Ranveer prioritises fitness over fashion

In just eight years, Ranveer Singh has carved a niche for himself in Hindi cinema, essaying a variety of roles, and delivering such hits as Dil Dhadkne Do and Padmaavat.

Known especially for his comic timing, Ranveer Singh celebrated last week a fashion brand he endorses: Jack & Jones. He answered questions from Surupasree Sarmmah of Metrolife at the event in Mumbai.

How would you describe yourself as a person?

I have evolved into a person that doesn’t take pressure in any situation in life. One can only experience pressure if you allow it. It is a choice one makes. So, I don’t ever feel pressured by anything in any aspect of life.

Are there occasions when you are socially awkward?

I am never socially awkward. I have an uncanny ability to relate to, connect with or hold an engaging conversation with a wide spectrum of people from all walks of life, irrespective of their age, gender or social status. I am never really awkward unless it is like an ultra-formal situation that has protocol to be followed. Let me say protocol makes me awkward.   

Which Hollywood celebrities would you like to be paired with?  

I would like to collaborate with my favourite actors Jim Carrey, Will Smith, Cate Blanchett and Robert De Niro. 

Ranveer Singh’s classic monsoon song...

‘Rain is falling chama cham cham’ from the movie ‘Gunehgar.’

Fitness to you means?

I believe in a healthy mind in a healthy body. Fitness is a large part of my life and whenever I can, I encourage young people to live a healthy lifestyle, exercise, eat right and maintain good habits. It is hugely beneficial to a person to pursue fitness.

Fashion, fitness or grooming — what’s your priority?

They are all important but fitness is very personal and important to me. So, in order, it would be fitness, grooming and then fashion.  

Would you go to a big bash or to the quiet countryside?

Definitely a quiet countryside.

The last thing you do to wind up your day...

I like to spend time with myself and my own thoughts. That kind of ‘me’ time is invariably important.  

A habit you want to get rid of?

I want to work harder to improve my sleeping habits.
