When Ranveer was asked to act himself
Actor Ranveer Singh says that during the shoot of one of the sequences of his film Befikre, the director Aditya Chopra observed that he was acting like Anil Kapoor and told him to act like himself.
“Befikre shoot was going on in Paris and Adi (Chopra) sir cut a shot, came from behind the monitor and said ‘Yaar, you have started acting like Anil Kapoor. After Dil Dhadakne Do there has been a deep impact of his on you. So now in the next take, you give Ranveer’s shot, and not Anil’s’,” Ranveer said at the screening of Anil’s television show ‘24’.
Ranveer even imitated Anil’s expressions and mannerisms at the event and posed in the ‘24’ look with Anil.
“Actually he’s the biggest mastikhor of all, when I see him I get into masti mood or looking at me, he comes into masti mood; it’s just always a riot. How can I explain what happens after I see him? I really am in love , so infatuated by him,”he said. Ranveer added, “He is one of the reasons why I ever wanted to become an actor. He is a legend, an icon, he is one of the most talented, most handsome men to grace our silver screen. I am such a big fan of him that I am always excited when it’s anything related to him.
On the other hand, Anil had previously said that he would want to see his daughter Sonam being paired opposite Ranveer.
