Ranveer Singh says filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, under whose direction he worked in “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela”, has changed his ideas about acting and helped him to evolve as an actor.

At the “You and me” song launch event of his upcoming film “Befikre” here on Tuesday, Ranveer said: “Mr Bhansali broke my ideas and notions about acting. There was a spike in my evolution when I worked with him for the first time. He comes and changes everything, and you have to adapt the fluidity of his creativity that moment and go with it with full conviction.

“It was a huge evolution working with him.”

Ranveer is next working with Bhansali in “Padmavati”. He says while he is not a “method actor” — a term that he feels is used loosely — he does “have a process which changes with every film, every character and every scene”.

About “Befikre”, which celebrates the feeling of being carefree in love, the 31-year-old actor said: “‘Befikre’ is a film of banter, a lot of walking and talking. There are many humorous dialogues. That casual quality in a relationship adds a value to the film.”

Of working under Aditya Chopra’s direction, Ranveer said: “I think Adi sir is a blend of both credibility and commerce. He is one director who really engulfs a very wide spectrum of audience. It will be subtle nuance, incredible and completely entertaining. At the end of the day, he is a full on mainstream director.”

“Befikre” will release on December 9.
