He revealed that the kind of films he loved were the ones in which the hero was the king and the film was larger than life. He said, “I went to university and as usual I was late for everything and late for registering for class and then there was 1 seat for acting for Nonmajors. I have already acted in school and college, so I was like I can do this. The instructor asked us to perform and I did that, everyone in the class was impressed. AND THIS IS IT! I AM A PERFORMER.” 

Further into the show, Ranveer talked about how off-late he has been spending a lot of time with his father as has also told him, “You have been the best provider and the best family man anyone could get.” Digging deeper into the conversation about family, Komal Nahta was inquisitive to learn about why Ranveer refers to his elder sister as his ‘Other Mother’, he said, “Her nature I guess, she is very caring, very motherly and loving. She always treats me like a child. She would spend the money she earned to buy chocolates for me. Hence, I cannot even call her my elder sister, she is my second mother!”
