Ranveer Singh‘s last performance as Khilji in Padmaavat left all of us in awe of what this livewire can do on screen. It’s been almost 8 years in the industry for him and he has an impressive portfolio of films under his sleeve. He is one of the biggest stars in Bollywood and whats more, apparently the most energetic and enthusiastic person you’ll meet. In an email interview with IANS, Ranveer revealed what it is like to be where he is today. He was asked whether all of his stardom comes at a price.
Yes, but my point of view is that it is a small price to pay. I feel very lucky and blessed that I’m one of those people who is getting to do what I love to do for a living and I could not ask for more.
I’m doing good work, I’ve collaborated with the finest filmmakers in the business, I’m a part of some exciting stories that are there to be told and I’m a part of some of the largest projects. So, the work is good.
Along with being a professional in showbiz, there are a few things that come with it. You have to sacrifice a few things in your life. Your personal time, your sense of privacy… But like I said, the good counters the negatives for me. So, honestly, you will never find me complaining.
I do what I do without any ill will and malice towards anyone. I do the best I can possibly do for anyone; the hardest that I can possibly work towards anything. Whatever choices and decisions I make, I am honest to myself. So whenever there is criticism, I’m mature enough to know there will always be an opposing point of view and there will always be disagreement,” said the actor.
That is what clearly reflects in how he conducts himself, doesn’t it?
Fortunately, I have a very strong support system. My family, my parents, my friends, my team — they have seen me through various phases of life. When they talk to me, they address the person, not the actor, not the star… and I’m very fortunate to have people around me who keep it real
We love you Ranveer! Keep shining on!
