Ranveer Singh’s reported wedding to Deepika Padukone has been generating a lot of buzz, and every couple of days a new speculation arises.
In a recent interview, Ranveer addressed the rumours of his supposed nuptials saying that his focus in life right now is acting and films.
“Right now, I am focused on the work that I am doing in films. I am doing back-to-back films. I’ve been very blessed to have some really amazing projects at hand and I tremendously value these opportunities,” Ranveer said.
“I want to do my bit to contribute towards the filmmaking process and to try and make the best films possible. So, my focus in life right now is acting and films,” added the actor.
Speculations surrounding Ranveer and Deepika’s wedding have been going on since long and most reports claim that the two will tie the knot next month in November. It has also been rumoured that their wedding will take place at Lake Como in Italy and will be a 4 day affair. However, the couple is yet to make an official announcement.
Ranveer made his Bollywood debut in 2010 as a raw Delhi boy with Band Baaja Baaraat. Since then he has played a variety of characters, the most recent being that of Alauddin Khilji in the period drama Padmaavat. Currently, he is working on Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, Rohit Shetty’s Simmba and Kabir Khan’s 83. However, Ranveer said that finding a place in Bollywood was a tough task.
“Trying to get a break in a very insulated mainstream Hindi film industry was a great and big challenge. Then to try and shoulder big films and larger-than-life characters in parts that have… myriad layered emotions to play… some requiring a level of maturity and evolution. Those are some significant challenges that I have faced,” he said, responding to a question on the challenges he faced while making a name for himself.
On whether he allows himself to feel the pressure of failing the expectations of others, he said, “I actually never feel pressure because I never allow it [to] creep [in]. I feel pressure is a very negative connotation and I never allow anything negative to enter my system or affect me in any way.”
“The only person’s expectations I need to fulfil are my own. I need to ensure that I pump more and more of myself and my energy into my performances and hopefully, with each performance and each character that I play, I grow and evolve. I have expectations of myself. So it’s a very personal thing. So, pressure is something I don’t feel and most certainly not from any external source,” he concluded.
