Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan sent a handwritten note to Ranveer Singh praising him for his performance in his latest release “Padmaavat”. Calling the letter his “award”, an overwhelmed Ranveer took to Twitter to share the picture of the note and a bouquet Bachchan sent him after watching the Sanjay Leela Bhansali period drama.
“Mujhe mera award mil gaya (I have got my award) @SrBachchan,” the actor, who is receiving rave reviews for his portrayal of Sultan Alauddin Khilji in the magum opus, captioned the tweet. Ranveer, 32, also received a handwritten note in 2015, after Bachchan had watched “Bajirao Mastani”.
Featuring Deepika Padukone in the lead, “Padmaavat” also stars Shahid Kapoor, Jim Sarbh, Aditi Rao Hydari and Raza Murad. The film is going strong at the box office, despite not releasing in some states and acts of vandalism across the country.
