Ranveer Shorey is known for his excellent performances in films like ‘Mithya’, ‘Chandni Chowk To China’, ‘Traffic Signal’, ‘Singh is Kinng’, ‘Khosla Ka Ghosla’ ‘Ugly and Pagli’ etc. Now comes his latest venture ‘Fatso’. Sandeep Hattangadi spoke to the dashing young actor about his new film.
The title ‘Fatso’ seems to be the story of an overweight person.
Yes. I play that part. Basically, it is the story of four friends who have gone through life together and how their experiences together help them to grow as individuals.
How was it like working with the team?
The cast ensemble was exciting to work with. I know Purab Kohli from Channel V VJ days. Director-actor Rajat Kapoor is also a good friend of mine. Gul Panag is an absolute gem of a person. So we had a ball shooting together.
The film’s delayed release may hamper its box office prospects.
I don’t think so. Just a year back we completed the film and even big budget films get delayed. We are depending more on ‘word of mouth’ publicity to enhance the prospects of the film.
Your role in ‘Life Ki Toh Lag Gayee’ was much appreciated.
Yes. I hope it will help gain more popularity in the wake of it’s back to back releases.
I have some films coming up – ‘I am 24’, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ with Salman Khan and directed by Kabir Khan, and a film with director Anant Mahadevan where I play Vinay Pathak’s friend, and ‘Winds of Change’.
When are you going to act with your wife Konkana Sen Sharma?
(Laughs) No one has offered us any films yet.
