Mumbai: Bollywood’s latest blue-eyed boy Ranveer Singh, who made a big splash in B-town with his debut hit ‘Band Baaja Baraat’, is keen to shed his Delhi-boy image for his next ‘Ladies Versus Ricky Bhal’.

Apparently, Ranveer is taking part in intense workshops at Yash Raj Studio to get rid of his Delhi mannerisms. It is believed that Ranveer has locked himself in Yash Raj Studio and working on his new image.

Talking to a daily, a close friend of Ranveer said, “It`s been over two weeks that Ranveer has been practically living in Yash Raj Studio. In less than 10 days his next, ‘Ladies Versus Ricky Bahl’ is going on floors. The actor is playing a cool young boy, not from any particular region, but surely he cannot be carrying the image of `Bittu Sharma` from his debut film.”

“He has been taking workshops for his character in regard to his body language and body movements. He has also been taking diction classes to get rid of his Delhi accent. Ranveer is actually from Mumbai but everyone thinks of him as a Delhi-ite. In the past two weeks he has been practising and rehearsing for over 14 hours and only goes home to sleep. He is working very hard to change his image, so the audience can also perceive and see him in a different light. During the making of ‘Band Baaja Baraat’ he rode the Delhi buses, ate at roadside stalls, visited the local colleges, mingled with the citizens to get into the Delhi boy mould. And now he is working on the lingo and behaviour of a young cool kid of today`s generation. In this film he is a con man who dupes various girls with his charm until he meets his match with whom he falls in love," added the friend.

Meanwhile, Ranveer confirmed the news and said, “I am having my workshops with my director Maneesh Sharma. I am working hard to get out of my ‘Bittu Sharma’ image, to get into the character for my new film.”

Hmm…who said success is easy!
