Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh has a sizable fan base for a reason. The actor frequently steals the show with his unconventional fashion choices, witty comebacks, and contagious enthusiasm when he isn't slaying the big screen with his acting prowess. And now he has done it again. At the 2022 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the actor recently gracefully handled a situation where he was not even recognised by the journalist.


He took photos with several celebrities such as Jamaican runner Usain Bolt, Manchester City Football manager Pep Guardiola, England cricketer Ben Stokes, and former West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle. However, an unexpected thing happened with him which has gone viral now.

The actor casually introduced himself, saying, "I am a Bollywood actor sir, here from Mumbai, India. I am an entertainer..."


Netizens have gone gaga over Ranveer’s way of handling the situation and answering Brundle. Twitter user Avinash Das who is the Director of Anaarkali of Aarah and SHE wrote, “ Our  @RanveerOfficial has his own style. He is awesome in every way.”
