Ranveer Singh loves to talk about his wife and many a times, he is found talking about her in his press conferences, media interactions and so on.
Recently, at the Filmfare press conference on Monday, Ranveer reminisced about 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 was also asked about his favourite performance. The actor then went on to ask the gathered media and when someone said Khilji, the actor replied that it was his wife’s Deepika’s favourite role of his too.
Talking about his favourite role, Ranveer said,
“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.”
