Ranveer Singh has had a fantastic 2018. He began the year with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus, ‘Padmaavat’, which is the highest grossing movie in his career. To make things better his performance as Alauddin Khilji is touted as one of the finest performances of this year. He ended his year with Rohit Shetty’s ‘Simmba’, which has been doing great business at the box-office. He then went on to team up with Zoya Akhtar and Alia Bhatt in ‘Gully Boy’. He also went on to sign Kabir Khan’s ’83 that will see him playing the legendary ex-cricketer, Kapil Dev.

On a personal front, the actor finally tied the knot with love of his life Deepika Padukone. 

“2018 was an insane year. With Padmaavat, I got my biggest commercial success as well as an avalanche of acclaim. And it was all for a part that many people initially suggested me to not take up. Playing a negative character was a huge risk and a big gamble but it clearly paid off in a massive way. Then, Gully Boy turned out to be a really fulfilling creative experience. It getting selected for the Berlin Film Fest came as an awesome piece of news,” said Ranveer Singh in an interview with Hindustan Times.

But the year wasn’t all uphill as the actor suffered a loss. 

“But last year, I also lost my naani (maternal grandmother), which was very unfortunate. However, it brought the entire family closer, and that’s how I choose to look at it. Then, I got to do full ‘herogiri’ in Simmba. I think I was born to do that – be a massy masala film hero. It was a very rewarding and the most fun experience I’ve ever had,” he said. 

Ranveer also spoke about his relationship with Deepika and how they have evolved as people in last six years.

“She and I have been seeing each other for six years. So, over a period of time, we have grown and evolved together. Deepika is not the same person that she used to be six years back and neither am I. Our growth and evolution happened while we stayed connected. So, our evolution [as human beings] has happened together. It’s really stronger than ever before,” he concluded.
