Let this little known fact be revealed now. While plans are being put together for the release of LOOTERA, Ranveer Singh has many other celebrations lined up ahead as well. His birthday falls on Saturday, 6th July, a day after LOOTERA hits the screens.
"It would be double bill of sorts for Ranveer," says a friend of the actor. "While he is of course anxious to check out how audience and industry responds to the film, there are plans being made by close friends, family members as well as the unit of LOOTERA to make the day really special for him."
"Insider reports around the film are very good and it is expected the by the time Friday would be through, strong word-of-mouth would spread around LOOTERA. This would also be apt for everyone to come together and bring on Ranveer's birthday. He is oblivious to the party plans though and is busy promoting the film; he has just been told to be ready at midnight so that celebrations can continue for the rest of the weekend," the friend adds.
For Ranveer, the day is special for reasons more than one. The film arrives a year and a half after his last release LADIES V/S RICKY BAHL and is also expected to be a game-changer. From playing a flamboyant character in each of his films (including BAND BAAJA BAARAAT), he is now turning sober in LOOTERA, which has a classical flavour with an old world charm.
"His birthday celebrations would be anything but sober though," quips a close associate of Ranveer. "Quite some 'dhamaal' has been lined up. After all, not many actors get an opportunity to celebrate their birthday on the same weekend as their film release. This one has to be special."
"It better turn out to be special indeed," is all that Ranveer said when contacted. Guess he is surrendering himself to the plans being made by his friend.
