‘Padmaavat’, for the first time, featured Ranveer and his ladylove Deepika Padukone not as a romantically involved pair. The film received mixed reviews but Ranveer’s performance was hailed from all corners.


At the same time, the actor entered the 300-crore club, with ‘Padmaavat’.

Apart from Ranveer, his ‘Band Baaja Baarat’ co-star Anushka Sharma will be also awarded for her pathbreaking work as a producer.
