All sweetness for Ritika and Ranveer

Ritika, Ranveer Singh’s older sister, has never missed sending him a rakhi, even when he was abroad. What’s more, his Didi gave him a chocolate everyday when he was a child, even sending him dollars to buy mithai on Raksha Bandhan. He used to call his mother ‘Badi Man’ and Ritika, “Chhoti Maa.”
In an interview to Filmfare, the actor once joked that Ritika has always pampered him which is why he grew up so spoilt. However, he was quick to add that while he is the apple of her eye, she is also his biggest critic and always brutally honest.

Ritika was born on August 5, 1983, and in 2018, at his sister’s birthday party, the actor was seen dancing on tables and singing the birthday song. The elegant, single 40 year old is excitedly awaiting the arrival of Deepika Padukone and Ranveer’s first child.

As good-looking as the actress, this graduate from Brown University in the US is a singer, rapper and music producer. His biggest cheerleader is undoubtedly his sister who is also his biggest inspiration, constantly telling him dreams do come true.
