Actor Ranveer Singh is known to extend his efforts while preparing for his role in films. Before he begins shooting his next film – Kabir Khan‘s ’83, the actor has decided to go deeper into the skin of his character. Ranveer will be living with legendary cricketer Kapil Dev at his house in Delhi for 10 days before he hops on to the sets in Mumbai and kick-starts shooting of the film.

The actor plays the role of former Indian skipper in the film and he is keen to completely adopt the mannerisms and lifestyle of the cricketer for his on-screen portrayal. Therefore, he and his team have designed a strategy so that he can take the most of this opportunity and reflects a mirror image of Kapil Dev in his film.

A report in DNA revealed the news and also quoted Ranveer mentioning he is very excited to spend some days with the cricketer at his place. He lived with Kapil in Dharamshala for two days while the latter taught him some lessons of cricket including how to perfect the technique of Natraj shot. Ranveer was quoted by the daily saying, “I’m looking forward to spending more time with Kapil sir. He is kind, generous, warm and funny. I had a memorable two days with him in Dharamshala. I’m going to spend more time with him in Delhi to learn more about him.” The actor added that it’s the first kind of experience for him considering he never went on to the extent of living with someone as part of his homework for a role. He said, “It’s a first-of-its-kind exercise in my acting process where I’ll be studying the man himself in the flesh for my onscreen portrayal of him. I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to learn about life from a true legend.”

While preparing for his character in Padmaavat, Ranveer reportedly locked himself in a room for three months. As revealed by his team to the media, the actor completely shut himself from the outside world for three months and was only available for his parents on phone in the weekend. He also started living in the dark and watching crimes of tyrants.

While living with someone he is playing on-screen might be new for Ranveer, it’s quite a trend these days. Actors today leave no stone unturned in preparing for their characters and that’s the reason even Ranbir Kapoor put in a lot of hardwork while stepping into the shoes of actor Sanjay Dutt during Sanju. Ranbir lived with Baba for a few days to polish his stance as he played the reel-life Sanjay Dutt in the Rajkumar Hirani film.
