Ranveer Singh cried as he recalls how his father helped him financially

In a video from Filmfare Middle East Achievers Night 2022 (FFME 2022) that took place on Saturday, Ranveer Singh broke down and said, "Aapko yaad hai papa, barah saal pehle, mein koshish kar raha tha aur mein portfolio banane ja raha tha... socha apna calling card leke jayenge aur dikhayenge ki bhaiya mein hoon naya actor, please mujhe kaam do (remember papa, 12 years ago I was trying to get my portfolio made to take to people and ask them for work)."
He continued, "Portfolio ka quotation aaya ₹50,000... bola ke acha wala banayenge, bade photographer se banayenge. Meine bola papa ₹50,000 bohut expensive hai toh papa ne bola 'fikar mat kar beta tera papa betha hai yahan pe' (The portfolio would cost ₹50,000, which I thought was a lot, but my father asked me not to worry and said he will help me)."
He then addressed his mother who got emotional hearing her son's speech. Ranveer said, "Aapko yaad hai mummy chote wale ghar mein... mera audition bohut kharab gaya tha phir mein wapas aya from the airport, I was bawling, I was crying... and said 'mumma mere ko pata nahi mera jo ye sapna hai kabhi pura hoga ke nahi' (remember mom, when we used to live in the smaller house, I gave a bad audition and came to you crying, asking if I will ever realise my dream of becoming an actor)."
He thanked Aditya Chopra and said, "He took a chance on me when no one did and said, 'I found my next Shah Rukh Khan."
