… as in to the violin. The actor is learning to play the instrument along with keeping himself busy with films and family

He’s garnered a lot of appreciation for his work in Hrithik Roshan-starrer Kaabil, but it’s not easy to satisfy Ronit Roy. He’s already immersed himself into his next with Farhan Akhtar. “The year started with me returning from London, back from a family holiday and the release of Kaabil. I am happy with the response it got. But now I am in action mode again. The shooting for Lucknow Central has already started. I am also resuming shooting of Munna Michael with Tiger Shroff,” he informs.

For the uninitiated, Ronit has started taking violin lessons and it’s keeping him really busy. “Thankfully, there is no dearth of things to keep me busy. My family, my kids anyways kept me busy. But now I am also learning saxophone and violin, both these instruments take a lot of my time,” he says.

Violin is one of the most musical romantic instruments. Point this out to him and he quips, “Starry nights and love poems are okay to begin with. But to keep romance alive in a relationship takes a lot of caring. There are lifestyle changes, you may have to adapt to your partner’s life, there are a lot of sacrifices to be made. Love is not just romantic notes, and red roses.”

He adds, “There are various books and films depicting various stages of love. Hence one must have one’s own clear interpretation and not mimic what one reads of views. The reality is that there is no fairytale but with love and caring you can turn your life into a charmed life in the relationship space.”

We have been missing Ronit on TV; he says that though he’s interested to come back, there’re no great scripts in sight. Moreover, he’s also busy with films commitments. “On the work front, some very interesting and promising projects are in store. The rest of the year is a very promising mix of some very good niche scripts and big commercial films. The quest to do something good on TV this year also remains,” he says.
