Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh has made a name for himself in the industry for literally getting under the skin of his characters. For his next release, ‘Cirkus’, the actor will be seen taking on his first double role.
Interestingly, in an interview ahead of the film’s Friday release, the actor said it was ‘challenging’ to portray the two characters. Ranveer plays the roles of identical twins separated at birth. While most other actors playing double roles have to portray similar-looking characters, their mannerisms are starkly different from the others. But, for Ranveer’s act, both brothers had to be similar and yet different.
He explained to Pinkvilla, “It’s a comedy of errors and it’s about confusion so people have to confuse the two together. So you have to tread a very fine balance.”
The actor gave due credit to his director, Rohit Shetty and said that ultimately it was his call and that ‘nobody makes these movies better than him’.
Ranveer Singh also expressed his gratitude to Rohit for giving him the opportunity to do the films he has always wanted to try. The actor said that he wanted to star in an out-and-out comedy for at least 4 or 5 years. “So it was a dream come true for me. First time in and as larger-than-life action hero cop character and now first-time comedy and hopefully the first of many,” he told the portal.
Cirkus, also stars Varun Sharma, Jacqueline Fernandez, Pooja Hegde, Siddhartha Jadhav, Johnny Lever, Sanjay Mishra, Vrajesh Hirjee, Vijay Patkar, Sulbha Arya, Mukesh Tiwari, Anil Charanjeett, Ashwini Kalsekar, and Murli Sharma. The film which also sees Deepika Padukone in a cameo, releases on 23 December 2022.
