Actor Ranveer Singh never shies away from talking about his wife and actor Deepika Padukone. The Simmba actor shared one of the best memories with her at the Filmfare press conference on Monday.

Recalling the moment when he won the Filmfare Best Actor award for playing Peshwa Bajirao in the 2015 film Bajirao Mastani, Ranveer said, “That was the most magical night. Deepika, my wife, won on the same night for Piku, so to win with her in the same year was very special for me, special for our whole family who were present there. Rekha ji gave me the award and you know who was sitting in the first row? The man I wanted to be growing up, Amitabh Bachchan. I could not ask for more. I was an absolutely unforgettable moment and it’s etched in my mind, my heart forever and ever.”

He also asked about his favourite performance. The actor asked the gathered media and when someone said Khilji, the actor replied it his wife’s Deepika’s favourite role of his too. “For me, all my performances are special. Some films are liked, some are not liked. Some are loved, some are hated. But as a performer, you do your best and you do it with all honesty. If you ask me, my performance in Kill Dil is also special to me. I could not choose between any performance. I’m just happy to have an opportunity to be a performer,” he added.

Ranveer has been showing his rapping skills at almost all the events and parties he has attended before and after the release of Gully Boy. The actor also spoke about his love for live performances and that he goes into a trance when he goes live. “There is nothing more palpable than the energy of a live performance because the audience is right there and if you want to evoke that or emotion reaction in them, that energy is in that space,” he said.


Ranveer was seen playing a rapper named Murad in the Zoya Akhtar film. Everyone from veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan to Hollywood actor Will Smith praised him for his performance. He is currently training for his next film titled ‘83 under the guidance of senior cricketers such as Kapil Dev and Balwinder Singh Sandhu. He will be playing Kapil in the film that revolves around India’s first cricket World Cup win in 1983.
