Ranveer Singh: The sexy ‘Shaitan’ turned out to be a wedding planner
New Delhi: Anushka Sharma’s supposed boyfriend and her co-star in the hit flick ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ Ranveer Singh is no longer the ‘Shaitan’ boy of Bollywood. The actor, who struck gold with his debut film BBB, was the initial choice to play the lead in Bijoy Nambiar’s ‘Shaitan’.
However, Ranveer preferred to opt out chiefly because of one extremely sensuously steamy sex scene. This was when he was still a struggling unknown face and though filmmaker Bijoy was keen to rope him in, the shy Ranveer had his inhibitions about the raunchy bed scene which he felt may have lent him an undesirable image in the public eye.
Ranveer was particularly cautious since it would have been his debut film and, reportedly, the hot scene would have been his first screen appearance. He certainly had no intention of taking the path trodden by Emraan Hashmi.
Ranveer’s role of KC in ‘Shaitan’ ultimately fell into the laps of Gulshan Devaiah while Ranveer made his filmy debut with the soft romance ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ that won him accolades, awards and followers.
So, this is the story of how, in the end, a sexy ‘Shaitan’ turned out to be a wedding planner. And no one, of course, is complaining.
