Ranveer’s performance was certainly the one that will be remembered for years to come. He digs into the role, relishes and savors the raging, explosive madness of Khilji and comes out as one of the most memorable villains ever. He is presently shooting for Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, a musical drama based on the lives of streets rappers in Mumbai. After Gully Boy, Ranveer will work on Rohit Shetty’s Simmba, an all-out action entertainer, and Kabir Khan’s 83, a biopic on former Indian cricket team skipper Kapil Dev.
