Is Ranveer going overboard with his 'antics'?
There may be an array of entrants in Bollywood vying to make a mark in the industry and get an edge over the others. However, two films old Ranveer Singh seems to be willing to go any extent to keep hitting the headlines
Not once, not twice, the actor has consistently displayed his histrionics at a number of media appearances that grabbed eyeballs. If not that, he manages the feat by rubbing people in the wrong way. With Ranveer having both his hands full with five films in the pipeline, we wonder what keeps the actor going on and on with his antics. We trace down some of his extravagant behaviour right from the time of his first film 'Band Baaja Baaraat' till date seeking attention for wrong reasons.
After the success of 'Band Baaja Baaraat', Ranveer Singh was spotted trying to jump off a fence while shooting for 'Ladies vs Ricky Bahl'. We wonder what made the actor avoid the gates. Considering his attention seeking behaviour, we're sure he wasn't trying to escape the eyes of fans.
At Shahid Kapoor's birthday party, Ranveer chose to make his relationship public. He even shared a liplock with the co-star Anushka Sharma shocking all guests at the party.
The actor is supposed to be disliking Maneesh Sharma, the director of his debut film 'Band Baaja Baaraat'. Those close to the actor say Ranveer thought Maneesh was taking a lot of credit for the film. The actor has been fast making friends with other directors and even danced for hours at Shaad Ali’s nuptials.
At a gala event in Toronto, Ranveer was seen constantly trying to create a 'tamasha'. He would either lunge towards people for a hug or a fall at their feet, depending on their seniority. This was done more in the spirit of exhibitionism than reverence.
At the screening of Kai Po Che!, Ranveer Singh took Huma Qureshi by surprise on the red carpet when he made her waltz with him. She was taken by surprise as she did not even know him!
At the red carpet of an awards, the actor tried to hog the limelight going up and down the stairs and complimenting the act with some loud pelvic thrusts.
Ranveer was specifically asked to keep a beard for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Ram Leela'. But he invited SLB's ire when he walked onto the sets with a clean-shaven look. A huge fight followed and crewmembers had to resolve the issue by suggesting prosthetics.
Recently, Ranveer invited Shatrughan Sinha's ire when he passed some rather cosy compliments to Sonakshi by saying, “I would like to date Sonakshi, she is the perfect Indian beauty”. Father 'Shotgun' Sinha was so infuriated, he summoned Sona back to Mumbai.
The actor openly threatened one of Anushka Sharma's fan when he complimented the actress. According to sources, Ranveer snapped at the fan saying, “She is my girlfriend! I will break your nose.”
Ranveer has somewhat earned the reputation for digging his co-stars. First it was Anushka, then Sonakshi and then buzz suggested he is quite close to 'Ram Leela' co-star Deepika Padukone. The two were even spotted having lunch on New Year’s Eve.
Ranveer took an instant dislike for newbie Arjun Kapoor, his co-star in YRF's 'Gunday', when he was linked to his ex Anushka Sharma. This became all the more obvious when Ranveer snubbed Arjun at a party when he tried to strike a conversation.
At the latest screening of 'Bombay Talkies', Ranveer Singh was seen posing for the paparazzi albeit in a way that exposed his bushy armpits!
Apart from having a series of cold wars with industry colleagues, Ranveer Singh apparently was spotted trying “too hard” to impress girls at a Bandra club.
