Ranveer recently attended the 19th edition of the Marrakech International Film Festival, where he received the Etoile d'Or award. During a media interaction, he said: "This guy calls me to this seedy place and is like, 'Are you a hard worker, or a smart worker?'. I didn't consider myself to be smart, so I said: 'I think I'm a hard worker.' He was like, 'Darling, be smart, be sexy'. I had all those kinds of experiences during those three-and-a-half years, and I think it was that period that makes me value the opportunities I have now," quoted Deadline.
