After delivering Box Office hits like Gunday, Ramleela and Bajirao Mastani, actor Ranveer Singh is currently gearing up for Befikre, which is slated to release on 9 December.
When asked about how he manages to always stay calm despite his hectic work schedule, he said:
"I have an immense love for life, I have a great zeal for life, I have a great lust for life, you could say, and therefore I live every day like it's my last and I do everything like it's either the first time I'm doing it or the last time I'm doing it. So, I really go after it with everything I've got," Ranveer told a news agency recently during an interaction as the ambassador of a toothpaste brand.
When asked to talk about how he has bagged the tag of Bollywoo's most energetic actor, he said:
"I try and live in the moment as much as possible, and I think essentially that might very well be the secret of my energy - high energy."
Ranveer has won over Bollywood with his ability to effortlessly transition from intense roles to light-hearted live appearances. When asked about this, he said:
"There are different kinds of performances -- you do different characters, you're a part of different stories, each filmmaker has a certain energy that the character requires, you know, it's different. Even acting is a kind of performance, so even in life when you're interacting with people, you could say that you're playing a character."
"When you're interacting with your mother, you're playing the son, when you're interacting with your sister, you're playing the brother, so performance is there at every level in life. There are just different modes, different energies," he said.
"Life in the fast lane can be very stressful, of course, show business can be very stressful, but I've learnt that as a manipulator of one's moods, as an actor, as a performer, on a daily basis, you're manipulating your moods. So as a general rule of thumb, I try and keep things light. I like to smile a lot, laugh a lot, joke a lot."
"I like to have a convivial, sort of jovial atmosphere in my life, whenever I'm working. I think that's very important. It's good for health also," said the actor, who not just gets a kick in the morning when he brushes his teeth, but also with a hot cup of coffee.
He also revealed that fitness and music play a big role in keeping his mood upbeat.
"I try and workout. It gives you a rush of endorphins and that keeps you feeling good for the rest of the day... A good mood sort of flows from there," he said.
"I listen to certain kinds of music that keeps me happy. For instance, today (when the interview was conducted) I started with 'Urvashi Urvashi... Take it easy policy'. I'm sure you know that song, everybody knows that song," he said, breaking into two lines from the peppy AR Rahman number which was famously picturised on Prabhudheva in the film Hum Se Hai Muqabala.
"I believe in the philosophy, in this deep philosophy of this most famous song, 'Take it easy policy'. Take it easy is the best policy," he said.
