Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh is on a career high, post the stupendous success of his last release Padmaavat. The Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial emerged as one of the highest grossing films in Bollywood.
The Baand Baaja Bhaarat actor has added another feather to his cap as he will be honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award for his brilliant performance in the royal drama, as per a report in ANI.

Apart from the Lootera actor, Anushka Sharma will also be conferred with the Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award for producing path-breaking films like NH10, Phillauri and Pari.
On the professional front, Ranveer Singh is currently busy with the shooting of the much-awaited film Gully Boy. The Zoya Akhtar directorial which also stars Alia Bhatt will hit the silver screens on Feburary 14, 2019.
