Mumbai: Actor Ranveer Singh, who is working in Sanjay Leela Bhansali`s `Ram Leela`, says the filmmaker wanted him to look extremely hot in the film and that is why he went shirtless for a song.
"We were shooting a song and was supposed to wear a traditional Gujarati kedia (outfit) and in passing, we were doing some trials and I was putting on kedias and taking them off and he was like `You know what, your body is looking amazing. Now let`s just do this song shirtless`," the 27-year-old said here Thursday at the unveiling of the cover page of Men`s Health magazine featuring him.
"So, he decided just like that and then we did a section of my introduction song absolutely shirtless," he added.
Talking about the brief given to him for the film, Ranveer said: "Mr. Bhansali was very clear that he wanted me to be extremely hot. He said `Baby, when you come on the screen, I just want girls either to tear your clothes off or their own clothes off`."
Meanwhile, Ranveer would also be seen mouthing Gujarati abuses in the film and he learnt them all in Gujarat.
"I went to Gujarat, I did some research, picked up the Gujarati language. First thing I wanted to learn were the `gaalies` (abusive words), which are very interesting. I came back in four or five days and I presented it to Mr. Bhansali in a reading and he was like `This is fabulous, you must go for it`," Ranveer said.
"So, yes I am putting myself out there by infusing my own Gujarati flavour in the dialogues, and I hope it has the same impact it had in `Band Baja Baaraat`," he added.
`Ram Leela` also stars Deepika Padukone.
For now, Ranveer is now looking forward to the release of `Lootera`. Besides this, the shooting of his next, `Gunday` starts Friday.
