“Befikre” is not only professionally big for Ranveer Singh but also special personally as it has given him a chance to connect with his director Aditya Chopra on a deeper level.
With the light-hearted love story, Aditya is directing the 30-year-old “Bajirao Mastani” star for the first time. Earlier, he worked with the actor in the capacity of a producer for films like “Band Baaja Baaraat” and “Ladies v Ricky Bahl”.
“I am now getting to know him (Aditya) in a completely different capacity… Having worked with him for five years in a particular capacity there is an open channel of communication and there is a soul connect,” Ranveer told reporters here.
“I would say our relationship has become very substantial in the past few months as we have collaborated as actor-director and I have understood that why he is one of the biggest directors of Hindi cinema,” the actor said.
When asked if he feels under pressure for “Befikre” given that its Adityas return to direction after a gap of seven years, Ranveer said, “There is absolutely no pressure. It is a very light hearted film and we are going to shoot for four months from start to finish in Paris.
“So we have to keep one thing in mind that we dont have to get into pressure and have fun.”
The “Band Baaja Baaraat” star said he has been learning dance and some body building for the movie, set for release on December 9 release.
While both his “Bajirao Mastani” co-stars Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra are making their presence felt internationally, Ranveer currently wants to focus on conquering Bollywood.
“Right now I am really enjoying the work here that I am doing in Hindi films. I am in collaboration with some really exciting filmmakers. So, I am thoroughly enjoying the kind of work that is in the pipeline for me in the coming years.”
