He has played myriad roles ever since his Bollywood debut in 2010 with “Band Baaja Baaraat”. Actor Ranveer Singh, currently busy with Rohit Shetty’s “Simmba”, credits his career in the Hindi film industry to his love for masala entertainers.
“Mainstream Hindi films, masala entertainers are the reason I ever wanted to become an actor. When I was a kid, I used to only watch these kind of films. It has been my education, it has been a part of my upbringing.
“So, it is a huge deal for me that I am finally doing something that is a true blue masala entertainer,” said Ranveer
In “Simmba”, Ranveer will be seen playing a flamboyant policeman Sangram Bhalerao. He feels he has earned this opportunity. “Having put in the work over few years, I’m getting to be a leading man in Rohit sir’s film. I regard him to be the finest proponent in the masala genre.The ‘Simmba’ journey so far has really been an enriching experience for me.”
This will be the first time Ranveer will be trying his hands at mass comedy. “It’s like every flavour is touched upon and celebrated whether it is comedy, drama, dance, action everything rolled into one. It’s is like a kaleidoscopic showcase of my ability as a performer and it’s really so fulfilling,” he said. Ranveer calls “Simmba” his biggest film given the “very large scale” that it is mounted on.
