Mumbai: Actor Ranveer Singh hopes his forthcoming movie `Lootera` gives the audiences a taste of his versatility.

"When I signed this film (`Lootera`), I thought the audience will get to see something different from me. I play an intense lover. Hopefully, people will get to see that I can act, there is intensity and depth and a range of emotions," the 27-year-old said here Sunday at a special screening of `Lootera`.

He believes it`s different from his past movies.

"In `Band Baaja Baarat` my character was uninhibited, loud and vivacious, and `Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl` was a glamorous film... I just had to look good. It was not necessarily a performance film, but `Lootera` is," he added.

Directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, `Lootera` is a period romance and stars Sonakshi Sinha opposite Ranveer. It hits theatres Friday.

Ranveer, who is awaiting four releases in the near future, hopes each one will take him a step forward as an actor.

"A big year for me is coming up with four releases. `Lootera` this week, `Ram Leela` in November, `Gunday` in February and `Kill Dill` mid next year. So it`s a very big year coming up for me. I am quite aware of it, and I hope I move forward with each release. I think I`ll be quite happy if that happens," Ranveer said.

Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, `Ram Leela` also stars Deepika Padukone, while `Gunday` also features Arjun Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra.
