Ranveer Singh is Khuda Gawah’s Badshah Now


Amitabh Bachchan decides to visit movie sets next door. And so when he dropped down presently on the sets of Bajirao Mastani in Mumbai, he left Ranveer Singh rather overwhelmed with his “magnificent aura”. Following which, Ranveer paid a  homage to the Bollywood veteran in a unique (much expected, it’s Ranveer) manner.

Move over Peshwa Bajirao, for the 30-year-old actor, who is known for his vibrant and quirky personality, took major inspiration from Big B’s famous 1992 film Khuda Gawah and arrived at an event dressed as Big B’s character Badshah Khan from the movie.

Ranveer shed his Marathi garb from Bajirao Mastani and sported traditional Afghani attire at a new event and paired it with a colour coordinated turban and a grey jacket. He even sang a few lines of Tu Mujhe Kabool, a song from the movie, and get the audience cheering for him. (Also Read: Ranveer Singh Says Bajirao Mastani ‘Changed’ Him As a Person)
