'You're Not Hrithik Roshan': Ranveer Singh recalls Aditya Chopra's advice to him after Band Baaja Baaraat

New Delhi: 

Ranveer Singh is one of the top actors in Bollywood and fans love him. Having been in the industry for over 11 years now, he has made his mark with several blockbuster movies such as ‘Bajirao Mastani’, ‘Padmaavat’, ‘Simmba’, and ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela.’

When Ranveer made his debut with Anushka Sharma in ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’, he wasn’t a quintessential hero. Speaking during the trailer launch of his upcoming film ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’, Ranveer revealed that YRF boss man Aditya Chopra had told him to focus on acting because he wasn’t Hrithik Roshan, presumably referring to his looks.

Ranveer recalled that when ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ was about to release, there were posters featuring him and Anushka all over the city. When he noticed two people looking at the poster, he overheard telling that he doesn’t look like a hero. Later, Aditya had also made a similar remark when they sat down for their second meet.

“Before the release of my first film, my posters were put up everywhere. I had gone to watch a film, where I saw two people standing in front of my poster. I stopped because I wanted to overhear what they had to say. They said, ‘Who is this? He doesn’t look like a hero!’ This has happened. In fact, Aditya Chopra had told me in our second meeting that, ‘You’re not Hrithik Roshan, toh tu acting kar lena (so you please act),” Ranveer said.

Well, Ranveer now has a fanbase in Billions and has proved that while he might not be Hrithik, he sure can act. 

Speaking of ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’, Ranveer will be seen in a never-seen-before avatar. The actor plays the role of a Gujarati man, married to Shalini Pandey, and a father of a daughter. His father, the village sarpanch played by Boman Irani and mother played by Ratna Pathak Shah, are hell-bent on having a grandson. However, they learn that they’re having a granddaughter again, leading to Jayeshbhai standing up against his family.

Jayeshbhai Jordaar is all set to release in theatres on May 13.
