The first thing comes to my mind when I hear Ranveer Singh is Sugar Rush! Yes, that’s what he is like. He is like something that you love and enjoy, something that makes you high. He is like a B12 shot.
As an actor, he is supremely talent. I have had a very good collaboration with him. As a person, he is extremely caring, extremely sensitive and very susceptible to the energy around him, to the mood around him and to people. He reads people well, which is why I think he is an actor of the calibre that he is. Because he is sensitive to that.
When I was working with him, he was also one of the younger ones in the ensemble. The other actors had done much more work and I felt that I would have to take little care of him. But he took care of me, you know what I mean. He could totally pick up on my mood and he was very sensitive to me. I think that is what made him very special. He is great to work with. I really, absolutely enjoyed working with him. And after Farhan, I don’t think I have had that kind of comfort! He is extremely comfortable to be with.
From the perspective of the audience, I don’t know what exactly they love about him. I would be ruling all if I did! That’s why probably they call it the ‘X Factor’ because we don’t know what the X is. It is not definable. But yes, he has it.
