Ranveer Singh says there was a time when he thought he would never make it big in Bollywood as he had no filmy connections. “I had a struggle period, my first realisation of becoming a mainstream actor was perhaps a bit far-fetched. It was in the 10th standard. I sort of realised that my dream — after all — may not come true because most of the people around me were from a filmy lineage,” Ranveer said.
The actor looked back at his struggle in his initial days in his acting career during a chat show. “I thought to settle for something which seems within my reach. So, I decided to join a university in America for further studies and I was late to register for classes due to procrastination only to find out that the acting class for non-majors had a slot empty, so I enrolled myself in,” he added.
“I was told to perform on my first day by my instructor and everybody loved the performance, and that is when I realised I am a performer,” Ranveer said.
Ranveer, who made his debut in 2010 with the film “Band Baaja Baaraat” as a raw Delhi boy, proved his mettle in the various roles in films like “Ladies vs Ricky Bahl”, “Lootera”, “Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela”, “Gunday”, “Dil Dhadakne Do” and “Bajirao Mastani”. He added more power to his star status with “Padmaavat” and “Simmba”.
