"I’m very secretive about it."
Ranveer Singh is busy promoting his upcoming comedy-drama Jayeshbhai Jordaar.
In the film, Ranveer plays a man who goes on a mission to protect his wife and unborn child from a patriarchal society.
The film touches upon themes such as female foeticide and gender discrimination in a quirky manner.
During most of his promotional interactions, Ranveer has discussed things like family, taking time out for his folks, and his life with Deepika Padukone.
In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, Ranveer was asked if he has any names picked out for future kids.
Saying that he constantly obsesses over kids’ names, Ranveer said: “I don’t know what it is, I think it’s because I have a copyrighter in me still somewhere lurking.
“I have an obsession for names. I am fascinated by unique names.
“Every name phonetically has a different quality. Some are very powerful names, some are cute names, some are short names.”
Ranveer Singh also disclosed that he has a whole list of names prepared for his future kids.
Refusing to reveal them, he said: “I’m very secretive about it because I don’t want people to steal them.
“I don’t want them to get common. I do have a list but I’m playing that card very close to me. But, I’m discussing them with Deepika.”
Ranveer also told Pinkvilla that he deeply respects Deepika’s opinion, and said that she is brutally honest with him.
After watching the Jayeshbhai Jordaar trailer, Ranveer said, Deepika repeated something that she’d told him after watching his transformation in the sports drama 83.
He said: “She was like, ‘Man, I don’t think I’ve seen this in… What you’re doing is quite unprecedented, because you are bonafide mainstream, yet you can, time after time, create distinctive characters.
“I don’t know of any other reference point of a mainstream actor who can go so distinctively into characterisation, yet fully in the mainstream.
“It’s like when one sees you, one sees no trace of you. You’ve taken it to a degree that is unprecedented.’
“That was something she told me after Kapil, and she repeated it after she saw my avatar as Jayesh.”
Jayeshbhai Jordaar stars Shalini Pandey as Jayesh’s wife while Boman Irani and Ratna Pathak Shah play his parents.
The film is helmed by debutant director Divyang Thakkar and backed by Aditya Chopra under the banner of Yash Raj Productions.
Jayeshbhai Jordaar will be released in cinemas on May 13, 2022.
Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone fell in love with each other while shooting for their film Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela.
The couple kept their relationship low key and dated for several years before getting hitched in 2018.
