To reach the moon you have to start from land. Similarly, the journey to stardom is never easy, be it for a Bollywood actor or a Sports personality. Though, the world only knows the ‘glamorous’ side of Bollywood and not the failures and lows, one has to face to reach the top.
Same happened with the legend actor Ranveer Singh. Ranveer Singh is one of the leading actors of this time. From his ‘Bread Pakora ki kasam’ to ‘No it was epuke’ dialogue in Dil Dhadakne Do, the quirky actor has always struck a chord with the youth
But do you know about his darkest phase? He revealed unknown side of his journey and his nature, which he has deliberately kept hidden from his fans. In 2016, he shared his darkest phase of life.
I have been ridiculed, faced racism and humiliation
“I have had some tough life experiences. It’s not all been rosy. I have been through prolonged intense and immense emotional turbulence, financial difficulties… I have been ridiculed, faced racism and humiliation. Hence, I believe in this quote: Be kind to whoever you meet because everyone’s fighting their own battle.”
Most times, I play the fool because ‘the fool’ is more likeable and relatable
On being asked if his happy-go-lucky persona is just a façade to hide the actor’s sensitive side, Ranveer said, “I believe it’s a Cancerian trait to be sensitive to the degree of it being unhealthy. To be emphatic and vulnerable to the degree, it can be detrimental. I will be difficult for me if I do not try to be happy and spread happiness.
Being so sensitive isn’t good as it puts you at the mercy of the big bad world. I am an extremist, my feelings are also extreme. So yes, you are right in saying it is a defence mechanism. Also, I have this need to be liked. I hide my intelligence because I feel it alienates people. Most times, I play the fool because ‘the fool’ is more likeable and relatable. I get criticised by people around me for hiding my intelligence. (Laughs) I am almost embarrassed of it.”
It is his talent and talent alone that has made him the home-boy of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, a title which earlier used to belong to none other than Salman Khan.
So, now we know the secret of Ranveer Singh’s beaming personality and obviously the intelligent side.
These personal revelations will surely make his fans love him even more. Kudos!
