Ranveer Singh is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after actors of Bollywood. The actor has not just been bagging big-budget films, but also dethroning many from mega-budget ad campaigns.
And now, Ranveer has replaced Hrithik Roshan as the brand ambassador of a leading suiting company, Mumbai Mirror reported. Hrithik had been the face of the brand J Hampstead for the past six years but now rumour has it that Ranveer has bagged the multicrore contract, the announcement of which may take place soon.
No wonder, Ranveer has been doing really well with back-to-back hits. With the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati, which has been pushed due to the ongoing controversy, the actor will surely reach new highs. He also has Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy and Kapil Dev's biopic, both of which are big budget projects.
On the other hand, Hrithik has been away from the big screen for long. His last film was Kaabil, which went on to become hit. Besides, he has also not been seen in ad films for quite some time now.
Meanwhile, Ranveer's Padmavati has been under the scanner for allegedly having some objectionable scenes. The members of Karni Sena and some other Rajput outfits had protested against the film's release, alleging that it would present the historical figure in a bad light.
In the midst of all these protests, Padmavati was also denied certification by the censor board, claiming that the makers did not provide some required disclaimers. Hence, Padmavati, which was supposed to hit the screens on December 1, was delayed for an indefinite period.
There was a strong reaction from all corners regarding the protests against the film's release. Many had called the protests unreasonable. However, it was not just the Karni Sena and other outfits, but some BJP leaders had also supported the demand for a ban on the film.
