As Ranveer Singh turns another year older on 6th July, and although he’s found his real life ladylove, he’s been seen with a number of leading women in his career, which started in 2010.
The actor has been seen with a select few ladies on screen. BizAsiaLive.com looks back at the five best pairings of his career so far.
Deepika Padukone in ‘Bajirao Mastani’ (2015)
It would be odd to start this list without mention of one of his best on-screen romances, which in turn is actually his real wife – Deepika Padukone. Although the duo were first seen sharing the screen in 2013’s ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’, it was in their second Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial together – ‘Bajirao Mastani’ – that they chemistry took a turn. In this film, their love story seemed eternal and under Bhansali’s direction, they came across as simply perfect on celluloid.
Anushka Sharma in ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ (2010)
It was in his debut film that Singh shared the screen with Anushka Sharma for the first time. In a film which was a great depiction of a small town story, Singh and Sharma’s bond was evident as Bittu and Shruti. It was their comfort with one another which brought this story to life and with that they created a great foundation for one another before they were seen on screen again not long after.
Sonakshi Sinha in ‘Lootera’ (2013)
In Vikramaditya Motwane’s directorial ‘Lootera’, Singh was seen in a different role to what the audiences were used to and his leading lady Sonakshi Sinha gave way to a nuanced performance for him as a so-called archaeologist. Set in the 1950s, both Singh’s and Sinha’s looks were inspired by the era itself and these sombre appearances were highly effective for this film. This film created a certain magic and Singh and Sinha showed this evolving relationship between their characters beautifully.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas in ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ (2015)
Although they weren’t romantically liked in ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’, Singh’s chemistry with Priyanka Chopra Jonas is something that truly made the film the success it was. The fact that, later in the same year, they were seen as husband and wife in ‘Bajirao Mastani’ shows that these two actors are true in the full sense of the word. Playing siblings in the film, they were great anchors for one another’s on-screen love stories in the film and this was engaging to watch throughout the film.
Sara Ali Khan in ‘Simmba’ (2018)
In Singh’s first with director Rohit Shetty, he was seen playing a cop in a true masala film. However, although his leading lady Sara Ali Khan was in a short role, the two quite obviously were comfortable with one another and this translated very well in the film. One can only hope that the two are cast again in a forthcoming film together, away from the masala genre.
BizAsiaLive.com would like to wish Ranveer Singh a very happy birthday.
