The film tells the story of an adult superhero with a twisted sense of humour. Based on Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool is the original story of a former Special Forces operative who turns into a mercenary.
Ranveer unveiled his participation on Twitter, along with a photo in which the star reveals his face behind a Deadpool mask. Ranveer was previously rumoured to have turned down the role due to scheduling conflicts with Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Ranveer was offered the big dubbing role in the film, which he had to back out of due to prior commitments. A source told the daily that the Deadpool team wanted to hire Ranveer for his mannerisms and mischievous spirit. «Ranveer was extremely keen but he just couldn’t make time in his Gully Boy schedule as he is shooting at night every day» the source said.
