When Ranveer Singh dressed as Anil Kapoor's Mr India character for an audition!
How many of you have read old interviews of Ranveer Singh talking about how he always wanted to be en entertainer and was an out and out Bollywood freak? Times when he would play Hindi songs and dance to them at home (who knows, maybe he still does this)! The actor, now one of the most sought after ones in the industry, is also known for this head-turning dressing sense and enthusiasm. But his wackiness was quite prevalent even during his struggling days! Don't believe us? Read on
“During my struggling days, it was rumoured that Shekhar Kapur was making Mr India 2 and I landed up at Shanoo Sharma’s (Yash Raj Films' casting director) house dressed up as Anil Kapoor’s character Arun,” he revealed while talking to Komal Nahta on Zee Cafe’s Starry Nights 2.0. They say that an actor's spontaneity is what people adore the most. No wonder Yash Raj Films finally launched him with Band Baaja Baaraat. It's safe to say that there has no looking back since.

A sequel to Anil Kapoor's superhit Mr India is actually in the works for a long time and we even heard Kapoor's son Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor might act in it. Ranveer would have been an equally interesting choice. But with the sudden demise of Sridevi, who played an integral part in Mr India, plans of a sequel were shelved too.
