Ranveer Singh gives an ‘EPIC’ reply to his comparisons with Shah Rukh Khan
Ever since the clash between the two much awaited movies of the year ‘Dilwale’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’ was announced, a lot has been written about both the movies.
It was indeed the much talked about topic, as both the movies had released on December 18, 2015.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’ was a periodical drama starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra. On the other hand, Rohit Shetty’s ‘Dilwale’ was a romantic comedy thriller starring Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon.
While everyone was looking forward to see which movie will take a lead at the box office, several comparisons were made between the star cast of both ‘Dilwale’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’, especially between Shah Rukh and Ranveer.
But during a recent interview to a leading daily, Ranveer Singh gave a befitting reply to all the comparisons.
The ‘Gunday’ actor praised SRK saying, “SRK has got too much depth and range in acting. Whatever we have seen till now is just the tip of the iceberg. I said this about Kareena Kapoor recently and it got misconstrued completely. Why are they stars? It is because they are actors first. They are able to portray various emotions on screen and connect to people’s hearts. And it is unfortunate both films came on the same day.”
Ranveer Singh further added, ”There is no comparison at all between me and SRK. His contribution to Hindi cinema is unparalleled and unmatched. There has never been anyone like him. I was hanging out with him yesterday at Stardust awards. We hung out for a while and he is so humble and grounded. The way he used to meet me when I was a newcomer, he meets me the same way even today.”
