Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh has been finalised for the Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award as Best Actor this year for his movie Padmaavat. He has not only received incredible acclaim for his portrayal of the merciless Alauddin Khilji but he has also delivered outstanding box office collections as he recorded his first ever 300 crore blockbuster.

Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Awards aren’t the same as Dadsaheb Phalke Award given by the Indian government.

Ranveer’s acting as Khilji in Padmaavat has been hailed as ‘outstanding’ and ‘path-breaking’ and both critics and audiences have unanimously credited him for giving Bollywood one of its most iconic villains of all time.

This is already the third Best Actor award that Ranveer has picked up for his stand out performance in Padmaavat.

Apart from Ranveer, Anushka Sharma will also be awarded by the same for her genre-defining successful movies as path breaking producer.
