Actor Ranveer Singh says he wants to explore something new with each of his project, and keep on evolving as an artiste.

“As an artiste, I have always wanted to entertain audiences, at the same time offering something new to them with every film, with a constant endeavour to push myself to evolve as an actor,” Ranveer said in a statement.

“With ‘Simmba’ again, I was doing something absolutely new, thus adding a new dimension to my repertoire,” he added.

Last year, Ranveer garnered applause for essaying the role of villainous Delhi Sultan Alauddin Khilji in “Padmaavat”. At the moment, he is enjoying successful run of “Simmba”.

Ranveer’s performance as the corrupt police officer Simmba, who has a moral turnaround to become the saviour of justice, has been getting positive response from critics and audiences.

Rohit Shetty’s “Simmba”, an action-comedy drama, revolves around a corrupt police officer who eventually stands up against rapist. Also starring Sara Ali Khan, the film opened on December 28 last year. It has crossed the Rs 100 crore mark.

Talking about the film, Ranveer said: “I had never done this kind of out and out masala entertainer — a kind of movie I had always wanted to do. I’m extremely grateful to the audience for the love they have showered on my performance and on the film. It is encouraging and truly humbling. It has been an absolutely incredible year for me, and the success of ‘Simmba’ makes it an ideal way to end the year — on a huge, huge high.”

Ranveer Singh credits the success of “Simmba” to Shetty’s vision.

“I want to thank Rohit Shetty for believing in me and making me his hero. Rohit’s vision propelled by the collective effort of his entire team has been the sole reason behind ‘Simmba’ hitting the bullseye. It has been an absolute honour to work with him and his stellar team. Their large-hearted mentoring and exemplary work ethic has spurred a tremendous growth in me as a performer.

“I am looking forward to our next creative collaboration,” he said. (IANS)

With the success of his two projects “Padmaavat” and “Simmba”, Ranveer Singh has delivered Rs 500 crore nett box office in India within a single year. The actor says he wants to stay away from letting this get to his head, and that he is focussed towards becoming the “best entertainer”.

On his success, Ranveer Singh said in a statement to IANS: “I’m uncomfortable in these scenarios, in these discussions, people discuss money and I start scratching my head. I feel I should protect myself now more than ever before from these sorts of things. I find myself receding because I don’t know where this will take me, whether it will colour my thinking because I have been a certain way.

“So far it has worked for me, and I hope to continue as the same kind of artiste and very committed to protecting that integrity that I have towards my art, craft, and I don’t want to start with making choices that I have to do with anything other than honesty, that will be the death of me.”

He knows the number game and what it means.

But Ranveer said: “I also want to stay away this getting into my head. I want to protect the sanctity of my craft and my love for cinema. I have followed a certain ethos that has brought me to this position and I don’t want to change that and don’t want to get into making choices thinking when we do that film, it seems like a Rs 300 cr prospect.

“It is not about the numbers for me, it is basically to entertain people, to entertain as many as i can and as much as possible. I keep that purpose of life, i’m an entertainer and I want to be the best entertainer. It’s a single point agenda for me and a personal ambition,” he added.
