Mumbai: Bollywood's high-powered and energetic performer, Ranveer Singh, turns a year older, hitting 35 on Monday. Married to Deepika Padukone, a superstar, just like him, the duo are today counted in the power couple league of tinsel town.
A decade ago, Singh entered Bollywood with 'Band Baaja Baraat' where a small town Bittoo wants to do 'biness' in Delhi. Ever since, he has grown manifolds as one of the finest and most versatile actor in the industry. From the chocolate boy look in Dil Dhadakne do, to the fierce Alauddin Khilji in Padmaavat, Singh has time and again proven his acting finesse and prowess.
Lets take a look at four of his best performance till date:
The controversial Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie was the first time Ranveer opted to play a antagonist - Alauddin Khilji. Ranveer smoothly fit into the skin of Khilji as a crazy, over the top, wild and fierce person, somewhat like his real self. His thundering performace along side Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapur was heart winning and also left at mark at the box office.
If anyone was born to play Maratha warrior Peshwa Baji Rao, it is unabatedly Ranveer Singh. His action was brilliant with equivalent counterparts Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra.
The movie also earned Ranveer Filmfare's best actor award.
Based on O Henry's The Last Leaf, Singh played an archaeologist's role in this historical romance directed by Vikramaditya Motwane. The steady and beautiful film was an instant hit for the critics, however, it failed to cast its magic at the box office.
Ranveer's performance as a con man with a dying lover was much appreciated, and deserves to be on the list. And not not just us, even his wife, Deepika agrees the it was one of his best performance.
Gooliyon ki Raasleela Ram - Leela
Again a Ranveer - Deepika pairing, Ram- Leela is an Indian adaptation of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Ram and Leela's love story as lover from two rival families isn't a new story, but their expressions, emotions and brilliant dance moves are worthy of applause. Ranveer managed to effortlessly pull off the role of rambunctious and lively Ram.
