zeal.”
