"I used to feel cagey about expressing myself."
Ranveer Singh opened up about his extravagant and flamboyant fashion sense in a recent Q&A session with fans.
The actor admitted that at one point in his life, he did feel judged based on his appearance and dressing sense but he remains unfettered by criticism now.
While conversing with his Twitter fans, the actor also revealed that he prefers a colourful palette when it comes to his sartorial choices.
A fan compared Ranveer’s dressing sense to the colourful and extravagant costumes seen at the annual Met Gala.
A Twitter user wrote: “Ranveer Singh’s been doing met gala every day for all these years.”
Reacting to it, Ranveer Singh admitted that he didn’t know what to make of it but added that he expresses himself through fashion.
He said: “I used to feel cagey about expressing myself. I felt judged. I would alter my way of being in accordance with the effects those judgments were having on me.
“At one point, I let that go. I was like, people are going to judge anyway so you do you, dress the way you want and I’m glad that I have been able to evolve into a person who does that consistently now.”
When a fan asked him the ‘secret’ behind his dressing sense, the actor said it is just who he is and not a persona he is trying to create.
Ranveer replied: “It’s not like I have plotted this persona being flamboyant in the way I dress or anything.
“It’s just me. I love wearing colours. I love things that are bright and vibrant. I have come to realise over a period of time I am more attracted to the maximalist school.
“But when it comes to spaces, like a home or vanity van, I like it all to be very minimal, almost painfully minimal.”
Ranveer is soaring high on the release of his latest film Jayeshbhai Jordaar.
The film, directed by Divyang Thakkar, sees him in the role of a simple man from Gujarat fighting his conservative family to save his unborn daughter.
The film also stars Shalini Pandey, Boman Irani, and Ratna Pathak Shah.
The actor recently penned heart-warming messages for his Jayeshbhai Jordaar‘s co-stars and team after a special screening of the film.
Taking to Instagram, the 83 actor dropped pictures with the cast with a special message for each including Ratna Pathak Shah.
The 36-year-old star shared several pictures with Ratna Pathak Shah, writing:
“A special and emotional post-screening moment with the legendary thespian Ratna Pathak Shah.”
The caption for the second image read: “She’s proud of what we’ve created.”
