Ranveer Singh who is back on the sets of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus 'Bajirao Mastani' after a sabbatical, was anxious and also very nervous to be returning to the sets and shooting from where they left off.
A source close to the actor reveals that on his way to the sets, Ranveer was a bundle of nerves and felt quite a panic as he was returning to the character and to the sets after a long time.
The source said, " While everyone has always seen Ranveer as this fun,energetic person who is always oozing confidence and full of life, the actor does have his moments where he is overwhelmed and nervous about giving a challenging performance. On his way to the sets, Ranveer was a bundle of nerves especially since he was returning to the sets post his shoulder injury .He immediately dialed his father for a pep-talk. His father completely reassured him that once he got to the sets and donned the costume, things would come back to him in a flash and ironically that was exactly what happened."
When contacted, Ranveer added, "I was extremely nervous when I drove down to the shoot. I had not faced the camera in two-and-a-half months.As I always do in times like these, I called up my father.He assured me I'd be just fine. I heard him out, reached the set, put on my costume and I immediately felt like the great Maratha warrior Peshwa Bajirao. After that I went out there and nailed it".
'Bajirao Mastani' also stars Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra.
