People shared their skepticism over casting Ranveer to Aditya Chopra
In a complete departure from his latest outing as a Maratha warrior in Bajirao Mastani, actor Ranveer Singh will sport a chocolate boy look for his next film Befikre. Eanveer was launched by Aditya Chopra's home production company - Yash Raj Films - with Band Baaja Baarat. "It will be full chocolate boy look. Last Sunday, was the first day of work for Befikre... We did the costume trials and all. I don't know what my look exactly will be in the film," Ranveer said.
The 30-year-old actor said lot of people questioned Aditya's decision to launch Ranveer in 2010 in Band... "At a time when I was launched there were enough people to tell Adi that he has lost it... What did he see in me? He said he saw something in me and so he will launch me as the first boy as solo hero lead that Yash Raj Films have never done," he said.
The Ram Leela star owes his career to the producer-director. "I was out of no where and this guy had faith in me. During the first audition of Band Baaja Baarat he saw my entire career unfolding... So, he saw a potential in me in the first shot. I owe my career to him," he said.
Ranveer was surprised that Aditya asked him to prepare for Befikre in three months time. "Bajirao Mastani was a mammoth of a film I had three weeks to prepare and for this film ('Befikre') which is a light romantic film Aditya Chopra wants me to prepare for this film for three months," he said.
"I asked Adi (Aditya Chopra) do we really need to prep that much. It's a light breezy romantic film that we are going to shoot in Paris. As soon as my hair grows back to a satisfactory length we will start shooting. After the intense year that I have had doing a light romance," he added.
