"I have an immense love for life, I have a great zeal for life, I have a great lust for life, you could say, and therefore I live every day like it's my last and I do everything like it's either the first time I'm doing it or the last time I'm doing it. So, I really go after it with everything I've got," Ranveer told IANS in an exclusive interaction as the ambassador of toothpaste brand Colgate MaxFresh.
"I try and live in the moment as much as possible, and I think essentially that might very well be the secret of my energy - high energy," he said smiling and looking cool in a pair of funky shades.

"When you're interacting with your mother, you're playing the son, when you're interacting with your sister, you're playing the brother, so performance is there at every level in life. There are just different modes, different energies," explained the 31-year-old, who is an entertainer at heart.
His next big screen outing is Befikre and the title reflects his own personality in a way.
"I like to have a convivial, sort of jovial atmosphere in my life, whenever I'm working. I think that's very important. It's good for health also," said the actor, who not just gets a kick in the morning when he brushes his teeth, but also with a hot cup of coffee.

"I listen to certain kinds of music that keeps me happy. For instance, today (when the interview was conducted) I started with Urvashi Urvashi... Take it Easy Policy. I'm sure you know that song, everybody knows that song," he said, breaking into two lines from the peppy AR Rahman number which was famously picturised on Prabhu Deva in the film Hum Se Hai Muqabala.
"I believe in the philosophy, in this deep philosophy of this most famous song, Take It Easy Policy. Take it easy is the best policy," he said.
