Ranveer Singh Quotes

"People ask me how I am such a happy person. They ask me whether I’m really happy or faking it.
I believe we are living in a maha kalyug. It’s the worst it’s ever been. I can’t understand why people
find it hard to believe that I’m a jovial person. They don’t realise that I just count my blessings
every day. I’ve so much to be thankful for? How can I be a dull and morose person? Maybe,
if I had not become an actor, I would’ve been a different person. Perhaps, I’d have been bitter and
resentful. Right now I have all the reasons to be happy."

I’m also someone who likes to make others happy. I guess, I’m blessed with this ability. I do that
on a daily basis. If I spread happiness and joy, I’ll get it back manifold.

"My grandfather, who was a pious man, once told me that he kept asking God where life would
take me. For the longest time he didn’t get any answer. However, one day, he had a vision of me
standing next to Amitabh Bachchan. He’d narrate this story every day with the same enthusiasm.
It’s crazy how his vision came true."

"I wanted to be an actor all my life. I did it. This is my biggest high, every hit film is a bonus.

I have grown as an artiste and as a person, and I know I didn't half-ass anything. As for spirits,
I drink rarely. But when I drink, I drink really hard and get really high. When I party, I party hard
and I have to be carried out of the place. It takes me a few days to get over the hangover."

"I never thought the day would come when I would be making news for the clothes I wear. I do it
organically. It is not by calculation or design. People think it is attention seeking. It is not. It is an
expression of what I am feeling at that point. Sometimes I feel like wearing a white tee and blue
jeans and I do it. Sometimes I feel like wearing a night suit to sleep and sometimes I feel like
sleeping naked. And the good part is I don't fear the opinion of others. I wear whatever I feel like.
If Nitasha (stylist) brings 12 suits and I love a floral print one then I am not afraid of what people
will think about it. I do what I feel like doing. I do not filer my expression. That keeps me happy."

"Earlier, I believed people were happier being single and that marriage was redundant. But in the

past three years some experiences have changed my outlook. Today, I believe in monogyny,
I believe in marriage. I believe that the best thing one can be is an honourable family man. Also I
read something which left an impact on me, “Success is measured as the beneficial footprint that
you leave on society… It’s not about how much money you have… but how many lives you can touch.”
Till about three years ago I didn’t want to grow up. I would not even behave my age. I found it
easier to be an idiot. Now I think deep, I don’t resist the predisposition towards intimacy; I don’t
resist the predisposition to lateral thought, conflict and argument. I’ve become interested in world
news, world issues. Earlier, I was carefree, reckless and silly. I didn’t care at all. Now I do."

"I am not a cheat or a liar. I am very simple. I find excitement in my work and do it honestly. I don’t
like negativity, manipulation and politics. So, I stay very far from them."
"Whenever I have done bad to anyone or betrayed anyone, the only person who suffers is me. It eats
me from inside, so I have realised you should not wrong anybody. I choose to live an honest and clean

"I’m blessed that I get an opportunity to do what I love for a living. I feel that you should approach lif

"I faced rejection on the basis of the way I looked. Not because of my ability. I was told that I was not
very good looking or had the conventional hero looks. May be I was not very fair or tall enough. But I
thought I was fairly good looking."
"I’ve always been this way (energetic). Maybe that’s how God has made me. I drink a lot of coffee too.
So, my energy shoots up further. Once I’m up, that’s by noon, I’m brimming with energy. But before noon,
I’m grumpy, “Leave me alone, let me rest.” But soon I get in form. I become super active. I like making
people laugh, keeping the atmosphere light and fun. I can’t remain serious for long."

"I do feel low sometimes. But you have to get out of it. That feeling may stay with you for three hours,
three days or maybe even three years. But it all gets fine with time."

"I'm not good enough to be Anushka Sharma's boyfriend. She's so beautiful, I'm not so beautiful; she's
so talented, I'm not so talented; she's so intelligent, I'm not so intelligent; she deserve someone better
them me and that's why I would not put her through me. I'm not good for Anushka, period."

"I always wanted to be an actor ever since I was a little kid. I knew that I had to do something related
to performing arts and I enjoyed acting the most as it incorporated so many different art forms. I must
say, I was a very filmy kid. I used to watch a lot of TV and get very influenced by Bollywood."

"My ambition was always to bag a lead role in a film and hence I refrained from doing any ads, TV serials,
music videos as I felt that a fresh face always works much better. It was a gamble and I took that gamble
telling myself that I will give it my all to bag a lead role."

"I dislike the preppy stuff — clean shaven, polo T-shirt, loafers etc. I like anything that’s distinctive."

"My mother has made a small prayer area in our home, and my older sister Ritika ties me a rakhi in that
part of the home every year. She's always particular about tying a rakhi that doesn't bleed colour and
looks good on my wrist, as I wear it till it comes off on its own."

"I don't understand love - i don't think love can be defined in simple terms - it's a very broad concept."

"Romantic movies are my least favourite genre. I love movies that are twisted. It may seem a little
hypocritical because I am a romantic hero."

"I like the fun and flirty romances, but because of the kind of person I am, my relationships have
always been intense."

"They (live-in relationships) are really, really good. I think they come without the baggage of marriage,
yet they give you the opportunity to bond with a person at a very deep level. Sharing your space with
a person is very intimate. You get that without the tag of marriage so I love live-in relationships. I
think they work fabulously."

"When I started out with Band Baaja Baaraat, I used to wear what a young hero was expected to wear.
But slowly I realised that I’m not comfortable wearing those clothes. That I’m trying to fit into a
prototype. So now I usually dress the way I want to."

"I’ve always been an attention-seeking kid. I can’t help it if I’m being myself and having fun. That’s one
thing people try to twist around and use against me. If I have inherent energy that’s infectious so be it.
I’m aware I’m not normal and am a bit more uninhibited than the rest. I don’t try to seek attention.
Rather I’m the centre of attention."

"I come from a family where people are physically affectionate. Hugging and kissing comes naturally to
me. It is a very casual thing."

"Fashion is an expression of what you’re feeling."

"I am an animated and flamboyant person. But it is being mistaken as brashness. So now I am trying to
be more dignified. I am a normal youngster who loves to let his hair down at times and party. But, I was
tired of being misunderstood. It seemed I was ruffling too many feathers within the industry. People
thought I was being too straightforward. It is then that I started moulding myself to fit in. But, that is
all a garb—inside it is the same Ranveer."

"I am very generous with my compliments, and I tend to see the beauty in everyone. (Laughs) And I don’t
hold back in expressing my feelings and I think that’s why, somewhere or the other, these traits of mine
add up to me being tagged as a flirt, which is fine. It’s not my own doing and I’m not trying to perpetrate
it It’s not that I have a problem being tagged as a flirt. But I have a problem with tags in general. This
Casanova tag, or flirt – I have a problem with it. Because when you tag someone, you are defining then
and limiting them. Whoever you are assigning a tag to, each person is complex and infinite. So if you tag
them, it’s like putting them in a box. And I don’t subscribe to it."

"A perfect date needs to have certain elements in place. You need to have engaging company that you
can share crackling chemistry with, good food, good music and good conversation."

vibes. Remember to breathe, relax, and take care of your health. Love someone. Love your family."

"I have always been this attention seeker. I do things just to get attention. I love the claps, the whistles.
Whatever I do, I do for it. I love adulation of any kind."

"When I was struggling to be an actor, I had declined three movies. I had just completed my course in
the States. My family never put pressure on me but I knew that they were worried. They had invested
a lot of money in my education. After the degree, they thought I would start earning and become
independent. But I was somewhat dependent on them. I asked them for money to get a portfolio made
amongst other things. They never made it apparent to me because we weren’t well off back then. We
were under financial strain. Today, we’re in a much better condition. At a time like that I got offered
three lead roles but I declined them. The producers thought I was mad. They said I was an outsider to
the industry and that I was being stupid to decline such offers. I remember one producer told me,
“Nobody gets such an opportunity. Go to Lokhandwala and you’ll find hundreds like you who dream of
becoming an actor. They’ll give one arm to take this offer.” But I still said no. That was a big risk!"

"I don’t have so much interest in my personal life; I don’t understand why others do. My life is mostly
about the work I do but everyone else seems to be interested in what I do in one or two hours after
work. That’s a small component and I don’t understand why people are so interested in it."

"Priyanka Chopra makes me feel like a blonde."

"I don't like getting serious in any situation, I like to joke, I like to have fun and keep the atmosphere
light and make people laugh."

"Some love it, some hate it, some think it’s outstanding and some think it’s ghastly. But that’s okay.
I dress for myself. If I feel good about what I’m wearing when I step out, that is all what matters."

"Fashion philosophy is you expressing your personality through your attire. People think fashion is
conforming to the norm, to the trend, but for me it’s the opposite. Not conforming and being yourself,
wearing what you want and what makes you feel good… that is fashion."

"I want to wear a neon suit at the next Filmfare Awards. Last year at the awards I wanted to wear a
lime green or a pink suit. But then I wore those colours for my performances on stage. I will start a
trend of neon suits."

do I shop for myself, even others shop for me."

"I love socks. The most quirky I go with is my socks."

"They (parents) are happy and this happiness has come after a long time. They are among those
parents who spend their entire lives making their kids happy. Papa was the lone earning member.
My mother had discarded her career so that she could devote time to us. We, as a family, went
through ups and down. Today I’ve only one agenda in my life: to keep my parents happy. They
are proud of me."

"Some girls are crazy about me. They go mad. Men have also stalked me. I get embarrassing
messages on Twitter. Though I don’t feel uncomfortable easily, I don’t like such messages."

"In our country, sex is still a taboo subject. It’s high time we discuss it in a healthy manner. People
should be made aware of diseases like STD and HIV and issues like unwanted pregnancy etc. Sex
education is inadequate here. Promoting condoms is necessary. When I was given this chance to
fulfill a social responsibility, I agreed. I’m comfortable with my sexuality. If you have a connection
with the youth, if you can use your celebrity status or stardom to bring awareness, why not?"

"I’ve learnt that you shouldn’t take people seriously, whether they praise you or trash you."

"I have a slight problem with the institution of marriage in general."

"I love aunties! And aunties love me! I love interpersonal interaction, large crowds and mobs.
The mob thing excites me."

"I wanted to be an actor because I was fascinated with all of Anil Kapoor’s films. I watched them
as a kid and wanted to be a hero myself. I have seen his movies multiple times."

"I’ve had different phases with my sister. While growing up, she was protective of me. We’ve even
had an antagonist phase with each other. When I went to college, it started changing. Now, she is
not like my sister but a second mother to me. I am really transparent with her. And I don’t even
think twice before I tell her everything about my life. I’m so happy that my circumstances have
come about in a way that allows me to be close to my sister. I’m really protective about her. She
is my life. But she doesn’t talk to me about herself as much as I talk to her."

"My definition of success is not how much money you have, how many cars you have or what
you’re wearing. The way I define success is how you touch other people’s lives and how many lives
you are able to make better."
