Though Ranveer Singh comes across as a cool confident 'desi' middle class boy from Delhi in his debut film BAND BAJAA BAARAAT, the fact remains that he was a tad apprehensive when he started the film's shoot. No, he wasn't nervous but since the entire setup in front of the camera was quite alien to him, he was minding his steps; especially the ones where he had match them with his leading lady Anushka Sharma.
Remembers Ranveer who originally hails from Mumbai, 'Yes, there was some friction to begin with as we didn't know each other too well. What also came between us is that she is such a strong personality.'
Since Anushka already had two releases (RAB NE BANA DI JODI, BADMAASH COMPANY) and a complete film (PATIALA HOUSE) to her name, one does wonder whether that too played in Ranveer's mind that made him a little inhibited.
'Errrr, I would say it wasn't inhibition but I was definitely apprehensive for sure', says Ranveer after a little thinking, 'What played on in my mind was that she had already acted with Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar and Shahid Kapoor. Since each of them is an established actor, I was very curious to know that how would she work with me and whether she would be making any change in her persona for me.'
All was well eventually with a passage of time. 'Honestly, it took some time for both of us to settle down in each other's company. However, on screen, we shared a dynamite equation.'
Well Ranveer, we would like to see more of that ourselves once BBB hits the screens.
