2018 has been an incredible year for Ranveer Singh! He has not only received incredible acclaim for his portrayal of the merciless Alauddin Khilji but he has also delivered outstanding box office collections as he recorded his first ever 300 crore blockbuster.

Ranveer Singh's acting as Khilji in Padmaavat has been hailed as 'outstanding' and 'path-breaking' and both critics and audiences have unanimously credited him for giving Bollywood one of its most iconic villains of all time.

So, it comes as no surprise that Ranveer has been awarded the Dadasahed Phalke Excellence Award as Best Actor this year for Padmaavat. Some of Hindi cinema's biggest stars have been recognized with this award in the past for their contribution to cinema.

"We take immense pleasure to inform you that you have been finalised for The Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award 2018 for the memorable role in Padmaavat," the Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award committee wrote to Ranveer announcing his award.

This is already the third Best Actor award that Ranveer has picked up for his stand out performance in Padmaavat. Given his brilliance in the film, this year should be a clean sweep for Ranveer.
