Ranveer Singh is one of the most entertaining actors. He is also quite filmy. This filmy side of him is however, not new. In fact, it was a part of him way before he made his debut with the 2010 film Band Baaja Baaraat. He was so much in love with films that he was once suspended from school for a day because he was caught listening to the song Chaiyya Chaiyya featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Malaika Arora from Dil Se in class. Ranveer was obsessed with the song at the time. Isn’t that such a cute story? And to be fair, we don't really blame him. The song was such a rage back then and is still loved by many.
The actor had recently spoken about growing up in the 90s. “I am a 90s kid. Born in 1985, 90s era is what defines me. Following everything from movies, music, pop culture, fashion and those are my formative years. Whatever you subscribe to, stays with you forever. I remember watching Zabaan Sambhalke, Dekh Bhai Dekh. Basically, I am TV ka bachcha, a product of television, a TV kid. When kids were outside, I was in front of the idiot box!”
In a past interview, Ranveer Singh was asked about comparisons with SRK. He was all praise for the superstar. He had said, “There is no comparison at all between me and SRK. His contribution to Hindi cinema is unparalleled and unmatched. There has never been anyone like him. I was hanging out with him yesterday at an award function. We hung out for a while and he is so humble and grounded. The way he used to meet me when I was a newcomer, he meets me the same way even today. There is equal warmth and love. We don’t discuss films or performances. We talk random rubbish. I can’t tell you what we spoke but I can say that SRK is a riot to be with. I have worked for five years and he has worked for 25 years. That is five times the number of years I have worked. So there is no comparison.”
