That’s not it. Ranveer also revealed that he won his first Black Lady for Best Actor for Bajirao Mastani, in the presence of his idol and inspiration, Amitabh Bachchan. Ranveer got emotional remembering that night. “I saw Mr Amitabh Bachchan sitting in the first row and clapping for me when I won the Best Actor Filmfare Award for Bajirao Mastani (pauses). I don’t have words to explain how much that meant to me,” he said.

They were performing on the track Tarkeebein from their debut film, Band Baaja Baaraat. He also received the Filmfare Award for Best Newcomer (Male) in the same year, that is in 2011. In his own words, “I will never forget that night. It was my debut so I was anyway tensed as hell. And, the first person I saw was my idol Amitabh Bachchan sitting in the first row and I completely forgot all my steps. It took me time to pick it up from there, I had no control over my senses,” he smiled softly.

Filmfare has a special place in Ranveer’s heart.
