Ranveer Singh, who is riding high on the success of Padmaavat, was recently approached to make an appearance at a wedding. The organizers wanted him to be at the shaadi for 30 minutes and were offering him a fat amount of Rs 2 crore for it.
While it’s not unusual to hear of actors being approached to make appearances at weddings and events, what is surprising is that Ranveer declined the offer. Reason: He has started shooting for his next, Gully Boy, and felt that this would distract him from the shoot.
A source informs, “Ranveer is a perfectionist when he is shooting and concentrates on the minutest details as part of his prep for the character he plays. For him to pull off this appearance would mean him wrapping up the shoot (he is shooting from 6 am to 6 pm every day for Zoya’s film), flying to a different city and returning the same night to report to the set at the crack of dawn the following day. Doing that, he wouldn’t have got any time to rest. So, he told his team that he would like to concentrate on performing his role better than focus on the money offered and asked them to decline it.”
After all, Ranveer is very much enthusiastic towards his work and his denial of an event is quite acceptable from his side. On the work front, Ranveer Singh will next be seen opposite Alia Bhatt in Gully Boys. The film is currently in shooting process and it will be released on February 14, 2019, on Valentine’s Day.
In Gully Boy, Ranveer will be venturing into his forte as the actor is a rap enthusiast. When asked about Gully Boy, Ranveer told us, “It is incredible. It is a story of these boys who come from tough existence. They are a franchise to a lot of people who have got a tough life. They found an expression in art and in music. They have broken through as recording artists. It’s something I feel for, very strongly and the film is perhaps closest to my heart after Band Baaja Baraat because it is my first film but Gully Boy, is closest to my heart because I am keen to be champion of this cause of trying to grow and develop this most wonderful music scenes which are flourishing and coming out of the streets of Mumbai.”
