Flamboyant Ranveer Singh!
Three films old, Ranveer Singh turns 28 today! Even as his latest release 'Lootera' is stealing the show, all the attention he's getting isn't new to him at all, thanks to his flamboyance. We take a look at some instances of the actor that kept us entertained throughout his B-town journey
After the success of his first film 'Band Baaja Baaraat', Ranveer Singh was spotted trying to jump off a fence while shooting for 'Ladies vs Ricky Bahl'. We wonder what made the actor avoid the gates.
At Shahid Kapoor's birthday party, Ranveer chose to make his relationship public. He even shared a liplock with the co-star Anushka Sharma shocking all guests at the party.
The actor is supposed to be disliking Maneesh Sharma, the director of his debut film 'Band Baaja Baaraat'. Those close to the actor say Ranveer thought Maneesh was taking a lot of credit for the film. The actor has been fast making friends with other directors and even danced for hours at Shaad Ali’s nuptials.
At a gala event in Toronto, Ranveer was seen constantly trying to create a 'tamasha'. He would either lunge towards people for a hug or a fall at their feet, depending on their seniority. This was done more in the spirit of exhibitionism than reverence.
At the screening of Kai Po Che!, Ranveer Singh took Huma Qureshi by surprise on the red carpet when he made her waltz with him. She was taken by surprise as she did not even know him!
At the red carpet of an awards, the actor tried to hog the limelight going up and down the stairs and complimenting the act with some loud pelvic thrusts.
Ranveer was specifically asked to keep a beard for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Ram Leela'. But he invited SLB's ire when he walked onto the sets with a clean-shaven look. A huge fight followed and crewmembers had to resolve the issue by suggesting prosthetics.
Ranveer invited Shatrughan Sinha's ire when he passed some rather cosy compliments to Sonakshi by saying, “I would like to date Sonakshi, she is the perfect Indian beauty”. Father 'Shotgun' Sinha was so infuriated, he summoned Sona back to Mumbai.
The actor openly threatened one of Anushka Sharma's fan when he complimented the actress. According to sources, Ranveer snapped at the fan saying, “She is my girlfriend! I will break your nose.”
Ranveer has somewhat earned the reputation for digging his co-stars. First it was Anushka, then Sonakshi and then buzz suggested he is quite close to 'Ram Leela' co-star Deepika Padukone. The two were even spotted having lunch on New Year’s Eve.
Ranveer took an instant dislike for newbie Arjun Kapoor, his co-star in YRF's 'Gunday', when he was linked to his ex Anushka Sharma. This became all the more obvious when Ranveer snubbed Arjun at a party when he tried to strike a conversation. Much later he denied all such reports and the duo was seen partying together at several instances.
At the screening of 'Bombay Talkies', Ranveer Singh was seen posing for the paparazzi albeit in a way that exposed his bushy armpits!
Apart from having a series of cold wars with industry colleagues, Ranveer Singh apparently was spotted trying “too hard” to impress girls at a Bandra club.
At a recent event, in true Ranveer style he made Srman Jain do some clowning around for the cameras.
The actor was in full form at Arjun Kapoor's birthday bash.
He involved the participant Siddharth Shukla in his act on 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa' while promoting 'Lootera' and also shook a leg with Madhuri Dixit.
On another show, 'Comedy Nights with Kapil', he posed like a tree while Sonakshi Sinha clung to him in an act
He went berserk especially when tracks like 'Tum Hi Bandhu' and 'Dilliwali Girlfriend'were played at a nightspot. Rumoured ladylove Deepika Padukone’s songs do have a strange influence on him.
Wonder what makes Ranveer try that at Sonakshi Sinha from behind!
