Ever since Ranveer Singh made his Bollywood debut in ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ he has become one of the current heartthrobs in Bollywood. Post his second movie ‘Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl’ his popularity among the ladies has only increased.
“I love the fact that young girls like me,” said Ranveer Singh to Mid Day in an interview.
“Well, before I became an actor, I felt that I was good looking. Later, Adi Sir (Aditya Chopra) burst my bubble and told me that I wasn't that handsome but had a certain charm and quality, which certainly weren’t my looks. It was after ‘Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl’ that people started calling me handsome. Some girls told me that they liked my dancing, while others enjoyed the part where I step out of the shower looking wet and wild,” he added.
While many Bollywood actors scorn about being woman handled by their lady fans, Ranveer Singh enjoys it.
“After a recent awards function in Singapore, I was trying to locate my hotel room. There, a group of four-five drunken young girls started following me. They tore my clothes, scratched me, pulled my hair, pinched my bum and were literally over me. But I really can't complain (laughs out loud). After all, attention is what actors crave. Young girls are so expressive. They gush, scream, get excited and act crazy. I am really very glad that I appeal to this segment of the audience. I hope to do more films for my fantastic female fans,” he said.
The actor said that his current focus was on his career and love can happen later on in his life.
“Now, my priority is on sustaining my career, and making it bigger and better. I haven't had the mind for love. I feel that the period from 25- 30 years are formative ones for a man's career. Love can follow later,” he said.
But the actor said that once he was in a relationship he would be completely dedicated to his girl.
“I am an absolute romantic at heart. I can easily fall into the category of classic lovers. I enjoy making others feel special. And I hope that someone feels the need to make me feel special,” he concluded.
