If there is one actor in Bollywood who has successfully awed the nation with his acting skills and confidence right from his first film, it has to be the handsome dude Ranveer Singh! Born on 6th July 1985 in Mumbai as Ranveer Singh Bhavnani, he had always dreamt of becoming an actor right since his childhood.
Later, he realized that it wasn’t a child’s play to become an actor and gave up the thought of it. So he decided to pursue his Bachelor of Arts from Indiana University in the US and took to creative writing seriously. Yet, he pursued acting classes alongside his studies.
Ranveer returned to Mumbai in 2007 to try his luck in Bollywood. He worked as a copywriter and an assistant director before he took to acting seriously. He sent his portfolio to several directors, and was finally called for an audition from Yash Raj Films. After a few rounds of auditions, he was selected for the role of Bittoo in the romantic comedy ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ opposite Anushka Sharma.
The shooting lasted from February 2010 to September 2010, with Singh staying at the Delhi University campus to get into the skin of the character. The film opened to positive responses and was successful both critically and commercially. Ranveer was awarded the Filmfare Best Debut (Male) Award.
He appeared in his second film ‘Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl’ opposite four heroines including Anushka Sharma. The film got mixed reviews from both audiences and critics. Ranveer will star in his third film ‘Lootera’, which is a love story based in the 1950s, and will star Sonakshi Sinha opposite him.
In his personal life, Singh has been in an on-off relationship with Anushka Sharma. He was also linked to co-star Sonakshi Sinha.
