After completing more than a decade in the industry, the actor is best known for his talent as an actor and also for his unique taste in fashion.

Here are the top 5 Ranveer Singh movies, that made the audience swoon over him with his outstanding acting:
1. Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela (2013)
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film, Ram-Leela presents Ranveer as a passionate lover of a girl whose family is completely off-limits to him because of their family feud. His outstanding acting brilliantly portrayed the love that surpasses petty rivalries, family burdens, and expectations.
This film was also the start of Ranveer and his wife, Deepika’s relationship in the real world. Their magnificent chemistry was evident in this movie.
2. Gully Boy (2019)
Based on a biopic, this film captured a very important aspect of the Indian music industry. By playing the role of street rapper Murad Ahmed, Ranveer portrays the struggles and hardships of people from slums with aspirations to be known rappers.
The film became revolutionary not only because of its story but also because Ranveer gave life to the character. His persistence in fulfilling his dreams made his character inspiring.
3. Bajirao Mastani (2015)
His first historical movie, Bajirao Mastani was well-loved by the fans. Also directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, this movie was based on Maratha Peshwa, Bajirao I, and his second wife, Mastani.
Portraying the epic love story of the two, Ranveer did a brilliant job at showing the true meaning of love, which isn’t confined to religion, caste, etc. Bajirao’s character broke a lot of traditional norms in order to be with his true love.
4. 83 (2021)
Kabir Khan’s multi-starrer film, ‘83 depicts the story of the Indian Cricket Team when they won the World Cup in 1983. Playing the role of Kapil Dev, the captain of the Indian Cricket Team, Ranveer managed to bring the real Kapil Dev to the big screen with his acting, his dedication to winning, and his mannerisms.
It is not just any sports drama but is filled with emotions of the team members, and of the Indian cricket fans.
5. Padmavat (2018)
Another one of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period dramas where Ranveer Singh nailed the character with his exquisite acting skills. Unlike Bajirao Mastani, Ranveer here plays the role of the villain, Alauddin Khilji.
Based on the story of Queen Padmavati, wife of a noble king, Ratan Singh, who gets an obsessive lover, Alauddin Khilji, the story portrays the political situation of Chittor. Ranveer’s acting as the villain in this is considered one of his best works to date.
Reportedly, he used to lock himself in the room to rehearse his line in order to present this diabolical personality. This movie surely left the audience spellbound with the gripping storyline, and immaculate acting by the actors, especially Ranveer.
