Mumbai: At a time when audience is lapping up Hollywood superhero films, Ranveer Singh, who has lent his voice for the Hindi version of Deadpool 2, has been scouting for ideas in this genre and is hopeful that India will soon have its own "bona fide superhero".
I have been exploring Indian superhero subjects: Ranveer Singh
The Padmaavat star says that though the subjects he has been exploring in the superhero genre have not materialised yet, the day is not far when the country will get its "true blue Indian superhero."
He says he is also interested in doing films in English and is waiting for the right opportunity.
He agrees that his personality – quirky and energetic – matches with the Marvel superhero.
"I remember when the first Deadpool came out, a lot of people identify my personality with the personality of Deadpool. I think that brand of humour matches mine, somewhere or the other," he says.
"Deadpool immediately became my favourite when I saw the first part." he said.
In the Hindi version of the David Leitch-directed sequel, Ranveer will be heard channelising his "inner Deadpool" by being the voice of Reynolds, whose work he deeply admires ever since he saw the Hollywood star's sitcom, 'Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place'. Earlier this week, Ranveer hosted a special screening of Deadpool 2 in Mumbai, which was also attended his parents and sister.
