Ranveer Singh Bhavnani is an Indian actor who appears in Hindi films. The recipient of several awards, including four Filmfare Awards, Singh is among the highest-paid actors in the country and has featured in Forbes India’s Celebrity 100 list since 2012.
Singh was born on 6 July 1985 into a Sindhi family in Bombay (now Mumbai), to Anju and Jagjit Singh Bhavnani. His grandparents moved to Bombay from Karachi, Sindh, in present-day Pakistan, during the Partition of India. He has an elder sister named Ritika Bhavnani. Singh is the maternal third cousin of actress Sonam Kapoor daughter of actor Anil Kapoor and wife Sunita Kapoor (née Bhavnani). Singh explains that he dropped his surname Bhavnani since he felt that the name would have been “too long, too many syllables”, thus downplaying his brand as a “saleable commodity”. He married Deepika Padukone in 2018.
