Actor Ranveer Singh, who is recuperating from Dengue in his Mumbai apartment, talks about love, films, Deepika Padukone and his next, 'Ram Leela'.
Who works through dengue?
When I felt a fever coming in Durgapur during 'Gunday's shooting, I got it checked but it didn't show up in the reports. I wasn't given the option to not shoot. Nobody told me that if you are not feeling good, take some time off, but I was told that "Buddy, we know you are not feeling good so how do we make you feel better so that you can shoot." So I finished my shooting, came back to Mumbai and straight away went to the hospital.
You've had quite a few health scares. As a hyper energetic guy, how are you coping?
I've noticed that whenever my shirtless picture appears in the newspapers, something happens to me. The first time it happened I had my back injury during 'Lootera,' then shards of glass pierced my foot and now before 'Ram Leela,' I got dengue. I've been told to rest and sleep till my energy levels come back but I'm getting stressed. I feel as if time is running out. I'm not getting any younger. There are so many films that I want to do.
Did working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in Ram Leela make you discover something new about yourself?
I like to believe I'm the ultimate Bhansali hero. Apart from the looks — I need to be taller, fairer and better looking — but in terms of the personality, I have it down pat with the craziness, the madness and volatility. Bhansali and I come from the same school of melodrama — we both love it so when we work together, we combust.
Did Bhansali live up to his reputation of being difficult and demanding?
