Ranveer Singh On Men’s Health Magazine – Scans + Behind The Scenes Video

Ranveer Singh was the cover boy of Men’s Health Magazine December 2012 issue. Take a look at the article, magazine scans and behind the scenes video.

Two essentials, above all else, make a Men’s Health cover guy: a great attitude to life and a great body. By these yardsticks, we were told, actor Ranveer Singh fit the bill completely: shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela, he’s at the height of his physical fitness. Needless to say, we weren’t disappointed. If colours were to fly, Ranveer’s latest avatar resembled a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird that sparkled with an easy confidence to give off a vibrant power-packed performance. When questioned about his endless bouts of energy, he simply shrugged and said: “I like to please people and stay positive. It makes me happy enough to do whatever you want me to do.”

Over to the actor on his beliefs, biceps and beyond…

On ethics

I’ve had some bad professional experiences, and all of them have taught me one very precious lesson: that if you don’t approach your work in an ethical manner, you’ll never end up at the winning end of the stick. All that you need to do is stick to your principles; morals are relative. I’ve been wronged on the professional front and it’s taught me that without ethics, you won’t go far.

On fitness begetting confidence
Physical fitness is a measure of your confi dence. There is no denying the fact that fi tness goes a long way in defi ning how you perceive yourself. It also aff ects other people’s perception of you. I feel more confi dent when I am in my best shape. Of course, many other factors come into play here that defi ne your personality. If you are a secure person, it shows in the confi dence you exude. No matter what you do, if you are good, it shows. But the fact remains that all these traits are subjective. There is no way you can quantify, or even qualify, these things. These things are very individualistic. Physical fi tness, on the other hand, is one aspect that applies to everyone across the board.

On physical versus mental strength
Acting, says Sir Michael Caine, is like performing a surgery at a carnival. I totally believe in it. It’s important for an actor to be able to focus in the midst of all the chaos around him. Your mental strength comes first. One of the things I have learnt while training is that your mind gives up before your body. If you have an iron will, you can conquer any physical limitation. Imagine you need to complete 15 reps, and at 13, you are ready to give up. One way to overcome this problem is by thinking of things that piss you off . When you channel your angst, you feel happier!

On changing fitness routines
I started out with traditional weight training and then moved on to Crossfit. Till last year, I was a big believer of functional training. But now I am on a diff erent training programme: Drastic Transformation Programme (DTP). It’s formulated by Chris Gethin, Hrithik’s trainer, who is a celebrity in the world of body building. It involves 12 weeks of really hardcore training (diet and workouts). It takes a lot of commitment and discipline, but gives amazing results. You can’t stick to just one programme—you have to evolve your routines to get the best for your body.

On the importance of the right diet
When it comes to body building, 70 per cent focus should be on diet and the rest on training. What you invest in yourself is what matters the most. It’s something we know, but I’ve only understood the real meaning of it during this training programme. I am on a blood group diet, so there are certain meals I am not allowed, such as chicken. Except chicken, I can pretty much eat anything as long as it is prepared in a healthy way. I prefer everything steamed, sans any masala, but I make it exciting by adding tabasco or vinegar.

On making time to exercise
There are men who whine and complain that they don’t have time. But they have to have the will and the motivation to make time. For my DTP, I’ve had no cheat days and I started this programme with Lloyd, my trainer, on the day I started shooting for my film Ram Leela, six weeks ago. In spite of 12-hour shifts, we still made it a point to get the workouts in, even if it meant waking up at 5am. I had to make sure that I ate at a particular time no matter what was happening on the sets. If you are determined, you’ll make time for your workouts, no matter what.

On the importance of targets and rest
Have a target and you’ll get there faster. I’ve achieved so much in six weeks. At this rate, I don’t know what I will look like in another six weeks. But I have set new targets. There are a lot of things I want to change about my body. I am working on my weaknesses and will have a fit body in six weeks. But the trifecta of fitness is diet, training and rest. You have to rest your muscles so they can perform the next time you employ them. Get someone to take note of your progress. I am happy that my trainer plays this role for me and tells me when to stop.

On dealing with women
I once walked up to a girl and told her that I have a major crush on her and would like to take her out. I was very upfront and straightforward about it. But she shot me down. That was my most blatant rejection from a woman. I guess the only way I could deal with it was by moving on to the next one (chuckles). But when it comes to women, men have got to start reading the signs. You’ve got to be alert and super aware of the signs that are coming back at you. If you can read those, you’ll know when to draw the line. One very important indicator to watch out for: if she’s not laughing at your jokes (even the funny ones), there surely is a problem.

Ranveers tips to focus and improve mental strength
Listen to music—it’s what I do and it works wonders!
Take deeeeeeeeeeeep breaths. Everything seems to slow down so you can put your mind to the task.
Meditate. Spend time with yourself. Spend time alone. Introspect.
Channel your most powerful emotion—which is generally anger. Use it positively especially when you’re working out. The results are amazing.
Stay positive. When you’re happier, things come easier to you, including focus.

Video: Aamir Khan, Reema Kagti & Rani Mukherjee Have Fun On The Sets Of Talaash

Though Talaash is publicized as a serious subject none of that is seen in these behind the sets making videos! The cast and crew have loads of fun on the sets of Talaash. Rani Mukherjee, director Reema Kagti and Aamir Khan are the usual pranksters here on the sets. Kareena Kapoor once said that in her entire career she was only scared of one director, and that was Reema Kagti. But in this video we can see that she’s such a chilled out person and in fact the leader of pranks on the sets. During an intense scene, Reema Kagti, Rani Mukherjee and the rest of the crew staged a prank on Aamir Khan. Check out the fun filled the behind the scenes making video from the sets of Talaash.

Talaash hits the screens on this Friday and it’s a suspense drama.
