Ahead of his upcoming film Jayeshbhai Jordaar, Ranveer Singh has opened up about why he seizes opportunities for on-screen transformations.
Taking to social media Ranveer said: “For me, the best thing about being an actor is that you can live so many lives and experience so much because each character that I choose to play are remarkably different from one another. When people saw Band Baaja Baaraat, they felt for the longest time that I was a boy who was born and brought up in Delhi. This has happened many times during the course of my 11 year career and that to me is the biggest compliment because I like to convince people that I can transform myself into anyone.”
The superstar is clear that he doesn’t want to get typecast in the industry and among audiences. He, thus, picks his projects extremely strategically to wow audiences. He continued, “I’m deeply inspired by the shape-shifting, chameleon-like actors across the world like Daniel Day-Lewis. So, I look forward to metamorphosis on the big screen with every film. I have done this since my first time to my last release 83, in which I became the legendary Kapil Dev.”
Singh added, “I have a personal ambition to never be typecast and it’s a tough one but I choose my scripts quite cleverly. Jayeshbhai Jordaar presented me with a huge opportunity to play a character with no reference point all over again. I think I really manifest these roles into my life.”
