To get into the real feel of his strong character, Ranveer trained himself to develop the aura which the script demanded!
While shooting for the critically acclaimed film, Lootera, opposite Sonakshi Sinha, it is known that Ranveer actually pierced his skin multiple times, to perfectly portray the emotions on screen.
For every movie he does, he ensures he gives full justice to the character he portrays, especially in his looks. Just like he sculpted his body into eight-pack abs with rigorous hard-work, sporting a typical hair-cut throughout the tenure of the film’s shoot.
With films like Highway, Udta Punjab in her list of accolades, Alia clearly knows her craft. She even went ahead with matted, bedraggled hair—for twenty days straight, to make her character of a labourer in the film Udta Punjab—look authentic.

Sometimes, you get to do such preparations and sometimes you just have to go with the flow,” he said.
The actor reportedly had a major impact on his mental health after shooting for his film, Badlapur.
