The stars on their film 'Ladies vs Ricky Bahl' which will have its world premiere in Dubai
Ranveer and Anushka are excited about their second movie together
Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma are back on the silver screen again together. After the über success of 'Band Baaja Baarat', their first film with each other, Ranveer and Anushka are feeling the pressure as all eyes are on their next movie 'Ladies vs Ricky Bahl' which has its world premiere at DIFF this evening. When questioned whether they are caving under the pressure of the audience’s expectations, the stars said they are indeed feeling the pressure but will are confident they are doing their best.
Ranveer made headlines with his debut last year and he was called a natural actor with incredible talent. When asked at the press conference about his role, Ranveer said that his character was very exciting to play: “As conmen tend to be, he is a real charmer. The charmer part came to me naturally as I’m like that in real-life too!” Yes, we’re happy to say that, despite the pressure, Ranveer has his sense of humour intact.
When speaking with Anushka about her character, Ishika, the beautiful actress who looked superbly stylish in a black jumpsuit, responded, “Ishika’s a modern Indian girl - intelligent and very hardworking.”
What about the pressure they are facing regarding the movie and the audience's reaction? The stars responded, “They (the audience) always say ‘We expect a lot from you’. What can you do? You just try your best.” Anushka added, “The pressure is always there but one has to disconnect at times. We’ve just tried to make an honest film.”
There’ve been rumours that 'Ladies vs Ricky Bahl' is similar to the Hollywood film 'John Tucker Must Die', but the stars of the Hindi movie dismiss that talk. “Our movie is absolutely different from 'John Tucker Must Die'. It’s just the idea of the movie featuring three girls and a guy that’s making people think that. The cultural setting and characterisations are very different.”
The movie, however, promises to be lots of fun with Ranveer Singh’s different looks and lots of other gals starring as well (including Priyanka Chopra’s cousin Parineeti Chopra). The fun continued behind the scenes too. There was an incident in which Anushka was nearly swept to sea! Anushka reveals more, “I never felt stupider. I am a good swimmer but while shooting on a jet ski, a huge wave came at us. It was like a mini tsunami and I was very scared.” Ranveer, ever charming and dapper, came to her rescue: “I was trying to be pretty macho to protect the lady but I knew what was going on inside. It was fun to see Anushka, who is usually calm and controlled, getting scared.”
With fun, chemistry and a great cast, this flick looks like a winner with plenty of humour. Ranveer says, “It’s hardly an intellectual film, it’s a fun film. Just go with your popcorn and enjoy.”
