Energy, exuberance, effervescence and enthusiasm. Bollywood star Ranveer Singh has emerged synonymous with these adjectives, and he says it’s the “Take it easy” policy that helps him to live each day as if it’s his last.
“I have an immense love for life, I have a great zeal for life, I have a great lust for life, you could say, and therefore I live every day like it’s my last and I do everything like it’s either the first time I’m doing it or the last time I’m doing it. So, I really go after it with everything I’ve got,” said Ranveer.
“I try and live in the moment as much as possible, and I think essentially that might very well be the secret of my energy - high energy,” he said, looking cool in a pair of funky shades. Often, due to this perception about Ranveer and his ability to take over a stage whenever he performs live or makes an appearance for a TV show, one would think he is a better performer than an actor - even though one knows how he has showcased his versatility across films as varied as a Band Baaja Baaraat, Lootera, Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, Dil Dhadakne Do and Bajirao Mastani.
What does he say about that? “There are different kinds of performances - you do different characters, you’re a part of different stories, each filmmaker has a certain energy that the character requires, you know, it’s different. Even acting is a kind of performance, so even in life when you’re interacting with people, you could say that you’re playing a character. When you’re interacting with your mother, you’re playing the son, when you’re interacting with your sister, you’re playing the brother, so performance is there at every level in life. There are just different modes, different energies,” explained the 31-year-old, who is an entertainer at heart.
