Superstar Ranveer Singh has just delivered the biggest overseas grosser of 2021 with 83, a film that has not only been unanimously reviewed as one of the best films made to date but is also being considered as Ranveer’s best acting performance of his career! The shape-shifting actor of his generation has a stellar line up of projects from YRF’s Jayeshbhai Jordaar, Shankar’s remake of his blockbuster Anniyan, Rohit Shetty’s Cirkus and Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. Ranveer reveals he is now focussing on handpicking projects that are family entertainers which can drive people back to the theatres for a ‘community viewing experience’.
Ranveer says, “I’m going through a phase where I feel like I want to focus my energies on telling stories that can be received seamlessly by the widest spectrum of audience. I have become more family oriented as a person as my years go by. I’ve realised that my circle has become smaller. For me, personally, right now, I cherish and appreciate the films that I can watch with my in-laws, with my parents, with kids in the family.”
Ranveer adds, “I want to focus my energies on community viewing experiences because I feel like the ones that you watch sitting together, that cinematic experience creates a bond, it brings people together, it brings families together. When I watched 3 Idiots with my friends, that’s a shared experience I’ll never forget. The community viewing, it binds people together, it’s bonding and having become a very, very family oriented person, I now want to become a part of those films that I appreciate the most and the ones I’m appreciating the most in this phase of my life are the ones that bring people together.”
Ranveer further adds, “So, I want to be part of films that a family can sit together, enjoy together and have that shared experience and enjoy that. What is life at the end? It’s a shared experience! I want to be a part of films that the entire family can watch and you know it doesn’t make anyone uncomfortable and it’s not a solo watch. I want to bring people together through entertainment.”
In the IIHB TIARA research that was recently released, Ranveer tops the list of the Coolest Superstar of the country – a very important brand attribute that makes him the most sought after face in the brand endorsement space. Ranveer also tops Bollywood on being the Trendiest Superstar as per the same research.
