Ranveer Singh's infectious energy is something people take inspiration from and his quirkiness makes him one of the most versatile actors in Bollywood. However, the star makes sure to switch off from the world and unwind as his day gets over. He sits back, relaxes and enjoy some time of not being a Bollywood celeb.

"I do that every day. At some point when my day ends, I switch off from the world and unwind. I live a very fast-paced life, so it's very important for me to have some downtime. It helps me keep a balance," Ranveer said.

Ranveer, 33, is synonymous with being quirky when it comes to his fashion choices. He says in school too he was called atrangi (different) for his appearances.

"In my first two years, I did not make very honest choices when it came to my fashion sensibilities. I was still in the process of figuring out who I was and that reflected in my fashion choices. In my early days, the concept of appreciation and criticism was new to me.

"I remember in school too, I was called 'atrangi' because of my Mohawk, ear piercings, baggy jeans. I have always been this way. But over time, I have been in situations where I have had the chance to reflect. I now no more worry about being judged or influenced by others' opinions. I have started making choices that are authentic, especially when it comes to fashion," the actor said.

Though he gave hits with different female stars in many films, his pairing with rumoured girlfriend Deepika Padukone was appreciated a lot in many of his cinematic offerings. The grapevine also has it that Ranveer and Deepika are planning to wed in November in Italy amidst a limited crowd of near and dear ones.

But neither of them have spoken about it yet. Ranveer's next films are Rohit Shetty's Simbaa, Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy and Kabir Khan's '83, in which he will be seen portraying the role of former cricketer Kapil Dev. "It is a film based on the most glorious chapter in India's sporting history - the Cricket World Cup. I play Kapil Dev in the movie. It is my first biographical portrayal of an individual who is still out and about, doing such great work... it is an absolute honour to have been able to lead an ensemble of characters that are so significant in our history," said Ranveer.
