"It is a homecoming of sorts for him," says a close associate, "After debuting with YRF's Band Baaja Baaraat and following it up with Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl, he experimented with Lootera and Ram-Leela with outside production houses. Now with Gunday, it is back to a familiar set up."
Something that truly charges up Ranveer even during the conversation.
"Yes indeed," he smiles, "I have worked with people at Yash Raj for so many years and know the unit. The camaraderie is go good and the people around me really young. Like my director Ali Abbas Zafar is one of the brightest new guys you would find in the industry. One thing that I can take from Gunday is that when there is good energy, it shows."
"Nahi, aisa nahi hota hai," shrugs away Ranveer.
No wonder, Ranveer is happy with the kind of response coming his way ever since the promo has been unveiled online.
"Gunday is the kind of film that I have grown up on. I have loved watching such movies as a kid and during my teenage years. What could be more exciting than this," smiles Ranveer who plays a Bangaldeshi refugee turned Calcutta 'gunda' in the film that is set in the 70s.
