It was after he sat down with Motwane for script readings he grew confident that he can play the role of a con man in the upcoming movie, which also stars Sonakshi Sinha. "I was not accepting 'Lootera's' character at first as it was nothing like me.
But when I met Vikramaditya Motwane personally and sat down for script readings I changed my mind. "My director convinced me that I can do it. I prepared hard for the role and used to rehearse before every shot," said Ranveer.
The 27-year-old, who has previously done films like 'Band Baaja Baaraat' and 'Ladies VS Ricky Bahl', is also all praise for his co-star Sonakshi. "Sonakshi is a real performer. She is at ease and not at all stressed while acting.
She is a significant actress," he added. Motwane's previous project was 'Udaan', which was not an immediate success at the box office when released, but was eventually regarded as a cult classic. 'Lootera' will hit the theatres this Friday.
