"I got my first award this morning! Mr Bachchan sent me a letter! I find it difficult to express in words what that means to me. I have such a deep connect with Mr Bachchan and admiration. He's sent me a few notes for some of my performances, every time I get a hand written letter, I frame it and it doesn't even stay in the house."
Do you know where he keep those hand-written notes? Ranveer told the entertainment portal, "It goes directly to my bank locker. That's how much value I have for it. So my trophies are kept on display in the house and his letters, my most prized possessions are locked up in the bank account."
