Last year, Ranveer was famous. This year, he is ubiquitous. You can’t flip a TV channel, pass a billboard or open up a tabloid without seeing him. The dynamic actor has been featured in GQ’s list of 50 most Influential young Indians …this year’s GQ’s new establishment list, which reflects the youthful population of a dynamic economy who have a new vision for India and the chops to make it happen.
Compared to the Juhu boys with famous last names, Ranveer is the one who has his safety net closest to the ground, but he still takes the biggest risks. Some say that makes him crazy. But it’s never the same Ranveer to critique. From the super macho Bajirao in a stupendous period film to the energetic human cartoon of a MakeMyTrip ad, to the dapper circus master waltzing down the closing walk for Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna at GQ Fashion Nights – he not only knows how to play to an audience, he knows how he has to play to which audience, something he makes look effortless, something that has also left him peerless.
