Ranveer Shifts out of his Family Home to get closer to ‘Bajirao’

Bajirao MastaniIt is said that a star becomes an actor in the true sense of the word when he gives his all for a role of a lifetime. Ranveer Singh has proven this right by his decision to move out of his family home and shift closer to the ‘Bajirao Mastani’ set. Ever since the film has gone on floors, Ranveer has given his all, going beyond the call of contract commitments. After nursing a shoulder injury recently, he is now moving away from home to become ‘Bajirao’. 

Riding high on universal applause that he earned as the urbane, gentle Kabeer in ‘Dil Dhadhakne Do’, Ranveer is dealing with a shoulder in recovery and a tough, all consuming role for his forthcoming ‘Bajirao Mastani’. Currently, he shoots for 12 hours every day & spends another 4 in physiotherapy to strengthen his shoulder as the film requires him to perform heavy-duty action in elaborate costumes. Intense in every sense, Ranveer also needs to remain in character as ‘Bajirao’ to play this historical figure. To prepare for this part, he shaved his head and chose to live in semi isolation before the film went on floors, away from cell phones & company. 

As Mumbai’s unprecedented heavy rainfall impacts traffic, the actor feels he is losing too much time in commuting from the film’s sets to his home in Bandra. Therefore, Ranveer has decided to move into a new apartment in Goregaon to be closer to the film’s set. With traffic woes & with a shoulder in recovery, he needs all the spare time that he can get to heal & focus on his part. Therefore, the actor, who has never moved out of his family abode, has brought & moved into this new apartment for practical reasons. 

Apart from physical transformations and unhindered commitment to one single film for a year, Ranveer has chosen to leave behind the comforts of his home to ensure that no external factors impact his work for this Sanjay Leela Bhansali epic. Talk about leaving no stone unturned to get the job done perfectly!

Bajirao Mastani will release in UK cinemas through Eros International on 18th December 2015. The first teaser will be seen in UK cinemas this Friday with Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
