BizAsiaLive.com has confirmed that Ranveer Singh has become the second hero, after Salman Khan, to hit Rs 500 crore in one year. The actor reacted to this.
According to IANS, Singh said in a statement, “I’m uncomfortable in these scenarios, in these discussions, people discuss money and I start scratching my head. I feel I should protect myself now more than ever before from these sorts of things. I find myself receding because I don’t know where this will take me, whether it will colour my thinking because I have been a certain way.”
He also said he doesn’t want to get into the number games, “I also want to stay away from this getting into my head. I want to protect the sanctity of my craft and my love for cinema. I have followed a certain ethos that has brought me to this position and I don’t want to change that and don’t want to get into making choices thinking when we do that film, it seems like a Rs 300 crore prospect”.
“It is not about the numbers for me, it is basically to entertain people, to entertain as many as I can and as much as possible. I keep that purpose of life, I’m an entertainer and I want to be the best entertainer. It’s a single point agenda for me and personal ambition,” he concluded.
Last year, Singh’s films ‘Padmaavat’ and ‘Simmba’ placed him where only Salman Khan has gone.
He will be seen next in ‘Gully Boy’ which releases next month.
