'I will not quit VJ-ing for acting', says Rannvijay

MTV VJ Rannvijay Singh

Rannvijay, who will be seen in Vipul Shah's 'London Dreams' starring Salman Khan, Ajay Devgan and 'Ghajini' star Asin Thottumkal, said he had a gala time working with Salman and Ajay.

"They (Salman and Ajay) are such fantastic people. We all had so much fun while shooting that I can safely say that I was thoroughly pampered throughout. Never did I feel like a newcomer on the sets of the film," Rannvijay said.

However, when asked whether the actor had plans to quit the small screen for a Bollywood career, the actor said, "I will be stupid if I leave it. It is something I love doing.

The adrenalin rush while doing 'Roadies' and the respect earned from the contestants is irreplaceable."

'London Dreams' was supposed to be the launch pad for this 26-year-old debutante in Bollywood but because of the recent strike between film producers and multiplex owners, the release of the film got delayed.

"I don't have a producer dad who could launch me the day I want to. But then I have no qualms about it," said Rannvijay who is now debuting with 'Toss'.

The film marks the directorial debut of Ramesh Khatkar, who has worked with Ram Gopal Varma as a chief associate director in films like 'Jungle' and 'Company'.

"In 'Toss' I play Ryan who is a happy-go-lucky guy and believes in destiny rather than working hard," said the 26-year-old debutante.

The film is about friendship and relationships which go through the test of time. The film also stars Ashmit Patel, Aarti Chabbria, Mahesh Manjrekar, Sushant Singh, Rajpal Yadav, Prashant Raj and debutante Madhurima. The thriller is slated to hit the theatres on August 20.

When asked if he was nervous before the release of his debute movie, he said, "There is no time for me to get nervous. Right now I am shooting in Delhi, then will have to fly back and dub for 'London Dreams', then I have shooting lined up for 'Action Replay' and soon I will be leaving for Roadies 7."

Rannvijay hopes that his fans will see a new side of him in the movie.

"I am lucky that people like me for who I am. They have already seen the real me. I hope this will attract them to theatres, see a different shade of me and appreciate my work as an actor."

Rannvijay has two big banner movies 'London Dreams' and Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai starrer 'Action Replay', lined up for release this year.

He is also working on a comic thriller 'Sharafat Gayli Tel Lene' with Anumpam Kher and Zayed Khan. The film is being made by the producers of 'Khosla Ka Ghosla'.
