Happy birthday, Ranveer!
There are enough young blokes with talent, looks and personality in Bollywood. But Ranveer Singh's delicious lack of self-consciousness stands apart.
It powers his high-octane energy.
It colours his jolly shenanigans.
It shapes his freestyle stardom.
"Everything I do, I approach it with the sense that I will never be able to do this again -- this film, this shot, this performance," he explained once.
The Simmba star's round-the-clock entertainment have made him a sought-after movie star.
Sukanya Verma lists 10 things we love about the actor, who turns 33 today.
Don't let his fun side fool you. When it comes to his work, Ranveer pulls out all the stops.
From Bittoo to Bajirao to Bhalerao, his ability to submit to a character or adapt to another era adds to the fun of watching him unfold on silver screen.
Ranveer's sartorial shockers are no less anticipated than Sonam Kapoor's stylish numbers.
Even his worst critics have realised there's no point outraging about the man's dedicatedly over-the-top dressing sense.
It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but, boy, does he pull it off!
Ranveer's 90s love is impossible to miss in the fond selfies he grabs with its stars, the numerous tributes he pays to its icons and the hilarious throwbacks he pulls out from his nostalgia trove.
Just the other day we carried a profile of his fitness zeal.
Who wouldn't take it seriously when the results are so va va voom?
He posts a super hot picture. She comments 'mine.'
She shares a come-hither pose. He writes, 'don't look at me like that.'
Rumoured to tie the knot later this year, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh's public flirting is all kinds of cute.
Some of the best dancers in the business are full of spunk and impulses. Ranveer Singh's one-of-a-kind beat gets that very, very well.
Sense of humour
If glimpses of Ranveer's kiddie album are anything to go by, his wacky image is certainly not news for his near and dear ones.
Ranveer is NEVER boring. It reflects in his being, his beard and his continuously changing mane.
Condom quotes ('I always carry a condom in my wallet') and virginity revelations ('I was around 12') in magazines, open sexuality (Padmaavat) and padded underwear (Befikre) in movies, Ranveer is a daredevil in more ways than one.
