People can don only so many capes and sport a handful of looks with finesse, but our birthday boy is known to defy rules. He can go from being your charming Delhi boy and a lootera of hearts to a bawdy and fierce gunda. And that’s just his on-screen presence.
Ranveer Singh has his identity marked on a lot of things: versatility, drastic style evolutions, and a whole lot of energy. A true entertainer at heart, he’s been winning us over with iconic transformations and a gripping cinematic presence. A fiery spirit by action, he blazes through like a storm of wonder. The actor turns 33 today, and we’re celebrating his incredible transformation with his cinematic spectacles.
Band Baaja Baaraat
The two-time Filmfare awardee knew his debut role a little too well. It was a role, which laid down his mark and set the tone of what is being carved out for us to witness. Bittoo Sharma had Dilli blood running through his veins and that’s just to define his eccentricities. He bajaaoed his bold ways through the Bollywood baraat, and we love him all the more for it.
It’s been five years since we fell in love with Ranveer Singh in his period drama, and the blissful experience isn’t dying down anytime soon. It was a delight to watch him waltz his way through this saga of tragedy and romance. As we set eyes on the charming Varun on this epic canvas, we knew Ranveer’s palette boasted of more colours in its collection.
Playing an outlaw involved looking like one, and soon began the reign of the intimidating moustache and scruffy hair. Bikram’s love for Bala also chronicled the brewing bromance between Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor, and the incessant babas assure us that the love isn’t going away anytime soon.
His entriyaan as the relentless Bikram had our hearts going tang!
Dil Dhadakne Do
He can play the rich kid and the criminal, nothing’s too off-the-top for him. And man, does he clean up well! Ranveer’s Kabir was a reminder of how effortlessly the actor can pivot through extreme roles, fitting right amidst the rubble of the streets or the elegance of the Delhi Gymkhana.
Coupled with a string of Bollywood successes was also Ranveer’s style boiling up to all shades of vibrant and eccentric. The floral suits and the snazzy shoes—he’s known to be too befikre about it.
Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani, and Padmavat
Controversy and grandiose etched across three of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s greats, the magnificent historical spectacles marked the peak for the actor. He has played the forlorn lover and the formidable ruler more than once and won the Best Actor and our hearts in the process. He plunged himself in drastic transformations marking the historic turns, balancing between royalty and fierceness.
He managed to be the Ram to his Leela in real life as well, as the two continue to dazzle B-town with their cuteness. No, seriously, a Ranveer who can’t stop raving about Deepika and commenting on her pictures like a star-struck fan is one for keeps!
He has the roving style, a comic sense, which finds its place in the headlines, and talent that can make an industry go gaga over him in just eight years–is there anything Ranveer Singh can’t do?
