Ranveer Singh, born on the 6th of July 1985, was always born to be a star! Anupam Kher said in one of his interviews that actors aren’t born, they are made. Had he met Ranveer before making this statement, he wouldn’t have made this statement. Perpetually on an adrenaline rush and constantly keeping everyone around him charged with his unmatched energy and enthusiasm, Ranveer Singh has every staple one needs to be a bona-fide movie star, albeit being questioned on his undistinguished appearance during his debut days back in 2009. But that’s what makes one a HERO, right, to turn the tables on your naysayers and embedding a hypnotic impact on the consciousness of the people with the help of your weaknesses.
After having completed almost eight glorious years in Hindi Cinema, we try to decode what makes this one-of-a-kind being a standout artist in the Tinsel Town:-
1. A Befikre Fashion Sense
Others call him bizarre, Singh calls himself a bohemian. Often under the scrutiny of the fashion police for his outrageous and outlandish choices, it’s quite gutsy for an actor to be so comfortable to flaunt the kinds of clothes others would discard from a distance. Unabashed and unapologetic, the actor makes no pretensions and nonchalantly carries every outfit with ease.
2. The Lootera Of Hearts
It’s not easy to charm a woman, but Ranveer manages to woo their hearts with his insane and uncontrollable antics. Even someone as calm and composed as Deepika Padukone couldn’t stop this wave of energy hit her hard. The boy can indeed be infectious! And when most of the celebrities indulge in clandestine romance and keep their liaisons beneath the sheets, this actor goes no-holds-barred and fearlessly carries his heart on his sleeves for Deepika.
3. Acting’s Bajirao
Ranveer made a smashing debut with the 2010 Band Baaja Baaraat, and the whole nation was magnetized with his rustic ordinariness. When most of the debutants opt for perspiring in the gym to flaunt their abs and torso on the celluloid to create an impact, Ranveer chose to play a character that we often encounter lost in the crowd, whom we wouldn’t choose to look at a second time. His most layered and nuanced performance came in 2013 in Lootera, where he played a charming thief hiding a truth that could explode his romance with the love of his life. He not only portrayed the role of the fearless Marathi warrior, Peshwa Bajirao, in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus, Bajirao Mastani, but also seamlessly penetrated into the hideousness and sadism of an evil and ruthless ruler, Alauddin Khilji, in the same filmmaker’s Padmaavat.
All in all, we don’t make people like Ranveer Singh often. Let’s celebrate his uniqueness and be charmed by his soaring performances.
