When Ranveer Singh dressed up as Anil Kapoor to bag a role in ‘Mr India 2’

Ranveer Singh recently visited trade analyst Komal Nahta’s show ‘Starry Nights 2’ and there the actor revealed some interesting facts about himself. The actor speaking to Nahta unraveled that he once dressed up as Anil Kapoor to get a role in Mr India 2, “During my struggling days, it was rumoured that Shekhar Kapur was making Mr India 2 and I landed up at Shanoo Sharma’s house dressed up as Anil Kapoor’s character Arun,” he said.

He also called Rakhi Sawant a rock star. He asked Komal to name the worst celebrity he could interview and Komal named Rakhi, triggering Ranveer to say “Rakhi is a rock star! Rakhi, I love you.”

Ranveer also talked about his family on the show. He calls his sister as his ‘Other Mother’. “Her nature I guess, she is very caring, very motherly and loving. She always treats me like a child. She would spend the money she earned to buy chocolates for me. Hence, I cannot even call her my elder sister, she is my second mother,” the actor said.

While speaking about his initial journey in films, Ranveer revealed that the kind of films he loved were the ones in which the hero was the king and the film was larger than life. “Big muscles, big guns. Matlab mujhe bus yahi karna hai.”

He said, “I went to university and as usual I was late for everything and late for registering for class and then there was one seat for acting for non-majors. I have already acted in school and college, so I was like I can do this. The instructor asked us to perform and I did that, everyone in the class was impressed. And this is it, I am a performer.”

Ranveer is all set for his upcoming movie Gully Boy which is helmed by Zoya Akhtar. The movie is slated to release on February 14 and it also stars Alia Bhatt.
