One of the most dynamic personalities Bollywood has ever produced, Ranveer Singh is a force of nature. His unending energy has made everyone either love him or envy him. He is in the news all the time and has been giving blockbusters one after the other throughout most of his Bollywood career. His talent was acknowledged by everyone from his very debut and he has proved his versatility with every character he has portrayed. He can be the slick member of the Mehra family from Dil Dhadakne Do or a local goon in Gunday. He can portray the brave nobility of Bajirao or just be plain cruel like Khilji. He can literally play anything and everything.
In his Bollywood career, we saw many colors of Ranveer through his characters that he played. Let’s have a look at a few of them:
Band Baaja Baaraat – Yellow
The chirpy Bittu who wanted to start a binness with Shruti instead of going back home to work with his father was a delight to watch. A little cool, a little desi, he was oozing the color of mustard fields, which is yellow.
Lootera – Blue
A very non-Ranveer kind of a character, Varun Shrivastav/Atmanand “Nandu” Tripathi was a serious Lootera who, in spite of falling in love with Pakhi, leaves her after looting her family. This one is infused with the essence of blue hues and melancholy.
With all the gulal, passion and love, Ram Rajari only reminds you of one color – red. He is a lover who loved more than his life and climbed boundaries that were created by ancestors. He was a keeper.
Kill Dil – Green
Mainly because of all the green tone on the movie, Kill Dil deserves a green as a whole. Dev, an orphan raised by a local gangster falls in love. That love ends up killing the person who gave him a meaningful life, like every typical love story ever.
Dil Dhadakne Do – Tangerine
We would give Kabir Mehra a tangerine because plain orange will be too downmarket for the Mehras. Kabir is fun and likes to follow his heart but he also has to take over the business empire. He is confused but he is still at a happy place. He is tangerine.
Padmaavat – Black
There are chances that Khilji originally had a black heart. With the kind of brutality and heartlessness that was shown in Padmaavat, his character deserves no other color except vanta black.
Simmba – Khaki
Khaki might not be a color that is usually found in the usual color palette but it is one of most important colors that exist, exactly like Simmba. There are many like him, both in terms of movies and characters, but we still need him to be there. So, we grant him the color of khaki.
’83 – White
Based on the glorious victory of our country, ’83 will have Ranveer play Kapil Dev. Since the entire Indian Cricket Team wore a white jersey while they made the country proud in the 1983 Cricket World Cup, we give this character the simple, yet bright white.
Gully Boy – Grey
The trailer of Gully Boy has shown us different shades of Ranveer character which has put him in the grey area, which is also the color that this character resonates with.
Ranveer has shown us his acting talent and dancing skill but with his next movie, he is expanding his abilities by venturing into rapping. Gully Boy releases on the 14th of February.
