Ahead of his Friday release Vunnadhi Okate Zindagi (VOZ), directed by Kishore Tirumala, Ram says that he’s satisfied as an actor. “I have experienced situations where I am either super confident that the film will do well or not, but this is a new experience where I am content with what I have done. Success would just be a bonus for me,” he reveals, adding, “The film has been an enriching experience. The very next day after I wrapped it up, I started missing my character Abhi.”

Ram adds that the romantic entertainer showcases the different phases of life of the protagonist – childhood, college days and as a mature person. “The film talks about love and friendship,” he says.

 

Justifying the gaps he was taking after every film, the actor says, “I took a gap after Hyper because nothing excited me.” He adds, “The film gave me a new perspective such that I don’t remember the effort that went into my role. I have decided to be genuine for this role. Be it laughter, humor, crying, playing guitar (I went for guitar classes) – everything has to be authentic,” shares the actor.

Ram, who loves globetrotting, says that travelling has shaped his personality. “It widens your thought process. As a kid, I was very disciplined. And for my first film (Devdas), my shooting schedule to the US was cancelled seven times; even worse was the fact that I packed my bags one month in advance! But now I travel on impulse,” he reveals, sharing, “I travelled to several countries with an empty suitcase. Travelling has transformed me into a better individual. Also, when you travel abroad alone, you get to know the ground realities.”

The actor has gone for a slight makeover for his role and shopped for his costumes in Dubai. “I keep abreast with the changing fashion trends. So in my films I follow a mix of Indian and international styling,” he explains, adding, “In my wardrobe, you’ll find clothes in all different sizes (laughs). I buy new clothes, and suddenly I have to either put on weight or come down for a role.”
