Ranveer Singh: Stardom comes with a small price tag to pay
In his eight-year-long career in the Hindi film industry so far, Ranveer Singh has tasted immense success with some hit films like ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’, ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and ‘Padmaavat’ to his credit. In just a few years he has achieved what others couldn’t do in a decade.
And we as all know that stardom comes with its own price, but to our surprise, the actor says attaining this stardom comes with a ‘small’ price to pay. Bollywood’s livewire when asked if he agrees stardom comes with a price tag, Ranveer told IANS,”Yes, but my point of view is that it is a small price to pay. I feel very lucky and blessed that I’m one of those people who is getting to do what I love to do for a living and I could not ask for more. I’m doing good work, I’ve collaborated with the finest filmmakers in the business, I’m a part of some exciting stories that are there to be told and I’m a part of some of the biggest projects. So, the work is good.”
“Along with being a professional in showbiz, there are a few things that come with it. You have to sacrifice a few things in your life. Your personal time, your sense of privacy… But like I said, the good counters the negatives for me. So, honestly, you will never find me complaining,” added the actor.
With the kind of success that he is enjoying anyone would be on cloud nine, but our handsome lad has his feet firmly on the ground. And he credits his support system for that, “Fortunately, I have a very strong support system. My family, my parents, my friends, my team — they have seen me through various phases of life. When they talk to me, they address the person, not the actor, not the star… and I’m very fortunate to have people around me who keep it real,”
Ranveer understands that success and fame are fragile and transient. “Aaj hai kal nahi hai (It’s there today and not tomorrow). So you have to value your opportunities and keep working hard,” he added. The “lootera” star is grateful for the opportunities that have come his way in such a short span of time. But with success, there is also criticism. Ranveer, who has faced failure with films like ‘Kill Dil’, ‘Gunday‘ and ‘Befikre’, says he has no trouble in taking criticism in his stride as he always “operates from a very honest place in my heart”.
“I do what I do without any ill will and malice towards anyone. I do the best I can possibly do for anyone; the hardest that I can possibly work towards anything. Whatever choices and decisions I make, I am honest to myself. So whenever there is criticism, I’m mature enough to know there will always be an opposing point of view and there will always be disagreement,” said the actor.
The actor adds further, “I don’t reject criticism; I take it in my stride and do so quite easily.” Ranveer is gearing up for a quite interesting lineup of films, with projects like ‘Simmba’, ‘Gully Boy’ and ’83’ in his kitty.
