Padmaavat has become the first film of this year (2018) to have entered the Rs 200 crore bracket. Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh have each been receiving accolades for their brilliant performances in the film, however, if there’s one person who has completely outshone his peers in the film, it’s undoubtedly Ranveer Singh. The actor is completely basking in the success that’s coming his way for his role as Alauddin Khilji in Padmaavat. However, there’s a huge possibility that the film wouldn’t have garnered the kind of success it did, if it hadn’t been for the solidarity shown by Akshay Kumar, who pushed the release date of Padman to February 9 to allow Padmaavat to get a solo release. For that, the entire team of Padmaavat will be forever indebted to him, which explains Ranveer’s latest video with the Khiladi star.
Well we all know, the #PadmanChallenge that Bollywood stars, TV celebs, sportsmen and even commoners had been taking up over the last few days to stand in support of the film that’s been made with the intention to destigmatise the “taboo” topic of menstruation. We had been seeing these stars holding a pad in their hand and expressing their support for the film while tagging others to continue the chain. Karan Johar took up the challenge while tagging Ranveer Singh. And now Ranveer being the man that he is, has taken up the challenge, albeit in a different way. Together with Akshay, Ranveer is seen shaking his leg to the title track of the film in a rather funny dubsmash video. The actors are seen at their jolly best and we would be lying if we said we didn’t wish to see them together in a film real soon. The energetic Ranveer and the super athletic Akshay, will make for a classic jodi on screen and give the likes of Sanjay Dutt-Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar-Suneil Shetty, and a run for their money. However, given that both their rosters for the year are full, we won’t get to see them share screen space anytime soon. Meanwhile, take a look at the video below.

Aren’t they an absolute visual treat in this dubsmash video? Ranveer captioned the video, ” All the best to my Superhero @akshaykumar for @padmanthefilm ! In theatres today!” Ranveer has a lot of respect for Kumar, which has only grown leaps and bounds after he pushed Padman to a later date. Previously, he had tweeted, “Big Man with a Big Heart! @akshaykumar … Grateful to you, Sir ….❤️ Mad Love and Respect”. Helmed by R Balki, PadMan, opened in theatres today and has been getting mixed to positive reviews from the critics. The film stars Akshay, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in pivotal roles.
