Bollywood star Ranveer Singh, who brought alive Maratha warrior Peshwa Bajirao I on the silver screen through Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Bajirao Mastani”, will on Friday be feted with the ‘Maharashtrian Of The Year’ title.
The grant, by Lokmat, will be gave on the gifted on-screen character by Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis at a service here later in the day.
Ranveer, who has vanquished the heart of Bollywood groups of onlookers with his fizz and undying energy to captivate, has had a fruitful 2015 and a great innings in Hindi filmdom beginning with “Band Baaja Baaraat” in 2010.
