I used to sit in the Prithvi theater as a fighter looking for strange jobs: Ranveer Singh reveals with epic throwback poster | Hindi Movie News

Ranveer Singh fans had a pleasant surprise on social media when the actor shared a major poster from his days as a stage actor. Before his big Bollywood film debut with ‘Band Baaja Baarat’, the actor revealed that he starred in plays, including one titled ‘Carry On at the Keyhole’, a comedy directed by Dinkar Jani.

The heartthrob, who is under quarantine due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, recalled his days of fighting as a young heartthrob trying to make his mark in show business.

Ranveer said in a statement: “This is a poster for a small play in which I had a small role and the story says that I used to be a fighter and used to sit in the Prithvi theater with 2-3 people like me.” We used to sit there every day, look for odd jobs. One of them received information that an audition is taking place at a university in Andheri for a small role in a small play and no one wanted to go. I said I would go because I didn’t have anything at the time! ”

He adds, “I thought to myself, ‘Acting acting hoti hai-koi bada chota kya hota hai.’ I went to the audition, got the part and were very impressed by my performance. When we introduced the performance, I remember one being in St Andrew’s and even then I was proud when I performed on the St Andrew stage because I used to act on that stage as a student when I was at school. I had the role of an interior decorator posing as a gay man to attract more business and it was an old English two-way comedy that was directed by Darshan Jariwala and directed by Dinkar Jani. ”

He continued sharing: “I remember that whoever used to come and see the play was always impressed by my performance and I really took it very seriously and gave it my all. I used to wear some of my clothes and most of the people who came to see the play were just friends and family who I had informed was doing this performance and was coming to see it. ”

Years later, with multiple blockbuster movies and Filmfare Awards to his name, the superstar recalled meeting the producer of the play, Yogesh Sanghvi, at an awards ceremony. Calling it a very emotional moment, he said: “When we reconnected, it was a very emotional moment for him and me, to meet after all those years, just to see his wet eyes, the pride in his eyes.” Your kahan is kahan pahuch gaya mere dost ‘and I was also getting a little emotional when I met him because I used to like him a lot and he was very kind to me. We had no money in that work, but what he used to do give me very generously. He was always very fair and kind to me. So it’s a very, very loving memory of me from my days of fighting. ”

On the job front, Ranveer is set to play Kapil Dev in the upcoming ’83 biopic. The Kabir Khan-directed film became the latest “put on hold” due to the current threat of coronavirus.
