Actor Ranveer Singh said that during the shooting of his film ‘Befikre’, director Aditya Chopra noticed that he was acting like Anil Kapoor.
Chopra has asked him to act like himself.
‘Befikre’ shoot was going on in Paris and Adi (Chopra) cut a shot, came from behind the monitor and said, ‘Yaar, you have started acting like Anil Kapoor. After ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ there has been a deep impact of his on you. So now in the next take, you give Ranveer’s shot, and not Anil’s’,” Ranveer said at the screening of Anil’s television show ’24’.
Ranveer even imitated Anil’s expressions and mannerisms at the event and posed in the ’24’ look with Anil.
“Actually he’s the biggest mastikhor of all, when I see him I get into masti mood or looking at me, he comes into masti mood; it’s just always a riot. How can I explain what happens after I see him? I really am in love, so infatuated by him,” he added.
The duo are related as Anil’s wife Sunita is Ranveer’s aunt. Anil had previously said that he would want to see his daughter Sonam being paired opposite Ranveer and had even approved him as the choice for the role of his Lakhan in the remake of the film ‘Ram Lakhan’, a film not being made now.
Ranveer added, “He is one of the reasons why I ever wanted to become an actor. He is a legend, an icon, he is one of the most talented, most handsome men to grace our silver screen and now he is going to be in everyone’s homes”. – CINEWS
