Ranveer Singh@29: Life, career, link-ups and break-ups
Ranveer Singh Bhavnani was born in Mumbai on 6th July 1985, to the proud parents Anju Bhavnani and Jagjit Singh Bhavnani. He returned to Mumbai after completion of his bachelor’s degree from the Indiana University in Bloomington.
Ranveer has always been a risk taker and even in his initial days he turned down 3 movie offers and finally accepted the lead role in the film ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’. Recalling his audition for the film, Ranveer stated, "I was surprised because I knew Yash Raj does not launch new heroes. But I knew they were legitimate and I knew this would be the biggest and most important audition I would ever be giving." The rest is as they say history. The romantic comedy from the reputed production house of Yash Raj Films was an instant box office hit. The performance of newcomer Ranveer Singh was hailed by the critics and masses alike. He even received the Best Male Debutant award from Filmfare. Since then there was no looking back.
However, Singh is not a person to rest on his laurels and went on to work in diverse roles to experiment with his acting skills. His next movie was ‘Ladies vs Ricky Bahl’ in which he played the role of a conman and woman charmer. Though the film didn’t do much at the box office, his performance was appreciated. He went on to star in Bollywood big budget movies such as ‘Lootera’, ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela’ and ‘Gunday’.
He was initially linked up with his debut film heroine, Anushka Sharma. Both were seen visiting places together and the media had a field day speculating about their relationship. However this relationship didn’t last for long. The couple soon breakup and at present Anushka is seeing the talented Indian batsman Virat Kohli.
Ranveer found his new love interest in the beautiful silver screen diva Deepika Padukone while shooting with her for the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela’. Deepika was also recovering from her past two broken relations. She had earlier dated the Bollywood hunk Ranbir Kapoor which broke unceremoniously. Then her relation with Sidhartha Mallya, the son of the liquor baron also didn’t last for long. She found solace in the loving heart of Ranveer Singh.
Ranveer at present is working on multiple interesting projects. His upcoming movies are ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ and ‘Kill Dil’. He also has a special appearance in the movie ‘Finding Fanny’. We wish the actor a very happy birthday as he turns 29.
