Ranveer Singh Bhavnani

Early Life

He was born 6 July 1985 into a Sindhi family in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. He has an elder sister named Ritika Bhavnani.[2][8][9][10] Singh is the maternal cousin of actress Sonam Kapoor and producer Rhea Kapoor, daughters of actor Anil Kapoor and wife Sunita Kapoor (née Bhavnani).

Ranveer Singh had always wanted to be an actor since his childhood. However, during his college days, he felt that the idea of acting was far-fetched and focused on creative writing.

While pursuing his Bachelor of Arts degree from Indiana University, he again became interested in acting and after coming back to India, he started auditioning for lead roles in the Hindi film industry.


He made his acting debut in 2010 with a leading role in Yash Raj Films’ romantic comedy Band Baaja Baaraat. The film emerged as a critical and commercial success, earning Singh a Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut.

Singh rose to prominence with starring roles in the acclaimed romantic drama Lootera (2013), the tragic romance Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela (2013), the action-drama Gunday (2014) and the comedy-drama Dil Dhadakne Do (2015). Singh’s acclaimed portrayal of Bajirao I in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical romance Bajirao Mastani (2015), one of the highest-grossing Bollywood films and for which he won several accolades including the Filmfare Award for Best Actor, established him as a leading actor in the Hindi film industry. His highest-grossing release came with Bhansali’s period drama Padmaavat (2018), in which he portrayed Alauddin Khilji to critical acclaim.
