Ranveer reveals, “My constant endeavour is such that you cannot put me in a box. You can’t define me.

That I the possibilities within my craft are limitless, that they be infinite.”

The actor adds that there’s no end to how many characters he could play for the screen, “There is no end to how much I can explore and how many different people I can become.
