He is truly an all-rounder creative genius. It gives me genuine great pleasure to welcome him to the stage to receive yet another prestigious award.” In the video, Ranveer seemed overwhelmed by receiving an award from Stone.

Added Sharon Stone, “Ranveer Singh is a world-renowned Bollywood star and a style icon. He is the recipient of several awards including 5 Filmfare Awards. Since his breakthrough, as you have seen, he is a master of transformation immersing himself in a myriad of characters that have showcased his exceptional range as an actor. Whether it's his charismatic and endearing Bittoo Sharma in Band Baaja Baaraat, the ferocious and vengeful Khilji in Padmaavat or the buoyant and inspiring rapper Murad in Gully Boy, all of which he won Best Actor for, Ranveer brings life into every role, effortlessly blending into the skin of his characters and leaving his audiences spellbound. After his role in Gully Boy, he launched his records demonstrating that he is truly an all-round creative genius. It gives me genuine pleasure to welcome him to the stage to receive yet another prestigious award. "

Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Johnny Depp. My good sir, I have followed your work since Edward Scissorhands and What's Eating Gilbert Grape. What an honour to be receiving in your presence. Thank you for everything you have unknowingly taught me about the craft, master of transformation, versatility, something that I am inspired by you.”
