Seven years ago, Ranveer Singh made his debut opposite Anushka Sharma in the much-loved Band Baaja Baaraat, and it is no secret that his first co-star is special for him. Such was their camaraderie that rumours of a smouldering affair soon spread like wildfire, although both Ranveer and Anushka have never admitted to being in a relationship.

Ranveer, who had once called Anushka “the most amazing amalgamation of beauty, talent and intelligence”, is still all praise for her. “It’s wonderful to see how far she has come. She was always amazing as an actor, but her craft has gotten more solid. She’s also come into her own as a person. She’s comfortable with herself and clear about her choices,” Ranveer told Forbes magazine.
