EXCLUSIVE: Ranveer Singh reveals he said ‘NO’ to a self-destructive character
While discussing about the prep for his character of Kapil Dev in ’83, Ranveer Singh spoke to exclusively to Bollywood Hungama about a self-destructive character that was offered to him while he was training for the role of a cricketer. However, the actor denied the offer. Speaking about it, Ranveer said, “So I was training I lived like an athlete. And there was, at the time that I was offered ‘83, there was another offer on the table, very exciting offer as well. But that was of a very self-destructive character - smoking, drinking. I didn't want to be that at that time, that was not the life choice. I wanted to but I didn't feel like I wanted to inhabit that character. I would much rather be an athlete. So I chose that I live a healthy life, diet, training, exercise, mental preparation, everything, try and live those lives as much as possible.”
The actor’s next Jayeshbhai Jordaar, also starring Shalini Pandey, Boman Irani and Ratna Pathak Shah, hit the big screens a day ago, on May 13, 2022.
