These stars inspired Ranveer Singh to be a Hindi film hero

Ranveer Singh is talking about his dreamy success run at the box-office, the talented actor opened up in a recent interview. Ranveer said, “What made me want to join the movies was watching films and wanting to be like the stars of that era. Amitabh Bachchan, Govinda, Anil Kapoor, Akshay (Kumar) sir, Ajay (Devgn) sir, the Khans (Aamir, Shah Rukh and Salman), Sanjay Dutt and Hrithik Roshan sir… These are people, who have individually and collectively inspired me to be a Hindi film hero. Plans and ideas formed in my head as a child. But I started out by not wanting to be an actor. I always wanted to be a hero, which I am now.”

He further added, “One of my dad’s close friends owns a theatre. When he received standees of Simmba, he called to tell us how surreal it was. They have seen me growing up and suddenly there I was on a standee. For me too, the feeling was one of immense joy. This larger-than-life mounting of a Hindi film hero is something I craved for. Going to watch the movie at single screens with the masses is a different high. I am where I dreamt of being. Simmba was my first movie of this scale and mounting.”
