Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani presents Ranveer Singh in a never-before-seen avatar, portraying a gym-loving, abs-flaunting Delhi guy deeply in love with a Bengali girl, portrayed by Alia Bhatt. To embrace this challenging role, the versatile actor shed his Bombay boy persona and sought assistance from Delhi-based content creator Yuvraj Dua to perfect the mannerisms and accents of a West Delhi boy.
Yuvraj Dua shares insights on working with Ranveer Singh on Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani; says, “There was also a lot of improvisation”
In a chat with Indian Express, Yuvraj revealed that Ranveer prepared for his character in 12 days with his help. He said, “I had gone to Mumbai and 12 days before the movie started I and Ranveer sat together. I didn't have to prepare him, we just talked. He would ask about my life story and I would ask about his. So, what happens is that his mind started grasping automatically that a certain word should be pronounced like this and another word should be like that. There is no dictionary that tells how to spell words in a certain accent that ladai ko kalesh bolna hai ya bhasad bolna hai.”
Dua continued, “What he had done was that he made me very free and comfortable and made me feel that I really belong (here). This was just a free-flowing conversation, and we discussed the specifics of the film after that. Ranveer and I both knew when dialogue was not giving that kind of a punch. Wherever he felt he would ‘ye bata kaise bolenge‘. So, we would work on it, modify it. There was also a lot of improvisation we did on the sets.”
As the conversation progressed further, the 24-year-old influencer shared a special memory. He recalled that he had stayed at Ranveer’s home when he visited Mumbai. “Since I was in Mumbai for a few days, maybe over a week so I told him ki itna time ho gaya Delhi se aaye hue, cricket bat nahi touch kiya (It has been long since I played cricket),” said Yuvraj.
He further added, "He didn't say anything to me, he called a guy, and whispered something in his ear. A few moments later the guy came back with a bat. Ranveer gave the bat to me and said let's play some shots. It has been a long time since I did 83. Let's play. So, he gave me the bat and then told me that Kapil paaji had personally gifted him that bat. I had goosebumps that I am holding a bat gifted by Kapil Dev, its grip is in my hands.”
Coming back to the film, directed by Karan Johar, it has released today, July 28. Besides the Gully Boy stars, it also features Jaya Bachchan, Shabana Azmi and Dharmendra.
