He often gives his fans a peek into what he’s up to while shooting for his films. From weird dancing to paying homage to colleagues in specially shot videos, he clearly believes in spreading the fun.

Ranveer made his debut in 2010 with Band Baaja Baarat and is best known for films like Gunday, Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, Dil Dhadakne Do, Lootera, Bajirao Mastani and Ram-Leela. Ranveer is currently shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. On his 32nd birthday, here’s a look at his journey so far.

Ranveer Singh Bhavnani was born on July 6, 1985 in Mumbai to Jagjit Singh and Anju Bhavnani. He has an elder sister Ritika.

From a very young age, Ranveer aspired to become an actor. In college, though, he focused on a career in creative writing. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Indiana University in USA and later worked as a copywriter in advertising agencies like Ogilvy & Mathers and JWT.

Ranveer then decided to switch completely to acting and started sending his portfolio to production houses. In 2010, the actor was called for an audition by Yash Raj Films and was selected for a lead role in the film Band Baaja Baraat, opposite Anushka Sharma.

While considered as the boy-next-door, it was Lootera which showed Ranveer’s versatility as an actor. After that, it was Ram Leela that made him a commercial star and Bajirao Mastani marked his stamp in Bollywood as a bonafide actor and deservedly so.

Here are 5 best performances of Bollywood’s Dil Lootera: 

1. Band Baaja Baaraat– Bittoo Sharma

Ranveer Singh proved his mettle as an actor in this cinematic masterpiece. From his look to his dialogues, from the action sequences to the way he talked, to say that Ranveer’s performance was outstanding would be an understatement.

Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety

Mumbai, Jan 22: The makers of “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety” have announced that the film will now release on February 23 in the wake of the changes in the Bollywood calendar due to “Padmaavat” and “Pad Man”.

The film was earlier to release on February 9, a date when “Pad Man” and “Aiyaary” are slated to hit the screens.

The makers did not think it was beneficial for anyone if three films of this size release on the same date. So, they decided to postpone it.

“We are all aware of the recent developments with regards to release dates. It didn’t seem logical to stick to a Friday so crowded,” Luv Ranjan, writer and director of “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety”, told IANS.

A new-age love triangle set in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, the film is produced by T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar and Luv Films’ Luv Ranjan and Ankur Garg. It features Kartik Aaryan, Nushrat Bharucha and Sunny Singh.

The Bollywood calendar got shaken up after Akshay Kumar decided to shift his much-awaited “Pad Man” to February 9 from the January 25 date, leaving the pre-Republic Day release window open for a solo release for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial drama “Padmaavat”.

When “Padmaavat” was announced to have a clash with “Pad Man”, the makers of “Aiyaary” had altered its release date from January 25 to February 9.

Now, “Pad Man” and “Aiyaary” will once again be competing at the box office.
