Born and brought up in Mumbai, Bandra boy Ranveer Singh played a Dilli ka chhokra with such ease in his debut movie Band Baaja Baraat, that he received fantastic reviews. Singh, who struggled for almost three-and-a-half years before getting a dream break with Yash Raj movies, has dabbled in theatre, loves sports and is passionate about music. What works in his favour is his grand launch under the Yash Raj banner and his dancing skills
