Ranveer Singh was a sensation right after he made his debut with Yash Raj Films’ Band Baaja Baaraat. He was quite popular among girls and his infectious and energetic personality soon made him a big star. Ever since then, there has been no looking back for him. From bagging Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s movies to being YRF’s most loved talent, his journey has been commendable and inspiring at the same time. He never expected the love and affection that came his way after Band Baaja Baaraat hit the screens in December 2010. But he was destiny’s favourite child and just getting started. Soon after the release, he was bombarded with proposals from his female fans and everyone was curious to know where he had been all this while. And while the entire Bollywood was singing his praises, there was this one actor whose call made him beam from ear to ear. Yes, we are talking about Shah Rukh Khan!

Ranveer Singh was invited by Simi Garewal on her talk show, India’s Most Desirable in 2011 where the actor narrated this incident. Band Baaja Baaraat had hit the screens and it was just a random day in Ranveer’s life until his director, Maneesh Sharma teased him. The director just casually asked him, “Aur call aagaya, khush hai? (You got the call, are you happy?).” Ranveer who was initially confused didn’t realise what ‘call’ Maneesh was referring to. The director later asked RS to check his phone and he had a missed call from a number that had 555 in it. Now the Padmaavat actor was quick to guess the number belonged to Shah Rukh Khan. He was paranoid that he missed SRK’s call and all he could do was stare at his mobile screen in awe. The story didn’t end here as the phone rang again and this time the actor received it. Shah Rukh had seen his debut movie and had some loveliest things to say. Now that’s SRK for you! He has all the abilities to make your day look a little brighter.
