Ranveer Singh begins prep for Zoya Akhtar's upcoming crime film?
From getting his share of beauty sleep to relishing some homemade delicacies (courtesy, wife Deepika Padukone), Ranveer Singh ensured that he made the most of his free time in quarantine. But looks like, the actor is now getting back to action. Ranveer recently visited hairstylist Darshan Yewalekar's salon, and buzz suggests it has something to do with his next movie. Here's more on this.
Ranveer reportedly visited salon to discuss his new look
Per reports, Ranveer paid a visit to Darshan's Bandra salon to discuss his look for Zoya Akhtar's upcoming crime drama, that will see him don two different avatars, viz. a cop and a gangster. Darshan has previously styled Ranveer for beloved movies such as Gully Boy, Padmaavat, Bajirao Mastani and the upcoming 83. The stylist recently shared a picture with Ranveer from his salon.
He will sport two contrasting avatars in the movie
Quoting a source, Mid-Day reported, "Ranveer wants to make a strong impression with the first look and hence, went to Darshan's salon well ahead of the look test." "While he will be clean-shaven for his cop act, the actor wants to try a dramatic look for the portions that will see him as a mole in the world of gangsters," the source further informed.
Darshan called it 'the new normal visit'
Here's what we know about Zoya's upcoming project
If reports are to be believed, the yet-untitled project will see Ranveer playing an undercover cop who infiltrates an underworld gang. Zoya has reportedly bought the rights of Hollywood crime movie, The Departed, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon. Zoya's movie is expected to feature Katrina Kaif opposite Ranveer. If that happens, it will mark the first collaboration between the two actors.
Ranveer, Zoya previously collaborated on 'DDD', 'Gully Boy'
Ranveer and Zoya have previously brought us entertaining collaborations such as 2015 family drama Dil Dhadakne Do and more notably, last year's blockbuster musical drama Gully Boy. The latter was also India's official entry for the Oscars 2020.
Ranveer will also star in '83' and 'Jayeshbhai Jordaar'
That apart, Ranveer already has two major projects lined up. He is all set to star as former Indian cricketer Kapil Dev in Kabir Khan's highly-anticipated sports flick 83. He will also be seen in YRF comedy movie Jayeshbhai Jordaar, and has a cameo in Rohit Shetty's cop movie Sooryavanshi. However, all releases currently remain stalled as theaters are shuttered due to COVID-19 pandemic.
