After marrying Deepika, I felt that I have achieved something for the first time: Ranveer Singh
It is of no doubt that Bollywood star Ranveer Singh has had a phenomenal 2018. Be it his back-to-back box office successes, or his marriage to Bollywood superstar Deepika Padukone, Ranveer has had many reasons to celebrate the past year.
Talking about the past year, Ranveer reportedly said, "2018 was an insane year. With Padmaavat, I got my biggest commercial success as well as an avalanche of acclaim. And it was all for a part that many people initially suggested me to not take up. Playing a negative character was a huge risk and a big gamble but it clearly paid off in a massive way. Then, Gully Boy turned out to be a really fulfilling creative experience. It getting selected for the Berlin Film Fest came as an awesome piece of news. But last year, I also lost my naani (maternal grandmother), which was very unfortunate. However, it brought the entire family closer, and that’s how I choose to look at it. Then, I got to do full ‘herogiri’ in Simmba. I think I was born to do that – be a massy masala film hero. It was a very rewarding and the most fun experience I’ve ever had."
Taking about his dreamy wedding woth Deepika Padukone, Ranveer said, "Honestly, it’s an amazingly blessed time. I am really happy about everything but the best part of it all is that I’ve got married. You know, in spite of everything that has happened in my life, it’s the first time I feel that I have achieved something, ke maine life mein kuch kiya hai, kucch ukhada hai (laughs). It’s a really warm and wonderful feeling. I feel so grounded, secure and empowered. It feels as if I have a superpower now. With her on my side, I feel invincible and protected knowing that there’s someone who cares about me. Our relationship is really stronger and deeper than ever before."
Ranveer's latest movie Simmba crossed Rs 100 crore mark in just 5 days of its release. His next. Gully Boy is set to release in February this year.
