“I think that’s because in the Ang Laga De song, I am wearing that white dhoti too low,” he explains. Asked if all the sudden attention takes him to cloud nine, he says, “More than elated, I am relieved that all the hard work that went into the movie has been duly recognised. Ram-Leela was emotionally and physically very draining. So I am relieved that it has been so well-received.”
Ranveer is thankful to the film for one more reason. “Now the attention of people has shifted from my personal life to my professional life. The shift started with Lootera but after this film, it’s nice to see that the shift has happened completely.” So has he become more politically correct after the infamous ‘loveria’ interview about his rumoured relationship with co-star Deepika Padukone? “Not politically correct, but tactful? Yes. I have understood that I need to be more tactful,” says Ranveer.
