Ranveer Singh Says Thought Would Never Make it Big in Bollywood


Ranveer Singh says there was a time when he thought he would never make it big in Bollywood as he had no filmy connections. “I had a struggle period; my first realization of becoming a mainstream actor was perhaps a bit far-fetched. It was in the 10th standard. I kind of realized that my dream – after all – may not come true because most of the people around me were from a filmy lineage,” Ranveer said.

But the last year was definitely great for Ranveer Singh. He was highly praised for his role as Khilji in Padmaavat in the beginning of 2018 and then ended the year with a bang in and as Simmba. And of course, he got married to Deepika Padukone.

He entered the world of films with Band Baaja Baraat and in less than a decade of his presence in the Hindi Film Industry, Ranveer Singh has established himself as an irreplaceable asset.

He made his debut in 2010 with the film Band Baaja Baaraat as a raw Delhi boy, proved his mettle in the various roles in films like Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, Lootera, Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela, Gunday, Dil Dhadakne Do and Bajirao Mastani.

He said, “I thought to settle for something which seems within my reach. So, I decided to join a university in America for further studies and I was late to register for classes due to procrastination only to find out that the acting class for non-majors had a slot empty, so I enrolled myself in,” he added.

“I was told to perform on my first day by my teacher and everybody loved the performance, and that is when I realized I am a performer.”
