Ranbir doesn’t shy away from risks: Vikramjit Singh

Roy needed a ‘character’ and not a ‘lead actor’, says its director Vikramjit Singh, who feels that Ranbir Kapoor fit the bill for it due to his risk-taking ability.

Singh said: “When you write a film, you have a wish list of actors ready. The role in Roy is not a typical lead role. It’s a character. I have seen Ranbir’s work. He doesn’t shy away from taking risks. “We have seen him doing a film like Barfi! in which he didn’t have any dialogue. Also, his vision is different. He had faith in the film, and so he said yes to Roy.”

Roy also features Arjun Rampal and Jacqueline Fernandez. And while the duo has been promoting the film widely ahead of its release Feb 13, Ranbir has been missing from the scene so far. Singh says it was a strategy. The director also clarified that Roy is not a full-fledged Ranbir Kapoor movie.
