Don’t you think the angry young man role played by Ranveer Singh in Gunday is similar in many ways to all the roles that Amitabh Bachchan once used to play in all of his movies in the 80’s? A lot of people are also thinking similarly we hear, and recently, when Ranveer Singh was asked about that, he was only very much pleased as anyone else would also be, on being compared to someone like Big B although he couldn’t really see it that way.
“I don’t know if my character is similar or inspired by anyone. Somebody who works closely with Yash Raj Films said to me that he gets a vibe of young Mr Amitabh Bachchan by looking at me in Gunday. It is a huge compliment. Mr Bachchan is more than the reason for me to become an actor. I wanted to become actor because I used to watch Hindi films and was inspired by him” Ranveer Singh said, talking about it.
The fact that Gunday was set in the 70’s might also be another reason why Ranveer Singh looks like Amitabh, probably because he was also dressed similarly, with the mustache and all of that. We’ve got to wait until the 14th February when the movie releases to find out if he actually lived upto that comparison.
