New Delhi: Ranveer Singh is the unabashed, quirky, humorist of Bollywood. Love him or make fun of him, but the actor never misses to leave his mark wherever he goes. His unexpected appearances and impeccable comic timing is what makes him stand out of the crowd.  

Be it the uncouth yet good-hearted small town slacker Bittoo Sharma in ‘Band Baaja Baarat' or his inimitable ‘swagger' in ‘Goliyon ki Rasleela – Ram Leela', he nailed it all perfectly.  

Just few films old actor has taken the industry by storm with his quirky dressing-style, energy and liveliness.  

As Ranveer Singh celebrates his 33rd birthday today, here are few things that you might not know about the charismatic actor –

2)  He dropped his surname Bhavnani, not for some numerological or astrological reasons, but simply because he did not like too many syllables in the name.

In Singh's words, “the name would have been "too long, too many syllables", thus downplaying his brand as a "saleable commodity". This is what he told to a leading daily last year on being questioned about dropping his surname.

3) Before becoming an actor, he was a copywriter in an ad agency.
