Ranveer Singh called himself a proud Maharashtrian
After receiving the award at this award function in Mumbai, Ranveer described himself as “a proud Maharashtrian”. This award was given to Ranveer by industry veteran Nana Patekar. In such a situation, after accepting the award, Ranveer told actor Nana Patekar, “Nana ji, today your friend and my idol, Amitabh Bachchan ji, on his 80th birthday. I dedicate this award to him today. Ranveer further said, “I wanted to become Amitabh Bachchan since childhood.

Earlier this month, Ranveer had expressed his admiration for Amitabh in an interview with a media outlet. He said, “Let’s just say that the rooms of my heart have their own posters. I can categorically say that she is my biggest idol, a god whom I respect. It was my grandmother who introduced me to the brilliance and artistry of Amitabh Bachchan. While playing VHS after VHS of Amitabh Bachchan’s movies, she would feed me her special homemade Sindhi delicious cello bread. And she used to tell me, ‘One day you’ll grow up and be like her!’
