Biography

A true phenomenon who has had a meteoric rise, Ranveer Singh has shaken up Bollywood and is now one of India's most celebrated actors.
A self-made man and a complete outsider, Singh has become one of the most popular icons among youth on the subcontinent, and is a celebrity far beyond its borders. He is the youngest star to have attracted more than three billion viewers in cinemas with the blockbuster Padmaavat.
This talented actor refuses to be pigeonholed, whether in his choice of roles, his eccentric clothing choices or his hilarious sense of humour.
Singh has always dreamed of becoming a film star, ever since he was a child he has wanted to play the quintessential Indian film hero. After a difficult start, he made a name for himself with his first role, in Band Baaja Baaraat, a huge success that launched his career.
A showman par excellence, Singh has demonstrated his acting skills in a wide range of roles and a variety of genres. With such versatility, he is a surprise in each of his roles—examples include the lovable Bittu in Band Baaja Baarat, the exalted thief with a big heart in Lootera, or the fiery criminal in Gunday. 
He became one of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s favourite performers—and that visionary filmmaker directed him in three successive films: Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram- Leela, Bajirao Mastani and the magnificent Padmaavat, in which Singh revamped the role of the antagonist in contemporary Indian films, thereby building the anti-hero Khilji, a now-unforgettable big-screen character.
Singh has further cemented himself as one of the most gifted actors of his generation thanks to roles in Simmba and Gully Boy. Within a dozen years, he became a much sought-after actor, working with directors including the Khan family, Karan Johar, Rohit Shetty and Aditya Chopra. In Kabir Khan’s ‘83—a film that replays India's victory in the 1983 Cricket World Cup—Sing portrays the legendary Kapil Dev, the captain of the Indian team.
In 2018, Padmaavat and Simmba were resounding commercial successes; the industry banks on Ranveer, who single-handedly attracts five billion moviegoers every year. An artist who is not afraid to take risks, Singh’s upcoming films include Johar's Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani and Shetty's Cirkus.
Recently, Singh embarked on a new venture he is passionate about: InkInc, a music label dedicated to developing and building emerging artists.
