Ranveer Singh is back with a bang. His recently released film, Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, received positive reviews and it is performing well at the box office too. He is being hailed for portraying the role of Rocky Randhawa, a rich Punjabi brat who falls in love with Rani, an educated Bengali journalist. While the film is a success at the box office, his previous three releases, 83 (2021), Jayeshbhai Jordaar (2022) and Cirkus (2022), failed to draw the audience to theatres.
At Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani's press conference on Thursday in Mumbai, Ranveer was asked about dealing with box office failures before tasting success all over again. The actor told, "I don't dwell too much on failure or success. I am grateful that I get to go on a film set and work. What matters is my character gets loved. Hence, I am grateful, no matter what. I don’t understand this numbers game, and I try to remain as detached from it as possible. I want to focus on craft, performance, and character and do my best to contribute to what is truly a collaborative effort."
He further added, "So if a film is a success, it’s not my own; everybody’s together, and the same goes for failure. As they say, you learn more from your failures than your successes, and I have learned a few things in the recent past. At the moment, I’m delighted at the love being shown towards Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani. I’m very grateful."
Ranveer shed light on facing ups and downs in his illustrious career in Bollywood. "It’s almost miraculous that I get to be a part of Hindi movies. Ups and downs are part of life, but I’ve always believed that the process is the price itself. If people love it, that’s sone pe suhaga. I’m happy that Rocky is another feather in the cap of the array of characters that are very dear to me. My super purpose is to build a body of work that I can look back on and be proud of. So, from Bittoo Sharma (Band Baaja Baaraat) to Rocky Randhawa, it’s been quite an incredible journey," he shared.
Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani is in the race to enter the coveted 100-crore club in India soon.
