10 Years Of Ranveer Singh: Tracing The Journey Of The Blockbuster Star


ISLAMABAD, December 10 (online): When a young and aspiring Ranveer Singh made his debut in Band Baaja Baaraat a decade ago, it was clear a star was born, but it was also the birth of a promising actor driven by unconventional looks and unique style. Actors who take a while to impress fans with their appearances are often labeled as unconventional, and Singh was no exception.
And despite the gazes filled with disdain and dissatisfaction, not many could deny he had in him to be right at the top. It was an impressive and impressionable debut in a film that’s still hailed as one of Yash Raj Films’ most memorable and accomplished projects. It also marked the arrival of Anushka Sharma, who already made her debut with Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi two years before.
For all the criticism that came Singh’s way for his hysterical persona and hyper-active energy, it all boiled down to a hushed and restrained performance in Vikramaditya Motwane’s luminous Lootera in 2013. Lovingly staging his frames with abundant help from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s cinema, whom he assisted on Devdas, Motwane gave a love saga that was both heartening and haunting.
