Singh told IANS: "When you write a film, you have a wish list of actors ready. The role in ROY is not a typical lead role. It's a character. I have seen Ranbir's work. He doesn't shy away from taking risks.”
"We have seen him doing a film like BARFI! in which he didn't have any dialogue. Also, his vision is different. He had faith in the film, and so he said yes to ROY," Vikramjit added.
