The dashing young actor, whose dream debut definitely sealed a secure future for him in Bollywood, was seen dancing and singing with those present at the event.

The Victor Awards Ceremony, which was held at the Horniman Circle Garden, awarded cancer survivors and those who have set an example for others in society.  One could meet doctors, get information; take part in various competitions to enhance knowledge of cancer.  Skits, games were conducted to break the myths surrounding cancer. Survivors were present to share their experiences.

It’s great to see actors with such a huge fan following especially, to contribute and share in the joys, hope and love in such events. Ranveer’s cheerful and compassionate nature sure worked wonders on all those present at the event, and we hope and wish him all the best for his next Yash Raj Film, Ladies Vs. Ricky Bahl.
