Amidst all the celeb weddings this year, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are my favourite couple. Their contrasting nature certainly makes them super charming couple. Also, there is no doubt that their images from before and after the wedding prove the same. Alongside, Ranveer’s openness while expressing love for Deepika is also something I absolutely adore. Recently, such a moment appeared when Ranveer took to the stage to collect his best actor award at the Star Screen Awards.
This is where my question actually arises. With so many amazing films gracing the silver screen in 2018, did Ranveer really deserve the win?
Well, before pondering more on the question let me show you the moment that awed everyone. Ranveer accepted the best actor award for the movie Padmaavat. After receiving it he gave a heartfelt thanks to everyone in his life and especially to his wife Deepika. Here’s the video.
Later, he also shared a teary-eyed image of Deepika who welled up with joy after Ranveer’s speech.
If you notice the video a bit closer, you will see there are three people present in the stage alongside Ranveer who have also given good movies. They are Rajkummar Rao, Vicky Kaushal, and Ayushman Khurana.
These three actors gave hit movies that were praised by critics and audiences alike. So, why are they not up there holding the award? Some may argue that Ranveer’s acting in Padmaavat has an edge over others. Agreed, he was amazing but there are also those actors who gave brilliant performances in 2018.
While Sohum Shah gave a spine-chilling performance in Tumbbad, Nawazuddin Siddiqui stirred our souls with his acting in Manto. Though lacking a proper story, Ranbir Kapoor’s performance in Sanju was simply spot-on. These are just a few examples among many where the performances of the actors were better than that of Ranveer Singh.
This hypocrisy of Bollywood is not new. For years, deserving candidates are deprived of the awards hosted by the Media conglomerates. The aspects of talent and professionalism are kept aside to celebrate mediocrity and nepotism. While the good actors struggle to get scripts, others often top the charts of those shows that are backed by business houses.
The netiznes were not much behind expression similar views:
Sorry to say but you dont deserve this award..Ranbir kapoor was 1000 times better than any other performance this year and 1lcas time better than yours#Sanju

Ranveer Singh as Allauddin Khilji in Padmaavat was certainly gave a smashing performance. However, there were others who were simply better. Why the award was not presented to those? That is a question that will most probably keep blowing in the wind without ever reaching a definitive conclusion. What are your thoughts on the same?
