Ranveer Singh made his Bollywood debut just 8 years ago with 'Band Baaja Baaraat' but already has some of the most iconic roles of the last decade to his name in such a short span. Sanjay Leela Bhansali's favourite man has taken some bold decisions when it comes to choosing roles and has pulled them off with aplomb. His Varun Srivastav from Vikramaditya Motwane's 'Lootera' was a passionate lover just like Ram from 'Ram Leela' but both these characters were way different from each other and yet, Ranveer played them with great efficiency and conviction on screen. He has only grown as an actor over the years and while there were some bad choices in 'Gunday' and 'Kill Dil' every now and then, he has outgrown most of the other actors of his generation. The actor who doesn't come with a 'type' turned 33 on Friday and we surely are yet to see the best of him. Apart from his on-screen persona, Ranveer is also known for his larger than life personality, a purported high-profile love life and an indifferent fashion sense. Here are 5 life lessons to learn from Ranveer Singh: 1. Take work seriously, life lightly If you look at any of Ranveer Singh's social media profiles, you would feel that this guy is more into fun than doing his job. But, that isn't the case.
