Ranveer Singh is on a roll, having had a gold run at the cinemas all through last year and this year, the accolades are still coming in for Bollywood’s very own Bajirao. The year saw Ranveer play vastly different characters with equal passion and ease. On one end, the star sunk his teeth into his well-etched role of the Maratha warrior, Peshwa Bajirao in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Magnum Opus Bajirao Mastani and on the other he was playing a natural, distinctly subdued and highly nuanced character like that of Kabir in Dil Dhadakne Do and it was a unanimously acclaimed, stand-out performance amongst heavy weight actors in the same ensemble cast While both the characters lay at different ends of the spectrum, Ranveer’s stupendous performances in both the films won hearts unanimously. After winning all prestigious film awards in 2015, he has now been conferred with the ‘Indian of The Year – Special Achievement Award’ by CNN-NEWS18.
Unfortunately, as Ranveer is shooting for his current film Befikre in Paris he was unable to collect the award himself and asked his father Jugjeet Singh Bhavnani to represent him at the event to collect the award on his behalf. Ranveer’s dad was very proud to receive this honour in his son’s stead and see his son included amongst the many other stalwarts who have been the previous winners of this prestigious award, including A R Rahman, Aamir Khan, Rajkumar Hirani, and Amitabh Bachchan.
