Ranveer Singh to surprise fans with Zoya's 'Dil Dhadakne Do'
Actor Ranveer Singh says that he is very excited to be working with Zoya Akhtar and that his performance in the film will be a surprise for everyone.
Ranveer was quoted in a daily saying, “I’m super excited to work with Zoya as I believe she’s one of the most talented directors in the industry. Moreover it’s a part that really pushes me as an actor and gives me a chance to showcase an aspect of my performance that will surprise my fans.”
Ranveer plays the main lead in the Zoya film ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’, which will also see Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and Farhan Akhtar. A buzz goes that Ranveer and Priyanka will be seen as siblings, along with Anushka and Farhan.
Some rumors doing the rounds also said Ranveer had signed an exclusive contract with Zoya, since she wanted to keep Ranveer’s looks for the film under wraps and so, he had signed a contract with the production house stating he will not shoot for any other film until Zoya’s film was completed.
But, the actor’s spokesperson said in an official statement that, “He plays the main lead in the film, however, there is no exclusivity clause in the contract though he’ll be shooting for over 75-80 days of the total 90 day schedule of the film.”
The spokesperson was also reported saying, “After back-to-back hits the normally fussy Ranveer has also finally opened up to doing endorsements and has recently signed on several A-list brands. And the Excel team has been kind enough to work not only their but also his co-actors schedules around to help accommodate him as most brands want to shoot with him again for follow up campaigns in the big festive season.”
According to reports, Zoya’s film will be shot across Europe, Turkey, Spain, Italy and France.
In 2010, Ranveer began his acting career with the lead role in the Yash Raj Films project ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’. The romantic comedy saw the actor as a Delhi guy called Bittoo Sharma. The movie was a commercial hit. Ranveer’s role of Bittoo earned praises from critics all around, too. His performance in the character won him the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut at the 56th Filmfare Awards.
The Bollywood actor then experimented with roles and was seen as a con artist in the 2011 film ‘Ladies vs Ricky Bahl’, a disguised robber in ‘Lootera’ in 2013 and a Gujarati boy in last year’s ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’.
