Your love & support has made it possible for me to live my dream
And that you became, Ranveer.
Ranveer Singh's latest film is directed by Aditya Chopra, who until now had only directed Shah Rukh Khan. The film set in Paris is Shyra and Dharam's love story wherein they discover new facets of romance. Of directing Ranveer, Aditya Chopra said: "Even before I knew that I'm going to direct this film, I was writing it for Ranveer. I would not have made Befikre if an actor called Ranveer Singh did not exist." Comparing Ranveer to Shah Rukh, he added: "From the very first day that I directed Ranveer Singh, he was Shah Rukh for me. The same energy, the same brilliance and the same intellect."
