Ranveer Singh is known to submerge himself entirely in his roles since he played Peshwa Bajirao in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s directorial epic Bajirao Mastani. Ranveer completely shaved his head, learnt the Marathi language and became a killing machine physically in order to portray the part and since than he decided to dwell completely into the roles which demand that kind of preparation. Ranveer again went into Allaudin Khilji mode for Padmaavat and beefed up his horses unbelievably so that he can look like one mammoth of a man from 14th century who conquered half the Asia.
Dark side of that character is yet to be revealed as film awaits the release on 25 January but Ranveer has already gone into Zoya Akhtar’s next film Gully Boy. Ranveer will be essaying the role of a suburban Mumbai street rapper who wants to make it big in the music scene but his lack of resource is incredible. Ranveer shrank himself down to the bare bones for this role as he can’t be a greek good looking man who is helpless in life. Ranveer shifted the shape of his body and it as close as it gets to Christian Bale’s The Machinist transformation.
Ranveer is breaking all the barriers and milestones of acting in Hindi cinema by being a part of some incredible films and film makers. Ranveer is basically a Mumbai boy but for his first film Band Baaja Baarat he went to Delhi and researched for his role resulting of which he learnt a whole new dimension of Hindi which is spoken strictly in Delhi dialect. For his performance in Ramleela he sat with a dialect coach and learnt the Gujarati accent of speaking Hindi and got it absolutely right. Alia Bhatt is the female protagonist in Gully Boy and Kalki Koechlin has also joined the cast in the role of a rapper.
