I thought I was the best actor in the world: Ranveer Singh
The 31-year-old star says, in his initial days, he felt he 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 I am hoping to explore them more."
Ranveer, who will next be seen in Aditya Chopra's directorial venture "<g data-gr-id="170">Befikre</g>," whose trailer was launched here at the Eiffel Tower, says he considers himself fortunate to get some great opportunities, which contribute <g data-gr-id="168">in</g> his growth.
"I used to be a very different kind of actor, I am not that 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 every film. I <g data-gr-id="176">am blessed</g> that every new film has something new for me to learn from."
Ranveer received a lot of praise for filmmaker Vikramaditya 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 got critical acclaim for 'Lootera', it makes you gain a little bit of <g data-gr-id="179">self confidence</g> in your own abilities and then you can play with your craft." .
