The Dil Dhadakne Do actor also showed off his choti which is a part of his new hairstyle for the Peshwa character. He was seen with the choti even at the trailer launch of Bajirao Mastani.
Needless to say, Ranveer was the life of the launch event. He entertained the audience and the media will great gusto, putting his zeal for the film on full display.
