This year was dismal as I lost my friend and my grandad: Ranveer Singh


This year was dismal as I lost my friend and my grandad: Ranveer Singh

With Bajirao Mastani set to release on Dec 18, Ranveer Singh still seems reluctant to get out of his character, and is sporting the oh-so-manly mooch look at all the promotional activities. In a recent interaction with a leading daily, Ranveer shared how the role he has essayed in the film has affected his personal life and relationships and the lowest phase he has been through this year; suffering his grandfather’s loss.

On being questioned if the actor is not as emotionally vulnerable as he was earlier, Ranveer said, “No, not as vulnerable. Some things will never change. I will always be oversensitive, over attached person. I have had a tough year personally. Lot of my happiness comes from my physicality. Here I prepared myself to be a killer machine and one mishap shattered my shoulder making me stay at home for two months. For me, that was a big blow. The day I feel physically fit is the happiest for me because I feel I can achieve anything. And when I was at home, not being able to even do the basic things, I went into a strange phase. I needed a professional motivational speaker to come and talk to me to get me out of that phase. This year was dismal also because I lost my best friend under very tragic circumstances and then I lost my grandfather who I was very close to. Furthermore, playing Bajirao was emotionally draining because it tapped into certain emotional areas of my life that I didn’t want to revisit and I had to bring out those uncomfortable emotions and splash them out on the screen.”

The actor added, “I have evolved a bit since doing this movie. I became emotionally stronger, wiser and little more mature after I came out of that. I have grown up a little more.”

We wish Ranveer has a successful run at the box-office with BM, and his hard work pays off well!
