Not many are aware that the full name of Ranveer Singh is Ranveer Singh Bhavnani. With a Sindhi-Punjabi background, he has come across as a live-wire on screen. However when it came to playing a subtler part in his third release, LOOTERA, Ranveer was apprehensive about pulling it off. However this is where a bond that he formed with his director Vikramaditya Motwane, also a Sindhi, came in handy.

Informs a source, "While it was all written quite well on paper, the character had so many layers to it that Ranveer started having second thoughts about stepping into the part. He has played a particular kind of character in his films, BAND BAAJA BAARAAT AND LADIES V/S RICKY BAHL. Though he too was of the view that it was about time he had an image change, the world of LOOTERA was alien to him. He was concerned. He felt that doing such a role at this stage of his career may be a huge risk."

On his part, Vikramaditya was convinced though that Ranveer would manage to pull it off. Knowing him for quite some time, the director felt that there was a lot of untapped potential in the actor that was waiting for the explored.

"Playing the Sindhi card worked as well," laughs Vikramaditya. "Since we belong to the same world, a connect was formed. I remember meeting him in early 2011 when he was busy collecting awards for BAND BAAJA BARAAT and I too had a good run with UDAAN. We hit it off well. However doing a movie was an altogether different ballgame. I pitched him the story as I felt he was best suited for the part. He was surprised though that I had chosen him among so many others. He was apprehensive but I continued to persist. One fine day, he just came and said 'Let's do it". It was as simple as that."

Now we look forward to this connect igniting spark on screen as well when the film releases all over on 5th July.
