Ranveer Singh: As a creative person, I would like to believe that I have no limits

Mumbai– Bollywood star Ranveer Singh, who was most recently seen in cricket drama ’83’, refuses to be put in a box creatively.

The ‘Bajirao Mastani’ actor likes to be limitless and explore his craft in his constant pursuit for artistic excellence.

Ranveer reveals, “My constant endeavour is such that you cannot put me in a box. You can’t define me. I don’t wish to be defined because I feel defining something by its fundamental nature would be limiting me. As a creative person I would like to believe that I have no limits. That I the possibilities within my craft are limitless, that they be infinite.”

The actor adds that there’s no end to how many characters he could play for the screen, “There is no end to how much I can explore and how many different people I can become. I hope I continue that and if I keep doing the same thing, then I am stagnating. I should probably take a sabbatical, gather more life experiences, put more different characters into my jholi and then come back to work.”

On the work front, he has a string of upcoming releases including YRF’s ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’, filmmaker Shankar’s remake of his blockbuster ‘Anniyan’, Rohit Shetty’s ‘Cirkus’ and Karan Johar’s ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahan’.

Aindrita Ray shoots for paranormal thriller ‘Cold’ with Vikram Bhatt

Mumbai– Actress Aindrita Ray, who mainly works in Kannada films, is shooting for her next film ‘Cold’ with director Vikram Bhatt. Akshay Oberoi will be seen alongside Aindrita in this paranormal thriller.

Aindrita says she has a great learning experience from Vikram Bhatt.

She says: “Learning from Vikram sir was the biggest takeaway for me. I have grown watching his films and I am a huge fan. We shot this film in a theatre mode where everything was staged like we do in the theatre. It’s high drama and high performance and I was stoked by the genre since a paranormal flick is absolutely new for me.”

The actress who was also seen in the web series ‘Sanak – Ek Junoon’ calls ‘Cold’ a spinechilling paranormal project and one that would be remembered for long.

“Vikram sir is a master and this is a home run for him. It has been very challenging to shoot this since a subject like this needs a lot of teamwork and especially during the Covid times and I can’t wait for the audience to watch this movie and enjoy it,” she adds.

Written by Mahesh Bhatt and directed by Vikram Bhatt, ‘Cold’ is scheduled for release in 2023.
