Ranveer is the first non-Khan actor to record first ever Rs 300 crore blockbuster film
The Hush Post: Actor Ranveer Singh will be conferred with Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award as best actor for his performance in Padmaavat.
He has not just received accolades for his portrayal of the merciless Alauddin Khilji, Ranveer has also been the reason for top box office collections as he happens to be the first non-Khan actor to record first ever 300 crore blockbuster.
To clarify, Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Awards aren’t the good old Dadsaheb Phalke Award given by the Indian government.
Ranveer’s character as Khilji in Padmaavat has been termed as most ‘outstanding’ and ‘path-breaking.’ Both audiences and critics have said that Ranveer has given the Hindi film industry most iconic villains of all times.
“We take immense pleasure to inform you that you have been finalised for The Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award 2018 for the memorable role for the Padmaavat,” the Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award committee wrote to Ranveer.
This is already the third best actor award that Ranveer has picked up for his stand out performance in Padmaavat.
