With lavish critical praise coming his way for Bajirao Mastani, will Ranveer Singh sweep the 'Best Actor' trophy come award season ?
A lot has changed on December 18 for Ranveer Singh. With the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Bajirao Mastani, Ranveer Singh has delivered his career best performance. A lot was at stake for the actor who hasn't had a critic friendly performance since the 2013 art house offering Lootera. So it was obvious that there would be a lot of eyebrows raised when Sanjay Bhansali announced that his Bajirao Peshwa would be played by the over enthusiastic and loud Ranveer Singh. "This is suicidal, is he out of his mind?", was the sentiment of a leading trade expert.
But everything changed with the release of Bajirao Mastani. Ranveer not only shut his haters and naysayers but also went on to deliver his carer best performance. His Peshwa Bajirao is as real as we can get to the historical character. The cool swag and those fashion choices are forgotten as he slinks into Peshwa's armour and becomes the Maratha warrior. After watching the film a lot of critics are of the opinion that Ranveer is on his way of taking home majority of the awards next year.
So far the front runners in the Best Actor category are Varun Dhawan in Badlapur, Amitabh Bachchan in Piku, Ranbir Kapoor in Tamasha, Salman Khan in Bajrangi Bhaijaan. With his stellar performance in Bajirao Mastani the actor has a good chance of creating an upset and stealing the trophy right under the nose of his peers. Given the fact that most awards have a popular and critics category, Ranveer has a strong chance of winning either of the two.
So do you think Ranveer Singh will take home the Best Actor trophy at the awards season next year ? Let us know in the comment section..
