Ranveer’s recent release ‘Padmaavat’ is roaring at the box office and creating new records every day. The ‘Band Baja Bharat’ actor has earned rave reviews from the critics and fans for his stupendous performance in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial.

The talented actor portrayed the role of Alaudin Khilji with perfection and was one the highlights of the royal drama. Considering Ranveer gives all his blood and sweat for any role, we are damn sure he will steal the show in the much-awaited movie.
