Starting his career from the movie, “Band Baaja Baaraat” where he played a typical Delhi boy to being the Alauddin Khilji in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati in 2018, the flamboyant Ranveer Singh completed his 9 years in the film industry. Where getting a role in the Yash Raj films was a privilege for him, he made his career without having any deep-rooted connections in the film industry.
The actor was born in a Sindhi family on 6 July 1985. His grandparents shifted to Mumbai from Karachi at the time of partition.
Singh has always been really passionate about acting from his early life. Acted and participated in various dramas and plays in his school and college, he aspired to become a successful actor one day. Sooner or later he realised that to get into this film industry is not an easy job. Only well-connected people get the break. Needless to say that his enthusiasm still did not go down. He went for auditions after auditions but could not get a desirable role. Only a few weak roles were offered to him.
Finally in 2010 he signed his first movie with Yash Raj banner and also won the filmfare award for best debut male for that year.
His acting has been praised worldwide especially for Bajiraao Mastani and Padmavat wherein he played Bajiraao and Alauddin Khilji respectively. Singh is the favourite of Bhansali and both the films which got such critical appreciation was of Bhansali productions only, Bajirao Mastani and Padmavat. He recently played a rapper in Gullyboy.
Singh is the 5th highest paid actor of the country. In 2012, he got featured in Forbes India’s celebrity 100 list.
In 2018, he tied a knot with his longtime girlfriend Deepika Padukone. The wedding took place in Lake Como, Italy.
The pair have received alot of love and appreciation from their fans and that is the reason why they have such great chemistry onscreen.
And surely he is one of the greatest artists of our country today !
