Ranveer Singh‘s Story is an inspirational one. A true motivational story, a real motivational story. this is one of the true motivational stories that I have heard. So, sharing it with you.
Most talented and renowned artists of the decade. A self-made man who followed his passion, his love for acting and traveled a journey from an ordinary person to the list of Forbes India’s celebrity 100.
In India, where the artist of a film is called a hero, not an actor. His dream was not to be an actor but to be a hero.
“I’ve learned that you should not take people seriously even when they praise you or trash you”- Ranveer Singh
Unlike any artist who has a familial connection in Bollywood, his way to the best debut artist was not that simple. Thinking about it realistically, he couldn’t get there.
Born on 6th July 1985, in a Sindhi family as Ranveer Singh Bhavnani, dropped his surname “Bhavnani” as it was “too long, too many syllables”.
While he was in his 2nd year during his graduation, by chance, took a drama class.
His instructor asked him to perform in front of all. He recited dialogues in Hindi which impressed all of the audience and evoke an emotional reaction out of the audience, the ones who didn’t even understand his language,
he got a belief that he had something, and why is he not doing it. He called his dad and told the story. His dad agreed but on a condition to complete his graduation first.
thus he gained a dream to be an actor.
“I CAN ACCEPT FALLING BUT I CAN’T ACCEPT NOT TRYING.”- Ranveer Singh
After his graduation, he came to India and did a job as a copywriter. But his heart still had the dream so left the job and began his struggle to the big screen.
He tried to join some theatre but it was hard to be in one. He did everything to be near the theatre, near his passion.
He did all kind of work
from pulling up chairs, bring the actors tea, turning lights on-off, everything he could do to be helpful to the theatre.
He used to put setups. break the set down. he was a runner.
He tried every way to contact directors, producer and even stole no.s from the phones.
It was a hard time. Sometimes he doubted his decision. But deep down he hears a voice shouting
” hold a little more, stay a little more.”
He didn’t let the fear to overcome his belief. He didn’t quit.
“I BELIEVED that I WAS GOOD”- Ranveer Singh.
Finally, the call rang. In January 2010, He was chosen for the lead role in Band Baja Baaraat, a romantic comedy set in the world of wedding planning. They wanted a new face and were impressed by his audition video.
Even after this, he did auditions for two weeks and completely convinced the Yash Raj films about his caliber.
Then the day comes. On Friday he was a struggler and on Monday a celebrity.
His film earned 214 million at the domestic box office. Then the Best Male debut in the 56th Filmfare awards.
Following Band Baja Baaraat, Ranveer Singh signed for Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl, which earned 370 million.
Then the list goes on. Lootera, Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, Gunday, Bajirao Mastani and many more. His acting and his belief in himself made him what he is now. The most loved artist, always full of life.
“That’s what you get for pursuing your passion.”- Ranveer Singh
If you have a dream stick to it as long as you want. There is no one to tell you, you don’t have it in you. If you believe you have and you can. That’s all you want.
“I am a living example that lack of conventional good looks shouldn’t hinder you from being awesome.” – Ranveer Singh
