Its not a trophy but a special letter from Amitabh Bachchan
With his stunning portrayal of Peshwa Bajirao in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani Ranveer Singh has suddenly upset the favourites in the awards season race. There is no doubt that Ranveer will find nomination in the best actor category at leading award ceremonies next year. However Ranveer has already won the biggest award he could get - a hand written letter from Amitabh Bachchan praising his performance in the film.
Those who don't know, Mr Bachchan has set up a tradition of sending hand written letters to actors whose work he's admired and loved. Ranveer has got letters from him in the past for his work on other films but he says this one is special.
In fact none of these letters are with him. Ranveer has framed and locked each and everyone of it in his bank locker. He says, "I got my first award this morning! Mr Bachchan sent me a letter! I find it difficult to express in words what that means to me. I have such a deep connect with Mr Bachchan and admiration. He's sent me a few notes for some of my performances, every time I get a hand written letter, I frame it and it doesn't even stay in the house. It goes directly to my bank locker. That's how much value I have for it. So my trophies are kept on display in the house and his letters, my most prized possessions are locked up in the bank account."
