Most of the times the actor is still in disbelief that he has grown into such an acclaimed actor. It was years back, when he raided Shaad Ali’s party, that YRF’s casting director Shanoo Sharma spotted him.

His first film released way back in 2012 – Band Baaja Baarat and his journey since then has been irreversible. Having films like Raam – Leela, Padmaavat and Bajirao Mastani in his kitty, and having tested his versatility as an actor immensely – Ranveer is a true superstar today!

“I ought to be pinching myself sitting in front of people. I wake up everyday thinking that I am living a dream. I was this young kid obsessed with Hindi movies. I struggled for three years in Mumbai, with my portfolio in my hand. I went through the routine drill. I made my own luck. I put myself in that position that where that good wave comes and you can flow with it,” he said recalling his journey and struggle.

“Ranbir Kapoor said no to Band Baaja Baraat. YRF was looking for a new face I got a call and I knew this was the opportunity I was waiting for. I kept my face safe and didn’t do modeling or music videos. And then I got a massive launch, essentially for an ‘outsider’, opposite a reasonably recognisable star Anushka Sharma,” he continued.

Talking about his mentor Aditya Chopra he said, ““Aditya Chopra realised star system was killing the industry at that time. He realised the need of the hour was to give actors break on the basis of talent and not legacy. He started with Anushka followed by me. And mine was a great example. A leading man suddenly born out of sheer auditioning process.”

“When I first came to into the limelight I was very nervous. I was famous three days after my first film released. I didn’t grew up around anybody famous so I was confused how to deal with this beast. This fame or stardom hit me like a truck. I was struggling with that hit for three years till the time I got critical acclaim for ‘Lootera’ and critical/commercial success of Ram-Leela,” he continued.

The actor is currently shooting for Gully Boy with Alia Bhatt, and the film’s shoot recently completed 50 days.
