New Delhi, Jan 17 (IANS) Rannvijay Singh, who has now moved from Veejaying to acting as a career option, says given a chance he would have loved to work as a bartender in Spain.
'I think it was time for me to do something other than just TV. I'm not Cyrus Broacha. I'm 26 and I'm growing old. I needed a career which I can sustain for a longer time. Films were the next logical step for me and that's just what I did,' Rannvijay told IANS.
'But if I had an option, I would have been a bartender in Spain. It would have been a relaxed life. That's like one dream job - but I could have done that only if I would have earned enough to last me a lifetime,' he added.
Rannvijay, who was in the capital recently, has featured in three films including 'Toss', 'London Dreams' and 'Mumbai Cutting' till now. Now he will be seen in Vipul Shah's 'Action Replay', Mahesh Manjrekar's 'Ekant' and in comic thriller 'Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene'.
'All my films are almost ready for release, so I will have to start promoting them in some time. Otherwise I am keeping busy with my company EGO Custom Wheels that customises bikes and cars,' he said.
Apart from acting, he is also hosting the sixth edition of MTV's adventure reality show 'Roadies'. He has recently returned to India from Africa where he had been busy shooting of the show, the first season of which he won in 2003.
He also went for winter vacations to his family in his hometown Jalandhar, Punjab.
'I went home for New Year this time. It's been a long time since I had spent any time there with my relatives and friends. I visited so many people,' he said.
So does meeting people mean meeting girls for marriage as well?
Rannvijay laughed and said: 'I am from a typical Punjabi background and there are just too many people who send rishtas (proposals). But I'm not game for it yet. It's not the right time.'
He denied being in a relationship with any girl, despite rumours that he is dating VJ-actress Anousha Dandekar.
'I'm single right now. I have actually been single since a year and a half and I'm happy. I think if you ask a lot of people, they will say - 'My work is fine, health is fine but there's a problem with my girlfriend or boyfriend'. I don't want to be in that mode,' he said.
