–Subhash K Jha (MUMBAI MIRROR; March 27, 2012)
Ranveer Singh who’s laid up with an injured back for at least a month is spending his time in bed preparing for his next role as a Gujarati lover-boy in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela, and catching up with all the films that he has always wanted to see but was never able to find time for.
When Ranveer asked his director Sanjay Leela Bhansali which films to see, Bhansali said, ‘Watch anything but not my Guzaarish, please.’
Guzaarish stars Hrithik Roshan as a paraplegic.
The joke was well taken and both Ranveer and Sanjay Bhansali had a long and hearty laugh over that one.
Jokes aside, a source explains, “Ram Leela is an epic musical rendering of Romeo & Juliet with loads of dancing and singing. With Ranveer’s only other project Lootera postponed indefinitely he is concentrating on Ram Leela. He has been reading and re-reading the script, getting familiar with his character of Ram.”
