While talking to PTI, Ranveer Singh shared how it feels to receive all this love and praises coming his way. 

"When this happens around you, there are two possibilities – you either believe it or you are simply aware of it. While I am aware of it, I don’t start believing in my own hype. My experiences have shaped me to be the kind of person I am," he said.

"I try and adopt the middle path – don’t get too carried away with the success and don’t get bogged down by failures. I feel happy when I succeed, you must do that. But then quickly immerse yourself in the current moment again," he added.

Ranveer said that all this makes his heart filled with gratitude and everything that's happening feels surreal to him. 

"I pray before I go to work and always say thank you because I value it. It is surreal what is happening with me, or around me," he said.
