Earlier, while talking to Mid-day, Ranveer said, “This new generation ‘me’ along with Ranbir (Kapoor), Varun (Dhawan), Ayushmann (Khurrana), recognise that we are the new guards appointed by audience, trade and the film fraternity. The onus is on us to ensure that the business of films sustains and grows manifold. We have to break the glass ceiling in every sense of the term. Keeping the commercial aspect in mind, we have to help cinema evolve.”
The actor is currently enjoying his honeymoon with wife Deepika Padukone. Both of them took wedding vows in November.
On a related note, Ranveer will next be seen in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy with Alia Bhatt. He has also signed Karan Johar’s Takht. The movie features Vicky Kaushal, Anil Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar, Janhvi Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan. Ranveer will start prepping for his upcoming film 83 from January in which he will be seen playing the role of Kapil Dev.
