Known for her bold yet contentious statements, Bollywood's controversial actress and dancer Rakhi Sawant, has been deemed as a rockstar by  Ranveer Singh. 

Ranveer  said this while speaking to Indian trade analyst Komal Nahta on Zee Cafe’s show Starry Nights 2.Oh.

The program host had expressed that Rakhi is the worst celebrity she has ever interviewed.

Meanwhile, Ranveer had an epic response to this.

"Rakhi is a rock star! Rakhi, I love you," he said.

On the show, Ranveer also revealed that his 2 a.m. friend is his alter ego as he's the one who understands the actor best.

The 33-year-old actor also opened about his family and her 'other mother', his sister.

"Her nature I guess, she is very caring, very motherly and loving. She always treats me like a child. She would spend the money she earned to buy chocolates for me. Hence, I cannot even call her my elder sister, she is my second mother," he said.

Ranveer added that during his struggling days as an actor, he turned up at casting director Shanoo Sharma's place dressed up as Anil Kapoor's character Arun after learning about the news of Mr. India's remake.

“During my struggling days, it was rumoured that Shekhar Kapur was making Mr India 2 and I landed up at Shanoo Sharma’s house dressed up as Anil Kapoor’s character Arun,” Ranveer revealed.

While speaking about his initial journey in films, Ranveer revealed that the kind of films he loved were the ones in which the hero was the king and the film was larger than life. “Big muscles, big guns. Matlab mujhe bus yahi karna hai.”

He said, “I went to university and as usual I was late for everything and late for registering for class and then there was one seat for acting for non-majors. I have already acted in school and college, so I was like I can do this. The instructor asked us to perform and I did that, everyone in the class was impressed. And this is it, I am a performer.”

Ranveer's latest offering Simmba had smashed all records at the box office. He will next be seen in Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy, slated to release on Feb 14, opposite Alia Bhatt and Kalki Koechlin.

The film was recently screened at the ongoing Berlin Film Festival and received rave reviews.
