Ranveer Singh was a part of Rajeev Masand‘s 2015 Actor’s Round Table along with Akshay Kumar, Varun Dhawan and Anil Kapoor. The entire video was great to watch but obviously there were a highlights that made us laugh real hard. One of these instances was Ranveer’s first meeting with Raveena Tandon and Akshay Kumar. Here’s what transpired –
It was at SNDT college where Akshay and Raveena were shooting for a movie called Keemat. My cousins had come from Canada, this is like early ’90’s when Akshay sir had a purple Lancer and all my cousins wanted to do in Mumbai was meet Akshay Kumar. So my father had to make calls, find a contact, locate the manager for the shooting. Obviously, even I had to meet Akshay Kumar. When we reached there, some song shooting was happening in the rain where Raveena was looking literally ravishing. I had never seen anything so beautiful in my life. I was short and fat, with broken teeth and a mohawk and there’s this rain sequence. Sir (Akshay) had worn this shirt open at his chest and Raveena ji was in white and I was staring at her like this –
She obviously was not very comfortable with me looking at her like that, so she asked the security guy to escort me away. For me that was shattering, I was heartbroken because I was told to leave the set, then I feel this hand on my shoulder. I’m almost in tears but I look up and I see this shining aura behind this man (points to Akshay Kumar), he looks at me and says – ‘Hey, I like your haircut,. And I was like ‘Yeaaaaa’. He obviously saw that I was heartbroken because I was asked to leave and he just came and did that much and I got a picture with him and I was like ‘man, one day I’m going to be like that guy!’
This is so cool!
BTW, I think this is the song Ranveer is talking about –
