Superstar Ranveer Singh is hands down the best thing to have happened to Bollywood. In his career spanning just over a decade, Ranveer has established himself as the biggest actor of his generation and the baton to lead Bollywood to newer heights has been passed on to him. Ranveer is dubbed as a shape-shifter who can do anything – from Bajirao, to Alauddin Khilji in ‘Padmaavat’, to Murad Ahmed in ‘Gully Boy’, and now as Kapil Dev in ’83’ – he has proven that he is a chameleon who can get into the skin of any character. Ranveer has made his place as one of the best actors in the history of Indian cinema with ’83’ in which he has dissolved on screen and transformed into the legendary Indian cricketer and captain Kapil Dev.
Ranveer Singh is arguably the only actor who hasn’t been typecast by the industry because of his sheer range as an artiste. He has brought to life characters without any reference point and given Indian audiences worldwide some of the biggest cinematic moments in the last 10 years. About how he has managed to not be stereotyped on screen, Ranveer reveals, “My constant endeavor is such that you cannot put me in a box. You cant define me. I don’t wish to be defined because I feel defining something my its fundamental nature would be limiting me. As a creative person I would like to believe that I have no limits. That I the possibilities within my craft is limitless, that they be infinite.”
He adds, “There is no end to how much I can explore and how many different people I can become. I hope I continue that and if I keep doing the same thing, then I am stagnating. I should probably take a sabbatical, gather more life experiences, put more different characters into my jholi and then come back to work.”
