Ranveer Singh Opens Up On His Struggle As He Completes A Decade In Bollywood; 'I Was Just Groping In The Dark, Attempting Various Avenues'
Ranveer Singh is an entertainer in the truest sense. He is a prolific actor, dancer, and everything else. Whenever Ranveer Singh is in the house, there is no dull moment. All his hard work has paid off in terms of success. But did he ever imagine he'll reach such great heights when he started off 10 years ago? Well, the Padmaavat actor revealed that he has had his own share of struggle. As he marks a decade in Bollywood, Ranveer opened up on the dark phase of his life.

In an interview with Hindustan Times, Ranveer Singh stated that for the initial three and half years of him trying to enter the industry, he was trying really hard to bag good opportunities. He said, "My struggle period was not easy at all. There was recession going on at that time, and the movie business was not very prolific so, people were making fewer films. Therefore, opportunities for actors were far lesser as compared to today. We didn’t even have any of the web, or OTT platforms. So, good opportunities were hard to come by. For close to 3.5 years, I was just groping in the dark, attempting various avenues, trying to get a break, endeavouring to get my foot in the door, doing rounds of various offices with my portfolio, looking for work, but not knowing whether it will ever happen at all."

When asked if he had imagined such success coming his way, the Dil Dhadakne Do actor said, "Not at all! Right from the very first Friday of my debut film, the kind of things that have happened to me, including the beats of my career as well as the entire journey, has just been beyond my wildest imagination. I could not even dream of the things that have happened to me, with me and around me. I can’t claim to have had the vision to dream of anything like this."

Well, we are happy that Band Baaja Baarat happened to Ranveer Singh. The actor will next be seen in '83 directed by Kabir Khan.  (Also Read: Ranveer Singh's Jayeshbhai Jordar Co-Star Shalini Pandey To Star Opposite Aamir Khan's Son Junaid Khan In His Debut Film - Report)
