Aditya Chopra scolds me: Ranveer Singh

Actor Ranveer Singh, who got his break in the Bollywood from Aditya Chopra, says the shy producer has never praised his work and rather scolded him, reports PTI. Ranveer made his acting debut with YRF’s ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ followed by ‘Ladies vs Ricky Bahl’, and now he will be seen in ‘Gunday’, another film from the same production house.

“I feel lucky and fortunate to be working for Aditya. He is a great guy. But he has never said good things to me. He just scolds me. He just says good job and not more than that,” Ranveer said.

‘Gunday’ is set in Kolkata of the ’70s and it deals with two friends Bikram and Bala as they go from being small-time coal thieves to the black-marketing mafia.

Ranveer’s character, Bikram, is slightly held-back, like an angry young man. “I don’t know if my character is similar or inspired by anyone. Somebody who works closely with YRF said to me that he gets a vibe of young Mr Amitabh Bachchan by looking at me in ‘Gunday’. It is a huge compliment,” he said.

He is also excited about sharing the screen-space with another veteran whom he admires – Govinda – in upcoming film ‘Kill Dil’. “I have a special bond with him. He treats me like his son. I am huge fan of his.”
