Ranveer Singh’s single point agenda is to be the best entertainer
With the massive success of Pamdaavat and Simmba, Ranveer Singh has now delivered a total of Rs. 500 crore net at the box-office in India in a single year. While the actor is obviously encouraged by the response, he wants to let it from getting to his head and wishes to only focus on ‘entertaining’ the audience instead.
In a recent interview with a leading daily, the actor said, “I’m uncomfortable in these scenarios, in these discussions, people discuss money and I start scratching my head. I feel I should protect myself now more than ever before from these sorts of things. I find myself receding because I don’t know where this will take me, whether it will colour my thinking because I have been a certain way. So far it has worked for me, and I hope to continue as the same kind of artiste and very committed to protecting that integrity that I have towards my art, craft, and I don’t want to start with making choices that I have to do with anything other than honesty, that will be the death of me.”
He also stated that he wishes to avoid the number games from getting to his head. Ranveer stated, “I have followed a certain ethos that has brought me to this position and I don’t want to change that and don’t want to get into making choices thinking when we do that film, it seems like a Rs 300 cr prospect. It is not about the numbers for me, it is basically to entertain people, to entertain as many as i can and as much as possible. I keep that purpose of life, i’m an entertainer and I want to be the best entertainer. It’s a single point agenda for me and a personal ambition.”
The actor will next be seen in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy. The film will also marks Ranveer Singh’s first collaboration with Alia Bhatt. The makers recently released the trailer after which the hype surrounding the film has gone through the roof. Gully Boy is slated to release on 14th February this year.
