Ranveer Singh is one of the hottest superstars in Bollywood currently. Though he is often spoken more about for his affiliation with a certain Ms Padukone, his filmography is very impressive. Last starring in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical romance Bajirao Mastani alongside Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, he won a lot of accolades for his role as the fearless Peshwa, and swept away all the major awards for his performance. Now he will be seen next in Befikre, a light romantic entertainer, co-starring Vaani Kapoor, that is set in the city of Paris. We have seen him dancing and canoodling with Vaani in Paris in the movie’s songs, but did you know his love for the French city goes way beyond Befikre, and even his debut?
We found this old video of Ranveer Singh dancing on the streets of Paris for some sort of cultural program that was being held there on October 3, 2008. The entire dance sequence was directed by Shaad Ali, who made Saathiya and the upcoming Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur-starrer Ok Jaanu. The event called “Nuit Blanche” is an annual all-night cultural and art festival in which all kinds of art forms are displayed all around the city from dusk until dawn. In 2008, Shaad Ali had a special event there – “Shaad Ali and the Bollywood Bawaal”. Interestingly, Aditi Rao Hydari, who is rumoured to play his wife in the upcoming Padmavati is also seen in the video. The entire event was about showcasing Indian culture and dance in France.

The song that you hear had been been penned by Gulzar, and composed by Pyarelal, while it was sung by Shreya Ghoshal and Sonu Nigam. The idea of the entire event was to show how a Bollywood song is made, with all those cuts and stuff. It was recreated outside Lyon Railway station.
So what do you think of this video?
