Ranveer Singh: I have a downtime to balance my fast-paced life
"At some point when my day ends, I switch off from the world and unwind," says Ranveer
Ranveer Singh's infectious energy is something people take inspiration from and his quirkiness makes him one of the most versatile actors in Bollywood. However, the Padmaavat-actor makes sure to switch off from the world and unwind as his day gets over to take a break from his fast-paced life.
"I do that every day. At some point when my day ends, I switch off from the world and unwind. I live a very fast-paced life, so it's very important for me to have some downtime. It helps me keep a balance," says Ranveer about the time when he sits back, relaxes and enjoys the normalcy of not being a Bollywood actor.
Ranveer, 33, is synonymous with being quirky when it comes to his fashion choices. He says in school too he was called "atrangi" (different) for his appearances.
"In my first two years, I did not make very honest choices when it came to my fashion sensibilities. I was still in the process of figuring out who I was and that reflected in my fashion choices. In my early days, the concept of appreciation and criticism was new to me.
"I remember in school too, I had my Mohawk, ear piercings, baggy jeans. I have always been this way. But over time, I have been in situations where I have had the chance to reflect. I don't worry about being judged or influenced by others' opinions. I have started making choices that are authentic, especially when it comes to fashion," says the actor.
After making his Bollywood debut with romantic comedy Band Baaja Baaraat, the actor proved his mettle in various films like Lootera, Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela, Dil Dhadakne Do and Bajirao Mastani.
Though he gave hits with different female stars in many films, his pairing with Deepika Padukone was appreciated a lot. The grapevine has it that Ranveer and Deepika are planning to wed in November in Italy. However, neither of them have spoken about it yet.
Ranveer's next projects are Rohit Shetty's Simbaa, Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy and Kabir Khan's 83, in which he will be portraying the role of former cricketer Kapil Dev.
"83 is a film based on the most glorious chapter in India's sporting history, the Cricket World Cup. It is my first biographical portrayal of an individual who is still out and about, doing such great work. It is an absolute honour to have been able to lead an ensemble of characters that are so significant in our history," says Ranveer.
The actor says he is thoroughly enjoying all the projects that he is currently working on.
"And I hope that the upcoming projects continue to charm the audience just like my past work has," adds Ranveer.
