The actor also went on to share that there was a time when he didn’t think he would become an actor; he was actively pursuing a writing career instead. However, things took a turn for Ranveer when he got together with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela’.According to him, the experience allowed him to experiment with his lines and gain more confidence in dialogue writing.
Elaborating further, he revealed that Karan Johar praised him and his talent and even wanted to credit him for dialogues in ‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani’. However, the actor declined it. He said that although there are actors who have taken additional credit for dialogue writing, it is not his style.
As soon as the interview was shared on social media, netizens were quick to conclude that Ranveer’s indirect dig was directed towards none other than Kangana Ranaut. There were also social media users who supported the actress for getting her due credit for the same.
While one wrote, ‘Kangana got additional dialogue credit for Queen and she truly deserved it. The dialogues which you can look up in the script that’s available online are very different from what end result’, another one added, ‘kangana didn’t demand dialogue credit on queen, she herself said kashyap gave it to her as she had improvised a lot and he felt she deserved credit… there’s nothing wrong with getting credited for something an actor has done’.
Writer Apurva Asrani, back in 2017, had a disagreement with director Hansal Mehta as they argued about giving credit to Kangana Ranaut for adding to the story, screenplay, and dialogues of ‘Simran’.
Not only that, even in ‘Queen’, Anvita Dutt Guptan wrote the dialogues for the film but Kangana, who was encouraged by Vikas Bahl to improvise her lines during the shoot, featured as an additional dialogue writer.
