Ranveer has always been a filmmaker’s muse. When he took on Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, a film that pitches him in a typical Mumbaikar avatar onscreen as a local rapper from the city, he also took the chance with a first time producer. And this is the second film whereby Ranveer has decided to tie his fate with a new producer.
When he signed up for Lootera, Vikramaditya Motwane’s applauded love story for Phantom Films, he was the first star to become a leading man for this boutique, indie production banner. With his decision to act in Gully Boy for Tiger Baby Productions, he has once again shown support for Zoya Akhtar as a producer.
In his decision to act in films with new producers, Ranveer has shown extensive support for solid talent, beyond the allure of established brands and names. For a superstar, taking a chance with newer, innovative producers is a refreshing change, and should set the right example for other movie stars to follow suit.
Zoya is known to bring out the best in acting from her stars in all her films. Working with Zoya for the second time, and with a co-star like Alia Bhatt, Ranveer is bound to present a never before seen aspect of his acting and re-establish his versatility as an actor. No doubt, he remains, the most surprising star of this generation.
