From making a promising debut with"Band Baaja Baaraat" to giving a critically-acclaimed performance in "Bajirao Mastani", Ranveer Singh has shown tremendous growth as an actor, but according to the star himself, he has finally deconstructed his learning of the craft. The 31-year-old star says, in his initial days, he felt the knew it all, but now feels like he is just a beginner.
"The more films I do, the more I understand that I don't know anything. Every time I go on a set, I feel as if I have forgotten everything. "When I started (with) 'Band Baaja Baraat', I thought I knew everything and I was the best actor in the world. But it's happening in reverse now," Ranveer told PTI in an interview.
The actor says he has now become a student of the craft. "These days when I do films, I feel I don't know anything. I have understood that this craft is limitless and the possibilities in the realm of acting are limitless and Iam hoping to explore them more."
Ranveer, who will next be seen in Aditya Chopra's directorial venture "Befikre," whose trailer was launched hereat the Eiffel Tower, says he considers himself fortunate toget some great opportunities, which contribute in his growth. "I used to be a very different kind of actor, I am notthat actor anymore and not that person anymore.
I have changed a lot as an actor and as a person. I have grown for good. "I am not the Ranveer of 'Band Baaja Baaraat' or 'Lootera'. I find myself learning something new with everyfilm. I am blessed that every new film has something new forme to learn from." Ranveer received a lot of praise for filmmakerVikramaditya Motwane's "Lootera" and the actor says that recognition made him more confident about his abilities.
"When you get validation, which for me started when I gotcritical acclaim for 'Lootera', it makes you gain a little bitof self confidence in your own abilities and then you can playwith your craft."
