Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh, who paved his way into the world of Bollywood courtesy Aditya Chopra has revealed that the talented director has never praised his work, in fact, he gets scolding from Adi for every silly mistake he commits.
Ranveer made his acting debut with YRF’s ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ followed by ‘Ladies vs Ricky Bahl’, and now will be seen in ‘Gunday’, from the very same production house.
“I feel lucky and fortunate to be working for Aditya. He is a great guy. But he has never said good things to me. He just scolds me. He just says good job and not more than that,” Ranveer said in an interview here.
The movie ‘Gunday’ is set in the backdrop of Kolkata in the ’70s and it deals with two friends Bikram and Bala as they go from being small-time coal thieves to the black-marketing mafia. Ranveer’s character, Bikram, is slightly short tempered, like an angry young man.
“I don’t know if my character is similar or inspired by anyone. Somebody who works closely with YRF said to me that he gets a vibe of young Mr Amitabh Bachchan by looking at me in ‘Gunday’. It is a huge compliment,” he said.
“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. The cast and crew of the film were all youngsters so the atmosphere was energetic,” he added.
