Bollywood heartthrob Ranveer Singh loves all the attention. He admits being in spotlight is like living his dream. The actor, who is fondly called the Hindi film industrys livewire, thanks to his infectious energy and smile, says being a celebrity comes with some responsibilities — which he is happy to embrace – but doesnt let any of it take away his focus from his first love, acting.

“Celebrity life is not easy. There is a lot of scrutiny. This is compounded with the coming of mobile phones and smart phones which have a camera. There is constant attention, sometimes too much of it,” Ranveer told IANS in a recorded response from Mumbai. “But this is something you take in your stride. If you decided to be an actor, then with that kind of territory comes a lot of attention and I am only too happy to receive attention,” he added.

The actor, who made his debut in 2010 with the film Band Baaja Baaraat as a raw Delhi boy, says he was “an attention seeking kid while growing up”. “So, for me this is like living the dream. People aspire to be in the limelight, so if you have been blessed with an opportunity to be there, then you should look at it as a positive. I dont feel any kind of pressure in any aspect of my life,” said the actor, who lent his voice to Ryan Reynolds Deadpool in the Hindi version of Hollywood film “Deadpool 2”.

With celebrity status comes a certain responsibility — and Ranveer is learning to handle that.

“There are many things which you can do as a person who is not famous that you cannot do when you are a public figure. I have started understanding that slowly. But in the midst of all of this attention and noise sometimes, you cannot lose the focus of what is the most important (thing) — which is the core of what you do — which is acting in films,” he says.

The actor feels “being famous, being a celebrity, being in limelight and being a public figure” are all by-products of his profession.

“I always make it a point to not lose focus of what I am really here to do — which is to act in films. That time between action and cut is what I live for.”

The 32-year-old asserted he does not work with any load of pressure. “Pressure is only pressure if you take it as pressure. I think pressure stifles you. It will restrict you. I take each day as it comes, each gig as it comes and try and do my best at everything… It is just a habit, or has become a habit to try and give my best,” he said.
