Ranveer Singh on Tuesday said he was the first choice of Aditya Chopra for “Befikre” right from the beginning despite the director having Shah Rukh Khan star in all his three films he made in his near three-decade long career.

“Befikre”, which also stars Vaani Kapoor, is set to release next month.

“I am the least territorial person; I don’t think I am entering anyone’s territory. Adi sir wanted to make the film with me and I am involved in the project from its scripting. I am glad that my mentor has given me the opportunity to work under his direction. It’s a big deal for me,” said the actor at the launch of “Befikre’s song “You and I” here with Vaani.

The film has three songs, composed by Vishal-Shekhar and written by Jaydeep Sahni.

Earlier Ranveer worked with Aditya Chopra on “Ladies VS Ricky Bahl” where Chopra penned the story of the film.

Noting that after Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan, he is the only actor in Bollywood directed by Aditya Chopra and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, he said: “I am so proud and happy. I think I am lucky to get such opportunity. Though I want to work with big names of Bollywood, I also want to work with young directors and fresh idea.”

Through the film is grabbing headlines with Ranveer tagged as a serial kisser, he said that the film has got a U/A certificate. “The projection of kiss here is not wild or lust but as warm as a hug. It has been shown is a very tasteful manner… so perfect for family viewing.”

For Vaani, it is her second film after a gap of three years from her Bollywood debut in “Shuddh Desi Romance” (2013). Sharing the reason for this, she said: “Adi sir advised me to wait for the right film to come. Now that this film is ready to release, I think the wait was worth enough.”

As the film talks about new-age relationship of boys and girls where they have no time for love, asking about his opinion on the same, Ranveer said: “There is a generational shift on the perception and outlook of romantic relationship. This film represent young mind of today’s generation. Personally, I am a bit traditional when it comes to relationships.”
