Ranveer Singh, who usually sports a grungy look with a stubble, has donned a clean-shaven and neat look in his forthcoming movie Kill Dil But he says his character is not metrosexual in nature.
Ranveer tries to experiment with his looks film after film -- whether it’s with a moustache or with his haircut.
Talking about the look of his Kill Dil character, he said: ‘The funda behind it was that he will be clean-shaven with a ‘katora’ cut and red hair. I know that it’s not my best look, but my priority is to look like my character rather than look good.
‘There are some films in which the glam quotient is very high, but the Kill Dil character is very deglam. He is not metrosexual guy. In fact, he comes from a low class background.’
Ranveer says his character undergoes changes when a rich girl, essayed by Parineeti Chopra, enters his life.‘She teaches him the finer things of life. It’s a very soft character, and (director) Shaad Ali was telling me that after Gunday and Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, we need to show your softer, innocent and endearing side,’ said the energetic actor.
Ranveer also had to put on some weight for the role ‘because in Gunday, my face looked hard as I had more muscle and less body fat at that time’. Kill Dil, releasing on Children’s Day Nov 14, also features Govinda and Ali Zafar.
He also has a clean-shaven pete for Bajirao Mastani, says his co-star Deepika Padukone, his rumoured ladylove, loved the look.
Asked how Deepika reacted to his new look, Ranveer said: ‘Deepika loved the look. I had shown her my pictures in costume. She is very happy and excited about joining the shoot of the film... it will happen within a couple of months.’ Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Bajirao Mastani also featured Priyanka Chopra in a key role.
