Ranveer wants Lootera to prove his versatility

MUMBAI: Actor Ranveer Singh hopes his forthcoming movie Lootera gives the audiences a taste of his versatility.

“When I signed this film, I thought the audience would get to see something different from me. Hopefully, people will get to see that I can act, and that I can offer intensity and depth and a range of emotions on screen,” the 27-year-old said.

He believes this film is different from his past movies. “In Band Baaja Baarat my character was uninhibited, loud and vivacious, and in Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl I just had to look good. It was not necessarily a performance film, but Lootera is,” he added.

Directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, Lootera is a period romance and stars Sonakshi Sinha opposite Ranveer. It hits theatres on Friday.

Ranveer, who is awaiting four releases in the near future, hopes each one will take him a step forward as an actor. “A big year for me is coming up with four releases. Lootera this week, Ram Leela in November, Gunday in February and Kill Dill mid-2014. So it’s a very big year. I am quite aware of it, and I hope I move forward with each release. I think I’ll be quite happy if that happens,” Ranveer said.

Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ram Leela also stars Deepika Padukone, while Gunday also features Arjun Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra.
