After the success of padmavat and simmba ranveer singh delivered 500cr. nett in a calender year.
On his success, Ranveer said in a statement to IANS: “I’m uncomfortable in these scenarios, in these discussions, people discuss money and I start scratching my head. I feel I should protect myself now more than ever before from these sorts of things. I find myself receding because I don’t know where this will take me, whether it will colour my thinking because I have been a certain way.
“So far it has worked for me, and I hope to continue as the same kind of artiste and very committed to protecting that integrity that I have towards my art, craft, and I don’t want to start with making choices that I have to do with anything other than honesty, that will be the death of me.”
He knows the number game and what it means.
But Ranveer said: “I also want to stay away this getting into my head. I want to protect the sanctity of my craft and my love for cinema. I have followed a certain ethos that has brought me to this position and I don’t want to change that and don’t want to get into making choices thinking when we do that film, it seems like a Rs 300 cr prospect.
“It is not about the numbers for me, it is basically to entertain people, to entertain as many as i can and as much as possible. I keep that purpose of life, i’m an entertainer and I want to be the best entertainer. It’s a single point agenda for me and a personal ambition,” he added.
The actor, who married actress Deepika Padukone last year, will next be seen as a street rapper in “Gully Boy”, the trailer of which has already set the bar of expectations high from Ranveer.
